MONTREAL — Chef Normand Laprise and Christine Lamarche, co-owners of renowned Montreal establishments Toqué! and Brasserie T!, will open Beau Mont and a second outpost of Brasserie T! this fall.
Designed by Sid Lee Architecture, the 11,000-sq.-ft., 80-seat Beau Mont will be open will be located near the corner of Beaumont Ave. and L’Acadie Blvd. and will serve dishes highlighting seasonal products. An open kitchen will give guests a view of the brigade in action. There will be a small gourmet food shop which, much like the dining component, will offer high-quality products from Quebec and Canada. In addition to a selection of local cuts of meat, vegetables and other seasonal foods, customers will have the opportunity to enjoy prepared takeaway meals.
A second Brasserie T!, located within Quartier DIX30, adjacent to the Alt+ Hotel, is the brand’s first step towards expansion in the Greater Montréal area. The restaurant will focus on local products, which has been one of Laprise’s trademarks for more than 30 years. “We should draw more attention to the work of people from our region,” he says. “Supporting our producers is a core value of mine,” he says. “Truly promoting their efforts inevitably involves traceability. We will therefore have the means to put the name of the farm and/or producer on each item.”
