MONTRÉAL, Dec. 20, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Tourisme Montréal is reporting strong results for MTLàTABLE 2019. Nearly 130,000 people came out to enjoy a meal at the 150 participating restaurants throughout the city, generating more than $8 million for local businesses. This is a $1 million increase over 2018.
Local and visiting foodies seized the opportunity to enjoy some of Montréal's creative cuisine and find out why the city is considered the food capital of North America. The event also gave them the chance to sample high-quality Quebec products, which were specifically featured during MTLàTABLE.
Montréal's two-week restaurant event is a Tourisme Montréal initiative that aims to promote Montréal's unique and diverse food scene, while drawing patrons into restaurants during the month of November with affordable set menus.
MTLàTABLE is presented by Aeroplan, Canada's leading joint loyalty program with more than 5 million members. It is also made possible thanks to support from partners like the Québec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Aliments du Québec au menu, Cacao Barry, ESKA, National Bank, Association Restauration Québec and Air Canada.
