Brasserie T! closed their doors in Montreal
You can still try this good address at their new location at Quartier Dix30!
Here’s what we had to say about the Place-des-Arts location:
At the center of the constant hustle and bustle of Place-des-Arts, you will find Brasserie T!, a restaurant that opened in June 2010. This is the second restaurant of the famous Normand Laprise and Christine Lamarche, two important figures of the Montreal culinary scene and owners of the restaurant Toqué!
In developing its design, the architects Daoust Lestage of Brasserie T! relied on the pulse of Place-des-Arts: the result is modern, sleek and elegant.
Easily recognizable from Sainte-Catherine Street, you’ll see its elegant lighting and the large T! logo on an orange background from quite a distance. One of their main draws is their superb terrace, which comes to life in the summer during festival season, when diners can enjoy the spectacle of the fountains and the general buzz of the area as they dine. During the summer season, the T! offers a terrace with about 50 seats in the heart of the action. In winter, before any show, you can savour your meal in a room that seats about fifty.
Located on Jeanne-Mance Street, you will see young and old diners alike savouring dishes for all tastes, before or after a show, during festivals, shows, or simply to appreciate a good meal.
What makes Brasserie T! a very good restaurant in Montreal is that all the products of the restaurant are of the same origin as the Toqué! The traceability of the Brasserie’s product is put forward, we know where the food on our plates comes from and we know its quality. They offer the same quality of meat and fish as at la grande Toqué, but in a brasserie format. In fact, if you want to enjoy a bit of Toqué! but in a more casual and affordable way, Brasserie T! is for you!
Executive Chef André Sterling, a long-time Toqué! alumnus, is responsible for the menu at Brasserie T!. The menu includes cheeseburgers with fries, delicious beef and salmon tartares, confit salmon, Roman bean salad and much more. The house also offers a wide range of charcuterie choices – chicken liver mousse, foie gras terrine, charcuterie platter for 2 or 4, etc. as well as several starters – pan-fried mushrooms, pan-fried foie gras and more – and gourmet desserts.
Brunch is also available as well as a table d’hôte from Monday to Friday ($27 entrée + dish). The menu is also subject to change according to the seasons. To drink, the Brasserie also has a very nice wine list, created by Stéphanie Boulet.
Note that like its sister restaurant, the Brasserie T! is one of our best eco-responsible addresses in Montreal!
We love Brasserie T! for the democratization of its offer. We really appreciate the remarkable quality of the ingredients used and the technique of the dishes served, all in a casual and affordable way. It is great cuisine made more accessible to all!
