Renowned for their boundless creativity, Montréal chefs serve up all the gastronomic colours and flavours found under the sun, always pushing the culinary envelope, even to the point of breathing new, audacious life into the great classics of French cuisine. The proof: foie gras cooked in the dishwasher of the restaurant, Kitchen Galerie. Yes, you read it correctly, in the dishwasher. But the originality doesn’t end there in this neighbourhood bistro that boasts eighty places in a somber, yet ultra-friendly atmosphere. Drawing their inspiration from the stalls of the neighbouring Jean-Talon Market, the chef/owners work their magic as much with their ingredients – the menu changes daily – as they do with their dishwasher, the wine, or even the service as they take on all the duties in this open concept, aromatically divine kitchen/dining room.
