Carlos Ferreira and Normand Laprise, soon in the Quartier des spectacles.
The Quartier des spectacles shines with its diversity, inside as well as outside. “But we’ve noticed a slight deficiency in a discipline that’s very dear to us in Montreal: FOOD! The art of cooking should be part and parcel of a neighbourhood that aims to put Montreal’s cultural creativity on display. There are some great restaurants here already, and in mid-June they’ll be joined by two new ones, led by well-known chefs. Starting with Toqué!, this second address for Normand Laprise will suggest the essence of a brasserie and neighbourhood restaurant. The menu will feature several French classics as well as contemporary cuisine prepared by the Toqué! team. The second is F Bar, from the no less legendary Carlos Ferreira, which will offer an up-to-the-minute take on food with a Portuguese flair. Both will be making their entrance to the Quartier des spectacles in spaces overlooking the Place des Festivals. This splendid public space will display not only Montreal’s design and culture but also the talent of its chefs,” declared Quartier des spectacles Partnership' President Charles Lapointe.
