I know that winter is a depressing season. This one particularly has been cold and deadly. But there are always a few things to cheer us up and what better than food festivals especially at cheaper prices!
The 7th edition of Happening Gourmand started on January 9th and lasts until February 2nd. There are three different price ranges for a table d’hôte, only available during dinner: 21, 25 and 29 dollars. The participating restaurants are: Bevo Bar+Pizzeria, Verses Bar, Vieux-Port Steakhouse, Suite 701, Kyo Bar Japonais, Méchant Boeuf, Taverne Gaspar, Modavie Bistro-Bar à vin and Verses Restaurant. A few of the restaurants offer a lunch table d’hôte at 15 dollars. You can view the different menus on their website. I am hoping to try Kyo Bar Japonais, which I’ve heard is very good.
The 2nd edition of La Poutine Week kicks start on February 1st until the 7th. There will be 32 restaurants to try out, you can view them on their website. I also suggest checking out their Facebook page to see sneak pictures of poutines. There are so many poutines to try but I want the most extravagant ones. It’s only a week away!!!!
The 2nd edition of Le Chop started on January 6th and lasts until February 28th. It’s a similar concept to Happening Gourmand where the chefs “chop” prices on selected restaurants. There are three different price ranges for a table d’hôte: 19, 23 and 27 dollars. The participating restaurants are: Brasserie Decca 77, Newtown, Guido & Angelina, L’Atelier d’Argentine, Wienstein & Gavino’s and Decca 77. You can view thedifferent menus on their website, only available on French. You can also visit their Facebook page. I would love to try L’Atelier d’Argentine, I heard good things about the restaurant.
