Happening Gourmand is back for a 13th edition (from January 16th to February 9th) at 10 participating Old Montreal restaurants. To help you choose Happening Gourmand at less than 25$ from all the reduced-priced table d’hôte offered at : Brasserie 701, Bevo Bar + Pizzéria, Kyo Bar Japonais, Maggie Oakes, Méchant Boeuf, Modavie, Taverne Gaspar, Verses Bistro, Jacopo and Vieux-Port Steakhouse, we selected 5 menus for you to enjoy at less than 30$. Because we all need a little “pick me up” after the Holidays.
**Another interesting addition this year: the restaurants partnered up with Spa William Gray and Rainspa for a special promotion and Happening Gourmand brunch diners receive 25% off any spa treatment over 60 minutes.
Maggie Oakes Happy Hour Menu at 12$
New this year:Happening Gourmand added Happy Hour menus to their overall offer and the one offered at Maggie Oakes consists of : one drink (between a selection of cocktails and wine by the glass) and one snack for 12$.
For few dollars more you can upgrade your snack or drink as well.
Bevo Bar + Pizzeria Brunch Menu at 17$
The Happening Gourmand Brunch Menu at Bevo Pizzeria is interesting because we rarely think about this popular pizzeria for brunch ; so why not now? For 17$, receive a basket of fresh pastries and a choice of main (we are curious about the Pizza Stack served with nutella and maple syrup, yummy!).
You can add a brunch’s favourite, the bellini peach cocktail, for 12$ more.
Jacopo Dinner Menu at 29$
The latest restaurant of the Antonopoulos group, Jacopo, has been a hit since its opening. Why not take advantage of Happening Gourmand to try their 29$ dinner menu ? That consists of your choice of antipasti, secondi and dolci (dessert) and the options are more than fair: squash risotto, pork tenderloin, grilled pork sausage…
The restaurant is also offering a special wine selection to accompany your meal.
Taverne Gaspar Dinner Menu at 25$
The Happening Gourmand Dinner Menu at Taverne Gaspard consists of a 3-course casual “comfort food” table d’hôte with: your choice of appetizer, your choice of main (flat iron steak, grilled salmon, garlic snail gratin) and the dessert of your choice for only 25$.
Additional options can be added for few dollars more.
Kyo Bar Japonais Dinner Menu at 35$
For an additional 5$ you can try the Happening Gourmand Dinner Menu offered at 35$ at Kyo Bar Japonais that consists of a 3-course “sharing style” Japanese Izakaya-style featuring one appetizer, three main dishes (tapas style), and one dessert. The selection of Japanese dishes is rich and features a selection of makis, goyzas, fried octopus and beef sashimi.
