Simon Mathys to Join La Famille in September

Screencap: Balnea Été des Chefs 2013

Simon Mathys, late of the now defunct MTL Cuisine restaurants Racines and Bar & Boeuf in Old Montreal, will assume the mantle of chef at Micro Resto La Famille as of September 9.

Mathys shared the news with a crowd of Omnivore World attendees on Saturday as he prepared to demo two dishes at the Société des Arts Technologiques. The chef was frank about what went wrong at Racines.

"It was the difference between a restaurateur and an investor. I thought there was a good buzz but after a few months it just went to shit."

La Famille recently lost chefs Jérémy and Maxime Daniel-Six and sommelière Sophie Duchastel de Montrouge to Ma'tine.
