Chef Maksim Morin
Maksim Morin grew up surrounded by good food. He owes his passion for the culinary arts to his father, the executive chef at Mirabel airport. After graduating from École hôtelière de Laval, Maksim honed his culinary chops at such renowned Montreal eateries as Decca77, Area, Aszu, Joe Beef, Liverpool House, and McKiernan. He quickly made a name for himself in the kitchen and swore that one day, he would open a restaurant all his own. A restaurant where he’d set the menu, and where he could bring his flamboyant ideas that always pan out.
Maksim’s signature dishes are a tasty blend of local products and international flavours. His imagination—and stove—is brimming with creativity! And he’s clearly in his element in the kitchen. Maksim loves Montreal. He takes a distinct pleasure in seeking out unpretentious little shops in neighbourhoods across the city, stocking up on provisions at modest Korean markets and out-of-the-way bodegas. He’s curious, loves trying new things, and adores working on new menus. In a word: he’s passionate. And it shows!
