Old Port’s Place Jacques-Cartier now has a new resident that glitzes and shines amongst its beautiful cobblestone roads.
Restaurant Harlow is open for business.
Inspired by actress Jean Harlow, Harlow combines elements of 1930s Old Hollywood glamour and art deco to create a unique fine dining experience masterminded by a partnership between Stevie B. Hamron and Brahms Yaiche.
If you’ve been hiding a rock and haven’t met either of these guys, they come with quite a hefty portfolio focused on the creation and management of projects involving art, music, and fine food.
“We wanted Montrealers to reconnect with one of the most beautiful, but too often neglected, sectors of their city: Place Jacques-Cartier. We also wanted to offer tourists a quality address,” shared Stevie B.
The establishment’s décor was inspired by the art deco movement of the 1930s and ’40s and was designed by Philip Hazan, who created four sections that include a dining room, a bar, a living room, and terrace (during spring and summer).
But since the image above surely has you salivating, let’s talk menu, too.
Chef Jason Bivall previously of Au pied de Cochon and Hôtel Gault, as well as Toronto’s Didier Leroy, Scaramouche, and Canoe, has created elements of Nouveau American cuisine, with a touch of great French classics. Only using the freshest Quebec products, Harlow claims that their menu will push the limits of contemporary fine dining in Montreal.
Harlow is open from Wednesday to Saturday at 6pm; if you’re looking for a supper club vibe, they will have a live DJ on Thursdays and Saturdays.
