Following the overwhelming success of the wildly popular Time Out Market Lisbon, which saw 3.9 million visitors in the last year alone, the Time Out Group has been gradually spreading the concept across North America, with the lone Canadian location set to open later this fall in Montréal.
In June, Time Out Market Montréal announced its first collection of vendors, brimming with local culinary talent from the likes of Normand Laprise's Burger T!, Le Club Chasse et Pêche, Montréal Plaza, Le Red Tiger, and more. This week, the food and cultural market introduced its second list of restaurants and chefs joining the fray at the Centre Eaton location.
“Together with the local Time Out editorial team, we have spent months testing and tasting Montréal’s best food—and this city really has lots of it! We then selected the very best chefs and restaurateurs to join Time Out Market and we couldn't be more proud that the city’s most acclaimed culinary talent accepted our invitations to join,” commented Didier Souillat, CEO of Time Out Market.
“This curated mix we are bringing under one roof is a reflection of Montréal’s culinary excellence and will make Time Out Market Montréal a unique place and experience, and a great addition to Centre Eaton. There will be something for everyone--whether you come in the morning, during the day or in the evening. You will get to choose from an incredible range of the city’s best cuisine, served on fine china and enjoyed in a communal setting. We are making fine dining casual, and casual extraordinary--we call it the democratisation of fine dining.”
Olive et Gourmando, Foxy, Dalla Rose, Atelier et Saveurs, Foodchain, Marusan, and Grumman ‘78 are the latest additions to join the curated mix of Montréal’s new Time Out Market family. While Time Out Market has said that they still have one more announcement in the works before opening, which will include the location’s final additions as well as details about its beverage and cultural programming, the sheer amount of talent and variety already on display is staggering.
Time Out Market began as a London magazine in 1968 with the focus of inspiring and enabling people to explore and enjoy the best food their city had to offer. Since then, Time Out editors have been bringing their vision of food, drink, and cultural experiences to its readership to “help people go out better.” Today, their global team of local expert journalists curate the best things to do in 315 cities in 58 countries across websites, magazines, social media, and live events.
