Edward Zaki (BarBounya, Chez Victoire, Mimi la Nuit), Dave Schmidt (Maïs, Café Sardine/Izakaya Iwashi, Datcha, Kabinet, Le Mal Nécessaire) and chef Hachiro Fujise (Izakaya Iwashi) have made over Cielo at 5329 Saint-Laurent, corner Maguire.

The bygone tapas restaurant will be reborn in the next three weeks as Thazard. Zaki describes the new venture as "French bistro feel with a Japanese menu. Fish, charcuterie, bubbly, cocktails and most important the kitchen will be open until 2:00 a.m."

About the name. Wikipédia divulges that "le terme thazard est un nom vernaculaire désignant plusieurs espèces de poissons apparentés aux maquereaux."
