Let’s keep this #nomnom hashtag going with yet another gem springing up on the corner of Mont-Royal and d’Iberville (2490 Mont-Royal est) from Greg and Mike Silas of Typhoon Lounge and Steve Leslie of Taverne sur le square.
Le Sieur d’Iberville’s inspiration came from two Montreal institutions – the brasserie and the rotisserie – by incorporating new elements such as the black and white colors of a classic Parisian brasserie. Think warm and welcoming elegance.
“By revitalizing two Montreal institutions, we hope to offer our patrons a unique dining experience,” says Mike Silas, Partner, Le Sieur d’Iberville. “Our goal is to pay homage to an icon of the city’s history, create a warm and friendly ambience, and offer exceptional food with great service and attention to detail,” adds Mike.
The menu revolves around chef-driven bar food and a spice of Louisiana inspirations; the massive wood-fired rotisserie with the capacity to cook 18 chickens per hour will serve that just fine.
Have a big group of buddies? Worry not, the space is surrounded by large tables that accommodate groups, and platters intended for sharing are offered along with draft beer served in ‘growlers’ – you know, antique-styled pitchers.
Le Sieur also features an uber-cool ‘beer dumbwaiter’ that connects the ground floor to the basement, which was uncovered during renovations and dates back to the 1950s.
Okay, enough details. Swing by at 9 pm tonight; food will be served and proceeds from drink sales will go to the Fondation CHU Sainte-Justine – we love these guys already.
