Hôtel Herman

Hôtel Herman fans take note: the restaurant will host two events on Tuesday, December 22, and Tuesday, December 29 with special guest chefs. Next week chef Marc-Alexandre Mercier will welcome Mehdi Brunet-Benkritly, formerly of Au Pied de Cochon, and back in the city after stints at New York's Bar Sardine and Fedora, into his Mile End kitchen to collaborate on a $60 prix fixe menu (with a $40 supplement for liquid pairings). Call Hôtel Herman at (514) 278-7000 to reserve your spot—this event is likely to book up fast.
