After years of living in the shadows of New York Restaurant Week or even Toronto's Winterlicious, Montreal Restaurant Week finally became a full-blown reality in 2012. I say full-blown because the Antonopoulos Group, a well-known family business that owns a handful of restaurants and boutique hotels in Old Montreal got a head start on the concept in 2008 and ran with it via Le Happening Gourmand, an annual event that shares the same format as Taste MTL though on a much smaller scale. Same thing with Le Chop. So, you could say we've got two, if not three Montreal restaurant weeks. But for a city that frequently claims it has more restaurants per capita than any other metropolitan area in North America, there's more than enough room for everyone, don't you think?
