Lounge « GARÇONS! » – Ste. Adele
(Reviewed October 2012)
restaurant is called “Garçons” because of its two chefs, who pride
themselves on creating a rich, tasty cuisine.
They are Jean-Marc Jorand, and Jean-François Daigneault who are
proud to welcome you to their Bistro-Lounge.
Their menu is inspired by their grandmothers and mothers since
they believe that the older pots create the best plates, yet they are
adapting the dishes to our times.
It is also a Lounge where you can come and relax with friends, or
on your own, with a drink and little finger foods.
The décor, and table settings, is warm and comfortable.
It may also interest you to know that you can attend a workshop
about matching wines to meals with the sommelier Jean Beaudin at the
rear meeting room, which is also available for private meetings and
parties. The whole place is
decorated with large collage paintings created by artist Lucie Lacroix
who also serves your dinner with a smile.
restaurant is open 5 pm daily.
They do have a daily Table d’hôte including salad or soup, main
dish and a desert. I sat
outside in their terrace encircling the building and chose the Thursday
special, which included a salad of tomatoes and bocancini cheese, main
dish of tender lamb-shank with herbed potatoes with ham bits, and green
beans. The desert was a
yogurt with blueberries served in a tiny mason jar.
With a coffee the bill was $29.84.
Their desert list also includes a tiramisu with cream and whisky,
specialty coffees, and crêpes.
This bistro is a lovely choice for a meal prior to the cinema,
which is just around the corner of the building.
Restaurant opens 7 days a week at 5 pm.
