If there is one thing that's synonymous with a successful night out, it's a good brunch the next morning. Especially when it's the first day of a new year! Montreal is truly obsessed with the late-morning meal, and while we are spoiled for choice when it comes to where to get it, few places deliver an all-you-can-eat, continental brunch buffet experience that doesn't cost you a fortune, and more importantly lets you bring your own alcohol!
Picture this: A towering 40" chocolate fountain, flowing with Barry Callebaut Belgian chocolate, and surrounded by a whole selection of tasty fruits, marshmallows and cookies for dipping.
A Flambé & Pastry station, stocked with fresh Viennoiseries, miniature cakes, and our personal favourite, decadent Crêpe Suzette or Belgian waffles flambéed in Grand Marnier, with your choice of fruits.
A Hot station serving up eggs anyway you want them, with all your favourite breakfast trimmings, as well as other lunch choices including roasted salmon in creamy vodka sauce, à la minute pasta, and succulent English-cut prime roast beef sliced right there in front of your eyes.
Or if you're looking for something a little lighter, the Chilled station offers an assortment of salads, homemade cured and smoked salmon, oysters, prosciutto di Parma, salmon tartar, avocado with crab, and much more.
To wash it all down, bring your favourite bottle (or two!) of wine or champagne to mix with freshly-squeezed orange juice for your own endless supply of mimosas.
All that for $35. Perfect for your post NYE hangover munchies!
If you've ever been to Portovino before, you already know that it not only serves up high-quality, farm-fresh, classic Italian dishes with an urban twist, but has also redefined the BYOW concept in Montreal for over 10 years.
Portovino's New Year's Buffet Brunch will be served from 10-4pm but make sure to reserve ahead of time because it will fill up fast!
