Tastet , the blog from Le Devoir food critic Jean-Philippe Tastet and daughter Élise Tastet, is the first on the scene at June Rose, the new restaurant from Big in Japan in what was Ginger on des Pins and Saint-Laurent in the Plateau.

The interior from André Nguyen evinces throwback Chinatown charm. As does the menu. The $25 all-you-can-eat format ($20 off-peak hours) features a procession of classics made new again.
