Did you know it’s Burger Week? (Yes, another one)

“Le Burger Week” is a multi-city, Montreal-based rival to Toronto’s homegrown Burger Week, which happened last May (and whose future is now uncertain, thanks to the demise of its founder, weekly newspaper The Grid). The francophone-ish version—currently taking place in six different cities, including Toronto, Montreal and, intriguingly, Port-au-Prince, Haiti—follows a pretty similar procedure, albeit with fewer participating restaurants and, unfortunately, higher prices. Until Sunday, September 7, nineteen spots in the city will be serving at least one special burger (accepting, in some cases, the loosest possible definition of that term). The options include truffled cheeseburgers, Chinese burger buns and, from Queen West restaurant Lisa Marie, a Nutella-slathered beef stack that will be familiar to those who made the Toronto Burger Week rounds last summer. (The price tag—a whopping $15 to last May’s $5—will be slightly more novel.)

Until Sun. Sept. 7. Various locations, leburgerweek.com
