Old favourites will also be returning to this high-end cafeteria in the Eaton Centre, like Il Miglio, Paul Toussaint, and Le Red Tiger.
In a press release, Didier Souillat, CEO of Time Out Market, said, "We are pleased to offer guests an immersive and engaging way to enjoy the authentic flavor and variety of the city, at a time when consumers are looking forward to in-person experiences again."
So, make sure you're ready to eat on Friday, July 2.

The event name, Sudbest, perfectly captures the goal of the event. Organizers call it the Sud-Ouest's "largest commercial revival initiative," bringing forward as many of the borough's merchants, artists and artisans as possible.
"The Market is intended to be a tailor-made economic stimulus tool for artists and merchants in the Sud-Ouest by giving them a commercial opportunity to promote themselves as part of an event reflecting the neighborhood," said restauranteur Gaelle Cerf, one of the event leaders, in a statement.
At the market, you can expect to find a 100% Quebec wine and cider bar run by the owners of the new convenience store Le Cinq à Sept (Ville-Émard), a bloody caesars bar at Lord William Pub and a "post-pandemic" beer made specially for the event by 4 Origines Microbrewery.
You'll find food trucks, a Perles et Paddock oyster bar, jerk chicken grilled by Boom J, Food'elles and more.
At this month's event, DJ Kelly (Rap Mommies) will be spinning on Saturday from noon to 10 p.m. On Sunday, you'll find Jazz St-Henri, 99 Wolves, and ELMNT at the DJ booth.
Fifteen stands are expected at the first Le Sudbest weekend, according to communications coordinator Julie Poulin. But Poulin told MTL Blog there are already 35 kiosks confirmed for the next event on August 28 and 29.
The third and final (for now) Sudbest weekend is scheduled for September 25 and 26.
Entry is free and dogs are allowed on a leash.

I must admit, I had never been to New City Gas (I moved here during the pandemic — please forgive me), so I had no idea what to expect. The first thing I thought was, "WOW, this space is so cool!" We walked into the lobby-bar and I was instantly taken by the exposed brick and hanging lights, which created a boho-chic Mykonos-esque aesthetic. Of course, that included a hanging bed.
We stepped inside and walked through the mysterious yet cozy and inviting interior complete with mirrors and candles galore. Before entering the restaurant, we passed through the artisanal marketplace, featuring goods from Meraki, a Laval-based boutique filled with handmade goods and imported treasures from Greece.
Next, we headed into the restaurant, which is so spectacularly done that it feels like one of the most high-end, chic spots on the Island of Montreal but with a totally relaxed and laid-back vibe. Thanks to the decor — complete with hanging baskets, long tables, neutral tones and vibrant greenery — you truly feel like you're in Tulum or in Greece.
We tucked ourselves in for a four-course meal by Chef Massimo Piedimonte of Le Mousso. We were told that the menu was "a tour through the Mediterranean": tapas, a fish course, a meat course, and dessert. Paired with drinks prepared by sommelier Maxime Laliberté of Maison Boulud and mixologist Lawrence Picard of Nectar & Co., I was in absolute heaven.
Between courses, we checked out the open-air gallery outside by S16 and the NFT Gallery by 0x Society, which is actually the first of its kind in Canada. Both of these will be available all summer long.
When the sun went down and the lights came on, the ambiance was even more spectacular. Co-owner Alex K. told me the team was inspired by their travels to places like Tulum and Mykonos, not just for their food and culture, but for the way they exude positive summer vibes. And that's exactly what I got from Bazart from start to finish!

Why You Need To Go: For a taste and the vibes of the Mediterranean right in the heart of Griffintown.
Tickets for the game against FC Cincinnati will be exclusively available for season ticket holders, who can confirm their tickets online as of July 15 at 10 a.m, with ticket restrictions to comply with occupancy limits.
The Club is also giving away 350 tickets to frontline workers and their families, "as a tribute to their colossal work" during COVID-19.
"The past few months have been very difficult for our players and staff, who had to go into exile, but they have shown tremendous resilience," said a statement by CF Montreal president and CEO, Kevin Gilmore.
"We’ve been working closely with the league, the two other Canadian clubs and the different government levels to be able to play in Montreal."
The game will kick off on Saturday, July 17 at 7:30 p.m.
This video shows Montreal street names being changed to New York ones. MTL Blog reporter Alex Melki was able to have an individual confirm that it was allegedly part of the filming for Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts.
And from what the following photos show, it's looking like there are all kinds of different cars in whichever film is being shot at the moment, which is very on-brand for a Transformers movie.

Dorchester Square is seemingly one of the main locations for this current movie shoot.

We know Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts is for sure being filmed in Montreal, we simply cannot confirm this movie set is for the film — although it's highly likely to be. And if that's true, then that means Anthony Ramos, one of the main actors in the new movie, could be in Montreal. Keep your eyes peeled!
