This January marks the 6th edition of Happening Gourmand, the annual month-long festival organized by Experience Old Montreal (a.k.a. Group Antonopoulos). Throughout the month, the group's eight restaurants offer three-course menus at a reduced price. Today we were invited to a lunch tasting for the media at Restaurant Verses, to sample dishes from participating restaurants' menus.

The tasting menu featured five courses from four different establishments: Suite 701, Modavie, Verses and Aix Cuisine. The selection of dishes gives you a good idea of what to expect from the proposed lunch menus, priced at $15 for three courses ($23-$27 for dinner).
"Clementine dressing and roasted sunflower seeds"
"Cream cheese with paprika and dried tomatoes"
In addition to the restaurants mentioned above, the group owns BEVO Bar + Pizzeria, Méchant Bœuf, Taverne Gaspar and Vieux-Port Steakhouse. Whether you like these places or not, there is no denying you will get your money's worth this January. So until the 3rd of February, you can up the ante on your everyday lunches and casual dinners by taking advantage of Happening Gourmand. Bon appetit!
