The eighth annual edition of MTL à Table began on Friday and runs through Nov. 13. For those unfamiliar with the concept, it’s one of those discount table d’hôte events giving Montreal foodies on a budget an incentive to venture out to try new restaurants during the cold months. See the list of participating restaurants — charging either $23, $33 or $43 for their table d’hôtes this year — and more details here.
