Montreal's biggest Christmas market, the Grand Marché de Noël, is taking it up a notch with a new holiday-themed pop-up restaurant this year. In addition to the usual food stations with snacks and mulled wine, you'll find l'Orangerie in a green building behind the Winter Gardens and the big Christmas tree.

This restaurant is open for brunch, high time and dinner.

"L'Orangerie is like a Christmas cabaret, especially lively at night, with live jazz music shows. La Lutinerie team dreamt of opening a high-end service for visitors," Line Basbous, founder and director of the organization behind Montreal's Christmas markets, told MTL Blog.

For $55 per person, you can enjoy a festive brunch including a mimosa, coffee, fruit, a pastries basket, eggs, and potato gratin with sausages or, for vegetarians, avocado toast.

The high tea option costs $39. Guests can choose a festive tea paired with bite-sized sweet and savoury snacks. For an additional $15, you can order a chocolate fondue with a Belgian waffle, marshmallows and fresh fruits.

If you want to experience l'Orangerie at night, the six-course diner menu is $109 per person, including a glass of champagne, an onion soup, oysters, créme brulée, ravioli, hot wine and local cheeses. There is also a children's menu for $20.

Basbous confirmed that Montrealers can stop by and simply order a cocktail if they don't want a full meal service. The restaurant is also accepting private party reservations.
