Opened on December 10, Salle Climatisée is the new address on Saint-Laurent Boulevard that is already a nice addition to the Little Italy neighbourhood.

From the start, the project looked promising with its talented instigators, who we knew in turn at the restaurant Maison Publique. Brendan Lavery, Harrison Shewchuk, and Darcy Gervais Wood have joined forces and opened a delicious restaurant with market flavours.

If the trio was already opening a restaurant together, the health crisis was the trigger to take the plunge. With their daily lives on hold, the three friends embarked on the Salle Climatisée project in order to create a space in their image.

The beautiful team called upon the help of François Séguin for the decor where pastel colours warm the space. We can also admire the paintings adorning the walls, which is the work of François’ wife, Susan Scott. On the graphic design side, Farah Khan, founder of House9 Design, created their logo and business cards.

In the kitchen

Harrison Shewchuk and Darcy Gervais Wood create a delicious seasonal menu with a choice of meat and fish. Right now, we’re enjoying an aged roast pork with flat cabbage and charcuterie sauce, as well as a trout confit, served with roasted delicata squash and rye. To accompany it all, they offer a choice of three salads: smoked eel remoulade, beef salad, or celery root salad with seaweed vinaigrette and roasted garlic.

During the day, delicious gourmet sandwiches and other small treats are available to take-out.

On the wine side

Brendan Lavery has created a short wine list with organic, biodynamic, and natural products. The wine list resonates with the proposed menu and reflects the relationship of trust with the importers and local producers.

Salle Climatisée is a beautiful address to visit without further delay in Little Italy!
