Arëm Builds a Mystery in Griffintown

If more Turkish and the rise of Griffintown were both part of your Montreal food forecast for 2014, now is the time to play the lottery. Arëm (Harem) is here - almost, it opens on Friday - and man-about-town Jean Philippe Tastet was on the scene yesterday.

The Le Devoir critic reports that the restaurant has very exotic décor, a huge kitchen, VIP room and a DJ booth. Tastet also calls the Griffintown newcomer "very flamboyant and original."

In advance of Arëm's launch, management has sent select lifestyle and food bloggers keys and special invites to "enter a universe of mystery." How enigmatic.

More details to come, obviously.
