Eloi Dion, the original chef at Van Horne, is back, some twenty-one months after this tweet.

Dion's new kitchen will be at Mimi la Nuit, the Piano Rouge buvette reboot in Old Montreal from principals Jeff Stinco and Edward Zaki.

"We're thrilled to be working with a chef of Eloi's caliber," says Stinco. "We're extremely fortunate to have him."

Dion's skill helped catapult Van Horne on the 2011 enRoute best new restaurants in Canada list. Gazette critic Sarah Musgrave wrote at the time:

Dion's market-driven card, short and stunning, has one foot in a flexitarian future. Its roster of four main courses (one meat, two fish and one vegetarian) is so creatively handled, it makes standard protein-heavy restaurants seem tired and outdated.
