From Nov. 1st-11th, some of the best restaurants in Montreal will be offering three levels of prix fixe menus, including a late-night $19 option, as part of Taste MTL Resto Week. From the finest dining to BYOWine spots, you’ll have lots of opportunities to sample restaurants you usually, regrettably restrain yourself from due to common sense.

We like to use prix fixe weeks as an excuse to schedule dinner dates with all our favourite humans. Take your lover on a date, schedule a catch-up with your favourite friends, treat your parents (for once), or even take your mentor out for a thank-you meal. It’s great to eat out without feeling guilty about it. You can find a list of participating restaurants, and see their menus, here. You can also make online reservations-aren’t you organized? We’re into everything about this except the lack of vegetarian and vegan options available-maybe call ahead and see if they’ll work around you?
