Previous restaurants:
Les Enfants Terribles — Outremont

Inspirations:
My family was always cooking. I was able to learn a lot by observing my mother, father and grandmother especially, and I could always eat nice home-cooked meals. When I started cooking school, I wasn’t sure about making it a career; I did it mainly to gain knowledge. It made me fall in love with professional cooking, and I have been dedicated to it ever since.

Favorite meal:
A dish I often ate during childhood: salmon cooked in foil with white wine and brown sugar.

When stars align...


In the fall of 2007, during a family dinner, Francine Brûlé mused aloud about taking on a new challenge. For this mother of three grown boys, veteran businesswoman and charismatic leader, a restaurant seemed a natural choice. In the following days, she found the perfect site at the corner of Bernard and Champagneur in Outremont. On February 1, 2008, she took over the space.

Artistic director Alexandre Brûlé Brosseau and architect-designer Louis-Joseph Papineau renovated the space from top to bottom. They installed glass doors at the front and added features such as rustic wood, chalkboards, an open kitchen, murals by Tim Barnard, long wooden tables and a magnificent central bar. Inspired design and a clever layout helped create an inviting and cozy atmosphere. On April 14, 2008, the new eatery welcomed its first customers. During lunchtime and weekend brunch, the space is awash in natural light. In the evening, any reason is good to drop by and say hello to Francine and partner Serge Bruneau, himself a seasoned restaurateur. During the first summer, the patio became one of the city's most popular, and the restaurant was an immediate hit with foodies of all ages.

Les Enfants Terribles revisits the classics and also crafts innovative and simple dishes with a festive, flavourful and unorthodox touch. Francine Brûlé has managed to recreate the homey atmosphere of a somewhat chaotic household where the fare is comforting, original and refined. Les Enfants Terribles is a place you'll want to adopt. Once you have, you'll realize you're now one of us, an Enfant Terrible!
