Happening Gourmand: 10 years of Good Food at Good Prices

happening gourmand 2017 melrikablog

The wallet is a little empty after the holidays but you still wanna continue celebrating and treating yourself? You will love to hear that the Happening Gourmand is back for its 10th anniversary!! And what’s even more fun is that you have a whole month (from Jan 5th to Feb 5th) to try different restaurants in the Old Port!

What it is: a whole month where you can try a table d’hôte menu from various restaurants in Montreal’ Old Port at a reduced price, either 23, 26 or 30$ for a three course meal. Who said fancy couldn’t be inexpensive?!

What’s new this year? In addition to the ‘classics’ that you may have tried in the previous editions of Happening Gourmand, like BEVO, Modavie, Suite 701, etc., this year you will be able to try the new restaurant Maggie Oakes! Also, for each table d’hôte served, all participating restaurants will donate 1$ to the association Dans La Rue, which helps young people who are homeless or in a precarious situation. Eat well and do good!

What we love:

  • the vast choice of meals at BEVO Bar + Pizzeria
  • How can you choose between mushroom risotto, Niçoise salad, and steak?! We want them all! At Modavie, a favourite!
  • The complexity of the the meals at Maggie Oakes

PS: Did you know? Melissa and Marika both LOVE a good steak, and it has become a yearly tradition to meet up with dear friends to enjoy a good steak in the Old Port, in the coldest months of winter! 😉

Bon appétit!
