Brasseur de Montréal inaugurated a 5,000-square-foot restaurant and bar, with terrasse, in the Gare Viger development next door to the CHUM super hospital this week. Groupe Jesta, the developer behind the million-square-foot project, made the announcement yesterday. The third restaurant from the Griffintown microbrewery is located on the ground floor of the complex's Gare Berri building. Groupe Jesta states that "[t]wenty craft beers brewed in Griffintown will be on offer, as well as a varied menu at an excellent price."
Brasseur de Montréal was started in 2008 by Marc-André Gauvreau and Denise Mérineau. Alain Lord Mounir, President and CEO of Julia Wine, a company that sells wines to Costco and Couche-Tard, joined the company in 2014 to add distribution clout. Gare Viger is a $250-million mixed-use development in Old Montreal anchored by Château Viger, a once-neglected landmark. Brace for more restaurant news from Groupe Jesta soon.
Status: Brasseur de Montréal, 775 rue Berri, (514) 903-4500. Open Monday to Friday for lunch and dinner, Saturday after 3 p.m.
