Happening Gourmand... quality issues

foodie_mtl | Jan 21, 2013 11:45 AM

I remember a few years ago, when Happening Gourmand first started, everyone seemed excited to take advantage and I did, probably every year since. Last year I recall having mediocre meals (Vieux port steakhouse, Taverne Gaspar). Vowed not to repeat.

This year, at the request of a friend, we went to Bevo (a new addition to their lineup I believe), and felt equally, if not more disappointed than I was last year (under seasoned food, pathetically tiny portions, and just an overall "meh" feeling). We did pay extra for prosciutto and after splitting a wine bottle, the price tag was 100$/couple.

We have reservation for Aix on Friday, and I am contemplating cancelling. But I am not sure if two upscale restaurants (Verses and Aix) are perhaps more interesting. Anyone have any feedback on Aix, during Happening Gourmand? Thanks
