The only thing that hasn’t changed since Toqué! moved from its old space on rue Saint-Denis to the open concept dining room designed by Jean-Pierre Viau in Old Montreal is the quality of its kitchen. Chef Normand Laprise’s masterpieces are heavily influenced by French cuisine, but also by local and seasonal ingredients. The seven-course tasting menu is a real delight, as are the restaurant's special occasion events (we loved the collaboration with Chef Mauro Colagreco for the celebration of Relais & Châteaux's 60th anniversary).
