There’s a new food event in the 514. Say hello to Mac&Cheese Week, an event created by restaurants, for restaurants. The event has been organized by Le Cheese with event co-host, L’Gros Luxe and official media partner – yours truly – Nudabite.
Mac&Cheese Week kicks off in two weeks, and will run between the 9th until the 16th inclusively. Mac&Cheese Week will feature some of the city’s most creative chefs, where guests will also be encouraged to provide feedback on their overall experience – a mini survey which will be done at the end of their meal. Mac&Cheesers will then be asked to vote for their favourite dish – right here on Nudabite!
“We really wanted to do something different. We wanted the focus to be on the restaurant, and managed by a support network of neighboring restaurant owners. We’re all friends and respect one another, so this was a great opportunity for us to come together, collaborate, do what we love most and create some magic.”
– Ben Carter, of Le Cheese.
Event hosts Le Cheese and L’Gros Luxe X2 (on Bernard and Saint Andre) will join the following participating restaurants; Diablos, Burger Royal, Dirty Dogs, Pierre et Pierre, SUWU, Evoo and Dinnette Tripple Crown.Dinette Tripple Crown Mac&Cheese.
Some over-the-top combinations will include recent La Poutine Week winner Dirty Dogs, who will serve their mac&cheese hot dogs topped with foie gras. From extravagant avant-garde creations to the simple yet powerful ‘less is more’ recipes, M+C Week will undoubtedly tantalize the taste buds of Mac&Cheesers throughout the city.
Mac & Cheese Week will cover the plateau, The Main and Mile End, as well NDG and the Southwest areas of Montreal. A tasty Mac will range between $8 to $18. Starting this Friday, Le Cheese and Nudabite will release a video-a-day countdown to showcase each restaurant and give potential visitors a glimpse into the restaurants and their featured Mac& Cheese dish.
Guests are encouraged to tap into social media to share feedback, and become engaged in the daily Twitter Q&A’s for each restaurant, using the #macweekmtl hashtag.

Stay classy. Come hungry.
‘’C’était important pour nous de créer un festival de bouffe qui rassemble la communauté. Nous désirions mettre le focus sur les restaurants participants plutôt que sur le brouhaha médiatique qui entoure souvent ce type de festival à Montréal. Nous sommes tous des amis, on se respecte les uns les autres et il s’agit, pour nous, d’une superbe occasion nous permettant de travailler et collaborer ensemble afin de faire ce qu’on aime le plus au monde: créer de la magie fromagée’’.– Ben Carter de Le Cheese
