One of the most anticipated new restaurants of the fall, Lavanderia from chef Antonio Park, is slated to open sometime in October. Now, for the first time, we have a visual on what to expect from the parrilla concept at 374 Victoria in Westmount. (Spoiler: meat.)

This enthusiastic Instagram caption drops some hints as well: "Asado? Parrillada completa? Chorizo de casa? Ensaladas, pickles, kimchis? Pescados frescas? ALL GRILLED IN BINCHOTAN CHARCOAL? "LAVANDERIA" opening in October 2014!!!! #asado #chimichurri #parrillada #completa #mandioca #pescado #chorizo #porelamordecocinar"

Binchō-tan or white charcoal, is a traditional oak charcoal from Japan that apparently burns longer and at a lower temperature than ordinary charcoal.

Of his second restaurant, the Chopped Canada judge told Eater Montreal months ago:

"My parents used to have a laundry business in South America. Remember stonewashed jeans in the 1980s? They made those. This was in Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil. They had many employees and made like 80,000 washes a day for Lee and Wrangler. So Lavanderia will be an ode to my childhood."
