Thirteen local restaurants engage in friendly competition during city’s first La Poutine Week.

Cornwall, ONT., May 23, 2016: The Seaway Food Festival released the final list of participants in the city’s inaugural La Poutine Week which will take place from May 24th to May 28th.  The concept is pretty simple: local selected restaurants develop special poutine dishes and customers vote for their favourite one. Thirteen (13) establishments will be battling in this friendly competition where three (3) awards will be handed out: The People’s Choice, The Jury Award, and The Poutine Of The Year. Participants in this poutine celebration are:

Truffles Burger Bar Nautica Grill & Wine Jet Set Pub Sheep’s Head Bistro
Rod’s Fry Shack Bar Q Chef In A Bun Deke and Squeak’s Bar & Grill
Eight Zero Zero Resto Lounge Schnitzels The Village Diner Winner’s Sports Bar
ESCA Gourmet Pizza + Bar


To take part in this event is pretty easy. No tickets, coupons, or vouchers are needed. Simply go on the La Poutine Week website, view all the poutines, and make your choice.

“We are blown away by the poutines that were entered in for this special week. I’ve always known that we had some talented people in our culinary scene and that will truly be on display during this competition. I think what is truly amazing is taking this well-known and historic dish and putting a unique spin on it. This is very much an exercise in creativity and our participants have put a lot of thought and time into producing these dishes. A lot of people will be surprised, shocked, and frankly excited when they see what these restaurants have produced,” added Sebastien Manigat, Director of the Seaway Food Festival.

It is also very easy and simple to vote! Simply visit the site and enter the special code of your favorite poutine. You can also download the App, available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
