Le Cuisinomane's addresses: Everyone at the table for MTLàTABLE!

The addresses of the Cuisinomane: All at the table for MTLà TABLE!< /p> UPDATE DAY

With more than 100 participating restaurants for the 10th edition of the MTLàTable gourmet festival, there is enough to treat yourself to (at least) a small evening at the restaurant!

  • From November 3 to 13, table d'hôte menus at various prices ($35, $45, $55 and $75) are offered throughout the city.< /strong> 
  • Whether you want to travel to your own city, discover a new table or reconnect with your favorite restaurant, the appointment is on! 

Le Virunga< /strong>

The Virunga is a little hidden treasure in the heart of the city. You can taste a cuisine that does not run all the streets: that of Africa – particularly that of the south of the Sahara -, and if we go even further, we could even speak of a fine sub-Saharan gastronomy, of which the majority of ingredients come from Quebec. Local farm beef braised at a low temperature with spinach, roasted squash and mashed yam (a cousin of the potato), grilled trout fillet with seasonal vegetables in a lobster sauce, half-cooked mango with vanilla ice cream for dessert…

Why not take advantage of the festival to travel?

Kitchen Galerie

The Kitchen Galerie restaurant is the perfect representation of the unpretentious, festive and gourmet Montreal bistro, with impeccable cuisine. It is the place where the great French classics have their place on the menu as well as the original and daring creations. After a warm welcome from the team in the kitchen, treat yourself to a foie gras parfait or a classic truffled beef tartare, before enjoying a sirloin of beef or diving into cloudy lobster gnocchi.

It is following a rejuvenation cure at the Marriott Château Champlain hotel that the Lloyd restaurant emerges in a completely transformed space. The menu proposed by chef Kevin Mougin is inspired by his experiences in large Polynesian hotels, embellished with local products and French techniques. A sashimi of hamachi (white fish) accompanied by Quebec squash and aji ajillo (Peruvian condiment) is a delicate preamble for the gourmet smoked beef rib, or the salmon enhanced with a coconut-cardamom pumpkin purée which makes travel. Sylvain Vivier, the pastry chef, will put the finishing touches with a selection of desserts that will make you want to do it again.

Darna Bistroquet

All the warmth, hospitality, generosity and delicacy of Morocco, with a unique French touch, all with products from Quebec. Here is how to describe the charming restaurant at Darna Bistroquet, located in the Rosemont–La-Petite-Patrie district. Grilled pita that you generously dip in a creamy hummus, thin slices of grilled halloumi that make your mouth water, a comforting tajine with chicken confit, a lamb couscous from Quebec or vegetables from here… To complete the little Mediterranean feast, what better than a gazelle horn duo with orange blossom and mint tea?
