Three former employees of the now closed L'Autre Version in Old Montreal unveiled their fish and seafood restaurant in Mile End-Outremont last night. Le Pier 66, from Jessie Lassonde and Pierre Jean, and chef Marc-André Lavergne (Accords, Aszu), replaces the short-lived Anabel Bar et Vin (the redesign is by F&Y, of Bar Shinji, Mangiafoco).

Lassonde: “We worked hard, we wanted to do almost everything by ourselves. After a lot of hard work and late nights I'm very proud of the result! It's my dream (and my dad's dream) come true! It was a project I had in my head for so long.”

Pier 66's menu is "95% fish and seafood", and the restaurant has a counter where customers can purchase fresh fish and shellfish, and assorted homemade sauces, and other prepared foods for home. "Maybe lobster rolls, but who knows," Lassonde speculated. "It's still a bit early to tell." Look for a $20 prix fixe lunch menu, with a sharing plate format for dinner. On the beverage side it's classic cocktails, and a lot of sparkling and white wine.

Status: Le Pier 66, 361 Bernard Ouest, (514) 903-6696, open Tuesday to Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. (counter open 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.).
