Lili Co., the 'micro-resto' from partners Catherine Draws and David Pellizzari, will be micro no more after it departs from the corner of Bienville and Mentana for 4675 Saint-Laurent, corner Villeneuve, reports Tastet blog.
French Connection Montréal — a BYOW restaurant du terroir — will make way for the new Lili Co. sometime in the new year. The move will double the restaurant's current capacity of 28.
Draws reports that the old FCM will look very different when her restaurant moves in:
"Quite a bit. Louis Béliveau from La Firme and Emilie Schoofs from L'atelier 3/4 fort are (involved with) the project. They are going to rebuild and redesign (the space)."
Draws adds that with the new locale the kitchen will make a few adjustments. The restaurant will develop 5 à 7s, add a later service and beef up the cocktail program. Look for lunch a few days a week too.
Lili Co.'s last service at 4650 Mentana will take place on December 21.
