Fabrizia Rollo, known to many for her stint on Radio-Canada's Les Chefs!, recently worked her last shift at Kitchen Galerie. The Laval native and ITHQ grad is now at the helm of the restaurant's new venture at 6950 Saint-Denis, corner Bélanger, in the former Aux Derniers Humains.
Brïz is the latest project from the Kitchen Galerie trio of Mathieu Bourdages, Mathieu Cloutier, and Axel Mevel. Rollo, a partner as well as chef, describes the food as Mediterranean with a lot of Italian influences. "It's an open kitchen concept (45 seater) with a seasonal menu and a blackboard for 'cuisine du marché' items." Of note now that gorgeous weather is upon us: a 20-seat terrasse on Bélanger.
Status: Brïz, 6950 Saint-Denis, (514) 507-1331, certified open.
