Prohibition 2.0 Is Ready To Party

The former Prohibition Montreal was just down the street.

MONKLAND VILLAGE — The 2.0 version of popular comfort food spot Prohibition is gunning for an official opening on August 11. General Manager Rachelle Beaudoin says the larger space had been refurbished with new appliances, handmade tables, and new ceilings. New head chef Fiona McAuliffe will update the menu with specials like this cheesy fried polenta with mushrooms, arugula, bacon, and a poached egg. But "We’re not changing anything that anybody loves," confirms Beaudoin. Meanwhile, the former Prohibition location at 5674 Monkland, will become Sous Sol, a casual salad and sandwich concept.

PLATEAU — Sun-filled brunch and dinner spot Orange Burgers and Brunch is about to reopen after a months-long renovation at the notorious stretch of Prince Arthur between St Laurent and St Louis Square. The owners could not be reached for comment, but a sign in the window notes a reopening date of Sunday, July 31. This seems like a good move — they’ll be just in time to accommodate the throngs of tourists hungover from Osheaga. [Update, 8/3/2016: Last night Burgers and Brunch was reported to be closed and empty. The aforementioned sign was no longer on the door. Stay tuned for updates.] [EaterWire]
