For its sixth edition this year, MTL à TABLE is back and bigger than ever! With 175 restaurants in Montreal participating in this 15-day foodie adventure around our city, it’s no wonder that their slogan is “Taste the best of Montréal.” From November 2 to 16, 2017, you’ll get to try a variety of cuisines and table d’hôte style menus for three set prices: $21, $31, or $41. It’s a great way to discover what Montreal has to offer with an easy-to-use website, thanks to Tourisme Montreal.

What’s great about MTL à TABLE is that it allows you to try restaurants that might normally be outside of your price point. New in 2017, they even have two of Montreal’s top restaurants at $71, Toqué and Europea. If you can’t make it for dinner, don’t worry; they have added $15 brunch menus from select restaurants!

You can navigate the MTL à TABLE 2017 website by restaurant name, cuisine type, neighbourhood, price, or option (vegetarian, BYOB, brunch, and special events). This year, there are 15 restaurants that have special events for MTL à TABLE. For example, Bistro Brasserie Les Soeurs Grises is offering their diners a 30-minute visit of their brewery, including a beer tasting at a cost of $6 per person!

Another restaurant participating in a special event is La Champagnerie. They are offering guests a cocktail workshop with their expert mixologists, where they get to create a unique and personalized drink for $15 per person instead of the usual $21. Of course, you have to reserve for these special activities.

We’ve personally tried at least two to three restaurants per year since we first heard about MTL à TABLE back in 2014. We’re always impressed with the price-to-quality ratio of each tasting menu. The highlights were Su’s 2016 brunch menu, Kyo Bar Japonais’ 2015 dinner menu, and La Betise’s 2014 dinner menu.

With three services to each menu (usually an appetizer, entrée, and dessert), be sure to go hungry! Don’t forget to book your table in advance; a lot of these restaurants get full really fast.
