MONTREAL — The new Le Boulevardier Restaurant and Flâneur Bar Lounge are now open at Le Germain Hotel Montreal.
“Guests will feel like time has stopped when they sit down at Le Boulevardier Restaurant,” says Bruno Durand, the restaurant’s partner and operator. “The atmosphere is at once vintage and contemporary and, combined with the unique view of President-Kennedy Avenue, is at the heart of the enjoyable experience the restaurant offers and, of course, so is the cuisine.”
Le Boulevardier offers a menu inspired by Parisian brasseries, featuring fresh and local fare, with a strong emphasis on seafood. A French-inspired wine list, reinvented retro cocktails and a variety of whiskies and cognacs round out the offering.
Flâneur Bar Lounge serves three of the great gastronomical pleasures — coffee, bubbly and oysters. The concept is simple, guests can start their day by sipping a cup of steaming coffee and finish on a high note with a glass of bubbly and freshly shucked oysters.
The concepts are led by chef David Pellizzari, who boasts 24 years of experience in renowned restaurants such as Santropol, Réservoir, Buvette chez Simone and Lili Co.
Designed by the renowned Atelier Zébulon Perron, the decor at Le Boulevardier Restaurant and Flâneur Bar is characterized by the use of contemporary and modern materials with elegance as the unifying thread. The decor evokes contrast and uses natural materials, velvet, leather, wood, tubular features and marble.
The 125-seat restaurant offers an additional 45 seats at the bar. Le Boulevardier also serves hotel guests during special events that take place at the hotel.
