You’ve got to try this one-night-only fusion feast at Time Out Market.

Save the date of February 22 on your calendars and start prepping your appetites like Thanksgiving was coming early this year. As part of Montréal en Lumière’s Nuit Gourmande event on February, Time Out Market Montréal’s restaurants and chefs are putting their heads together to create one amazing menu you only get one night to try: Each eatery will be doing a dish inspired by another restaurant. We’re calling it Time Out Market Montréal Enters the Twilight Zone.

When you look at the all-star line-up we’ve got at the market, a collection of varied accomplished culinary backgrounds, an event like this one makes for creations that are as curious as they are wild and crazy: We’re talking Japanese-Italian fusion, Portuguese chicken pizza, Haitian-French pastries, Vietnamese ice cream and more.  Think of it like one big pop-up event that’s happening at 17 restaurants on a single street, all serving special menus over the course of one evening.
