Hijacking the heart of Montreal, The Drake is pumped to host four events that will have you packing for Ville-Marie. Bringing you one-night-only menus from Montreal’s finest Le Bremner, Hôtel Herman + Le Majestique plus an 86’d Poutine Party (yeah, that’s right, we said poutine party).

With such a rich culinary landscape, Montreal is one of the country’s most diverse and eclectic food capitals. From its famous smoked meat sandwiches, wood-fired bagels and multi-cultural cuisines; there’s always something cooking in Canada’s cultural capital. It’s no surprise that Montreal has the highest number of restaurants per capita in Canada! Lucky for you, we’re bringing authentic Montreal style, flavours, cuisine and wildly successful chefs to The Drake properties so you can taste the rich culinary history for yourself.



First up, we’re polishing off March Break at Drake Devonshire with Guest Chef Dominic Lalonde of Montreal’s famous Le Majestique. For the County installment of our Montreal Guest Chef series, we’re bringing La Belle Province to Prince Edward County with a Maple In The County twist. Our take on the sugarbush tradition includes bacon-braised in maple syrup + cider and maple syrup toffee cake. Bringing the buzzy flavours of Le Majestique; a restaurant notorious for its inventive seafood dishes and oyster bar, we’re throwing it down for a maple-inspired menu that will make you feel like you’re living in Montreal’s winter wonderland. Call 613.399.3338 or email to reserve.
