I posted this over in "2009 Openings" but figure it might be worth a post of it's own.
I have not been yet, plan on going today for brunch.
Here's what I know so far:
5322 blvd Saint-Laurent (the former Mile End Bar. As a setting, could be very promising)
The chef is from London. Since arriving here last year he's been working at Chasse et Peche. (in London he was at "Gordon Ramsay at The Narrow" and "Magdalen")
There is a connection with Cocoa Locale. (These are friends of mine, respecting their privacy.)
They do not have their liquor license yet so they are only doing lunch and weekend brunch until they do.
The menus (they post them on Facebook) look *fantastic*. (attached)
Looking forward to some proper Bubble and Squeak (even though I will be back in London in 2 weeks myself but hey)
