Take a Hard Hat Tour of Laurea and Lorbeer


The facelift of Laurier BBQ is almost complete as new partners Jeff Stinco, Éric Le François and Cindy Simard look to reboot the restaurant that shut down in 2013 amid a run of management missteps.

The makeover from Rebecca Bourque is considerable - the designer had over 8,000 square feet over two floors and a basement to contend with. Chef Hakim Chajar will evidently have a state-of-the-art kitchen in Laurea at his disposal and, as the photos indicate, the Lorbeer side of the two-in-one project will double as a platform for the West Shefford brewery that Stinco now owns.

Above all, however, what the photos divulge is that the space is impressive - and massive. The obvious challenge for the new stewards of the old Laurier BBQ will be to fill it on a consistent basis.
