It didn't take long for Jean-Philippe Miron to land on his feet.

A month after Globe's shutter on Saint-Laurent, the chef is moving on to La Société Downtown.

Here, the official announcement:

Montreal, QC, November 10, 2014 - Ink Entertainment's Charles Khabouth is pleased to announce that Jean-Philippe (JP) Miron has joined La Societe Montreal as Executive Chef. The announcement comes at the conclusion of Taste Montreal (Montréal à Table), where JP ran a very well received "Pop-Up" restaurant, showcasing his extraordinary culinary talents.

Formerly the chef at Restaurant Globe and sous-chef at Au Pied De Cochon, Miron has a deep-rooted passion for discovering his own culinary style and technique.

Born in Repentigny, Québec, Miron worked in restaurants as a teenager and knew he wanted to be a chef at the early age of 18. A graduate of l'Institut de tourisme et d'hôtellerie du Québec, Miron interned in New York with Scott Conant (Scarpetta) and David Chang (Momofuku). His internships were followed by a stint at Simpléchic with Louis-François Marcotte, and then under Alex Gosselin (now with Chez Victoire). In 2011, he was a contestant on Les Chefs!

"I'm thrilled to be joining La Société. It is a great establishment to explore different aspects of classic French cuisine. My team and I are very excited to dive in and realize the properties potential," says Miron. A gathering place unlike any other in the city, La Société's interior-which features built-in furnishings outfitted in rich mahogany, custom marble mosaic tile floors and aged leather-was designed by Munge Leung. La Société's most notable feature is undoubtedly the jaw-dropping stained-glass ceiling, rich in color and design.

The design was inspired by Charles Khabouth's and Alessandro Munge's visits to old-world boulangeries, cafés and patisseries in Paris.

After La Société was the subject of a zero-star review by Lesley Chesterman in September, 2013, management divulged that no personnel changes, either in the front of the house or the kitchen, were in the works.
