Le Bremner MontrealPosted By Jennifer Ho Sep 04 2011 · 0 comments · Dining Out, Old Montreal
Le Bremner is one of Montreal’s newest and most popular restaurants – not only has it been all over the Urbanspoon talk of the town, but it has been quite successful in getting a fair amount of attention just through word of mouth. This buzz may mostly be because of its celebrity chef owner, Chuck Hughes. With a sweet spot on St. Paul street in the Old Port and one of the most beautiful terraces I’ve seen in a while, the back part of the restaurant is an absolute gem. Weather permitting (fall and colder weather fast approaching), make sure to request for a spot out there. Surrounded by rustic chic decor and leafy greens, paneled/embossed ceilings and great big wooden tables, Le Bremner has its look nailed. The lack of signage makes it very possible for people to miss Le Bremner – the word “Restaurant” is written in simple red lettering above steps leading to a basement level giving it a more underground, exclusive feel.
Throughout the course of the evening, we each had three main dishes, as recommended by our waitress. We ate and drank plenty – more than enough. With three mains, you’re good to go and plus the dessert (because everyone always has room for dessert), you’ll leave likely leave happy, maybe a little drunk and definitely full. You’ll also probably be able to skip breakfast the next day.
