Can you believe that Montreal, this mecca of gastronomy and the city that has the highest number of restaurants per capita in North America, has never had a restaurant week until now? Unbelievable, right? That is about to change though with TASTE MTL, Montreal’s first ever restaurant week, which will take place from November 1 to November 11th, 2012.Taking cue from some of the biggest cities in North America, this restaurant week is sure to please Montrealers and tourists alike.
Close to 100 Montreal restaurants will be participating in this event by creating special fixed price or table d’hôte menus at friendlier prices so this will be a great opportunity for you to try some of the best food the city has to offer without putting too much of a dent in your wallet. The participating establishments will offer menus at $19, $29 or $39 for dinner (before taxes and service) and $19 for the late night menu (when applicable).
In addition to the special restaurant menus, TASTE MTL will offer five, 90-minute, gourmet tours which will take you on a culinary and historic discovery of some of Montreal’s favourite neighborhoods. Book a tour prior to your restaurant reservation and enjoy a few delicious tidbits and bites about your hood of choice, a most perfect way to wet the appetite.

In honour of TASTE MTL, I’m giving away two tickets to dine at restaurant Madre during the event, any time between November 1st and 11th. Madre is a latino restaurant from chef Mario Navarrete Jr. and one of my favourites in Montreal. They will be creating a special menu for TASTE MTL which I am certain will be delicious.
