Urban Expressions interviews Jonathan Lapierre-Réhayem and elicits some strong, timely quotes from the Laloux chef.

The quality of life for a chef is much better than one in France or Asia. Respect, passion and teamwork are important Montreal values.
On the downsides of the restaurant scene.

Lapierre-Réhayem also gives some love in the profile to Toqué!, Birri at Jean-Talon Market, Société-Orignal and Saint-Denis café La Petite Cuillère.
