Gordon Ramsay is making his first foray into the Canadian restaurant market by opening a new upmarket establishment in Montreal.
The new restaurant is named Laurier Gordon Ramsay and opened its doors earlier this month at 381 Laurier Avenue West in Outremont. The development of the menu will be overseen by Ramsay himself, who will serve as a consultant.
“Montreal has such a vibrant culinary tradition, and it is both exciting and challenging to be part of a local institution that has defined dining out for generations of people,” he told AOL.com.
“Laurier Gordon Ramsay is about good food, friendly service and a brilliant atmosphere. We’re the ultimate casual dining destination in a city that’s passionate about what’s on the plate.”
The menu at Laurier Gordon Ramsay will feature a mixture of classic dishes and comfort food. A 75-year-old traditional recipe is used to prepare Quebec-raised, grain-fed rotisserie chicken. Burgers and smokey ribs, grilled salmon on a wood plank, a shrimp and crab roll and a porchetta sandwich with aioli and arugula are other highlights of the menu.
“Whether you dine at Laurier Gordon Ramsay twice a week, as many of our regular customers do, or only once during a visit to Montreal, you will remember the experience. Our team is like a family, and we’re bringing top-quality comfort food to the table in an environment that feels like home,” manager Marie-Christine Couture told AOL.com.
