New summer food festival encourages Quebecers to try out over 100 Montreal restaurants

It’s probably been a long while since you’ve dined out in Montreal, but thankfully a new summertime food festival will try to change that.

Tourisme Montréal, in collaboration with the City of Montreal, the SAQ, the Association Restauration Québec (ARQ), and National Bank, has introduced MTLàTABLE Off-Trail, a city-wide food festival taking place from now until the fall.

The initiative encourages Quebecers to try new restaurants and eat their way across the city’s vibrant food scene and neighbourhoods.

From now until October 11, more than 100 establishments will be offering special meals (renewed every month) to be enjoyed in restaurant dining rooms, on outdoor patios, or at home.

For this year’s edition, instead of offering fixed-price menus, the city’s chefs will propose unique dishes featuring seasonal products grown in Quebec.

”We developed this special edition of MTLàTABLE to stimulate the restaurant sector and encourage people to explore the city’s neighbourhoods with inspiring itineraries and savour the city’s culinary creativity,” says Yves Lalumière, president and CEO of Tourisme Montréal. “This year, we want to show our love and solidarity with the people behind Montreal’s incredible restaurants.”

MTLàTABLE’s participating restaurants will change throughout the food fest and will be offering one or two new table d’hôte menus each month.

A three-course fixed-price meal will be served at the following four price points: $20 to $35, $36 to $45, $46 to $60 or $61 and up.

Organizers say the new format will allow foodies to plan “all sorts of incredible gourmet getaways in the city this summer.” Festival-goers are asked to visit the MTLàTABLE website, select the neighbourhood you want to visit, the price that suits your wallet, the menu that tempts you, and that’s it.

Each participating establishment will showcase seasonal products as well as wine pairings and Quebec spirits that go best with their locally driven meals.

Happy eating!
