Catalan chef and restaurateur Carles Abellan is in town to open the first Tapas24 outside of Barcelona, in partnership with the MTL Cuisine Old Montreal restaurant group.
A media/PR launch will take place today. A first look at the space here, in the old Safran et Cannelle at 420 Notre-Dame Ouest.
Other notable principals in the project include radio host Sébastien Benoît. The chef is Haissam Souki Tamayo and the wine list comes courtesy François Chartier. Lawrence Picard of Nectar & Mixologie is responsible for the cocktail program.
With Tapas24, MTL Cuisine now operates seven restaurants in Old Montreal.
