P.A. & Gargantua

Slowly but surely, food trucks have gone brick-and-mortar since street food became a legit enterprise in Montreal. Grumman 78, Landry & Filles, Das, and more, have taken the plunge from meals-on-wheels to full-blown restaurant-hood. The latest is grilled cheese peddler P.A. & Gargantua, which plans to open La Tannerie, a bring-your-own-wine restaurant, on Ontario Est in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve this March. An adjacent prêt-à-manger counter and grocery store, Chez Gargantua, will open simultaneously.

The projects are the brainchild of Paul-André Piché, the P.A. in P.A. & Gargantua. The principal took some time out from La Tannerie's build this week to say that he's excited by the challenge, and thinks HoMa is still a largely overlooked neighbourhood. As for the street food leap and the choice to go bring-your-own-wine, Piché declared that "the restaurants that work most in HoMa are BYOB. I told myself it was time that I make the move to open a restaurant after my three years of experience with the food truck."
