Last March, as restaurateurs all over Quebec, strived to find solutions to survive the pandemic crisis, two young women from Montréal’s Sud-Ouest borough imagined a project that would revolutionize the experience of gourmet boxes. Indeed, Anne-Marie Giguère (BARROCO) and Kassandra Brochu (Atwater cocktail club, Blossom) have recently started operating a new delivery service of ready-to-cook dishes offering the delicacy of some of our best chefs and producers. A new way to eat well that, in the midst of a second wave, could become a precious tool for the city’s foodies! The online platform offers the Cambodian flavours of the restaurant Les Street Monkeys, the vegan dishes of Bistro Tendresse, the colourful food of Grumman’78, the pasta of Moleskine, the laid-back cuisine of the restaurant Mauvais Garçons, the Lebanese flavours of Sumac, and the French bistro cuisine of Restaurant Wellington. This Friday night between friends, on the menu: Moleskine’s pappardelle bolognese sauce, marinated meat by the Street Monkeys chefs, vegan dumplings and, for dessert, dark chocolate, and nuts cookie dough from Bistro Tendresse, why not? With Les Weekendeurs, dinners come from every corner of the city and can satisfy the preferences and intolerances of your guests. Three days of delivery — Thursday, Friday, and Saturday — order before Monday, 5 p.m. to receive it on Thursday; before Tuesday, 5 p.m. to receive it on Friday; and before Wednesday, 5 p.m. to receive it on Saturday. Moreover, a pantry section makes it possible to order Quebec products to season, enhance or marinate dishes, or even eat by the spoon (we’re not judging!), such as the Smoke Show sauces, La Pincée spices, Nos Cabanes maple products, or even the sweet honey of the Miels d’Anicet company.
Undecided? It is also possible to opt for discovery boxes. A wonderful idea for a Christmas gift, for example! A Les Weekendeurs box will always be enjoyed, no matter what the occasion is.
Born from a common passion for great food, Les Weekendeurs is an answer to a flaw of the food delivery system in Quebec. When you know that Uber Eats, DoorDash and Skip the dishes take a 30 percent cut, in addition to forcing restaurateurs to lower their prices, a more viable alternative for our Montréal chefs was needed! The team at Les Weekendeurs only takes a 15 percent cut, in order to maintain their operations. Furthermore, they do not interfere with the pricing of products by restaurateurs/producers.
