He is back! One of Quebec’s better young Chefs is back behind his stoves. After working at restaurant Toque! for years , Chef Crête partnered with the team at restaurant Majestique. His new  venture (restaurant Montreal Plaza) is now expected to be opened this summer on Plaza St-Hubert. There is no denying that Chef Crête is a good  Chef, in his prime. That said, I found him to be at his best when cooking classic French dishes, and at times less convincing  in some of his  contemporary creative twists. According to what he said to the medias, his intent is to offer food that is affordable as, in his own words he “prefers having his customer back at his restaurant oftently instead of  dropping by for special occasions” –  Source:

IIn other news, Joel Robuchon has found an interest for Montreal. In my early years as a gourmand, I was lucky enough to have tried his food when he was cooking in person at Jamin (Paris), but his nowadays worldwide success as an entrepreneur is of little importance for me. His restaurant will be situated inside the Casino of Montreal. – Source:
