Montreal Social Top Restaurant Series?

  • 8

Has anyone ever attended any of the dining events of this group?

They are doing a dining series and the first restaurant is Au Pied Du Cochon sounds interesting, but there is not much more info on other restaurants in the series etc.

Anyone ever been or know the group?

Thanks

  1. Looks like this is their first event.

    Holy stock photography, Batman! Check out the website: http://www.montrealsocial.com/

    Edit: it looks they've been active in 2007. I just checked the calendar on the website.

      Well, although it looks interesting, I can't help but wonder if this is a food and wine club or an internet dating site...

        Thanks for the link SnackHappy.

        I emailed them and received a reply today saying that they are not a singles club but "a group that hosts social events to bring together people who are passionate about food, wine, the arts and culture"

        As per their website it seems they have hosted several wine, spirits and food tastings and very nice locations.

        I signed up to their mailing list so probably if an event comes up that interests me I will give them a try.

        Seems like fun way to meet fellow foodies and have a great meal.

        Once again, anyone ever attended any of their events?

        Tell me, does this photo look like its a real group of random people that came together online to enjoy in epicurean pleasures? Or does it look like an add for lavalife? I would proceed with serious caution to make sure you're not the expense of someone making a buck.

        1. re: onlydelicious

          I think they have used stock photos, and very cliche ones. There seems to be an underlying assumption that the task of socially eating out is reserved for the beautiful and privileged people who see this practice as a part of their "life style".

          On a related note, I also came across "Montreal Tasters Club". It sounds interesting, but also it seems defunct. Has anyone been to their events?

            No idea, but they certainly serve(d) a pretty limited age group: "The Montreal Tasters Club bring together people from 25 to 30".

          ok i was prepared to blast you - you're extremely critical - however i happen to agree, oouch but its that blue type.......

          1. re: insearchofyummy

            I just got an email from them and they are doing a dinner at Bleu Raisin.
            It looks like a package deal, one price and everthing is set. seems reasonly priced.

            So once again anyone ever been or know anything about the group or other dining clubs?

            Anyone suggestions for any of the "Montreal en lumiere" events starting this weekend?
