Jorge da Silva Jr. of MTL Cuisine confirms today that Barcelona chef Carles Abellan will indeed helm a new venture for the Old Montreal restaurant group.
Thanks in part to his experimental and creative flair, the Catalan cook is largely credited with the revival of Barcelona's tapas scene with restaurants like the influential Comerç24, Tapas24, Bravo24 and Suculent.
MTL Cuisine has been busy of late. In addition to the Abellan partnership, the group recently opened Racines and has a Portuguese brasserie in the works for the Le Victoire condo project on Saint-Jacques, slated for 2015.
The address of the new restaurant is still under wraps.
