Europea - Montreal
Montreal has worked hard to maintain it's original historic buildings which lend locations to beautiful venues all over the city including Europea in it's three floor Victorian townhouse just off of the downtown strip. What used to be an art gallery is now home to the Relais & Chateaux member since 2011 and Grandes Tables du Monde member since 2013, one of only ten in North America. The beauty of these older buildings is how the original brown brick interior blends seemlessly with almost any decor style including Europea's urban contemporary decor. The styling matches the plating which is modern in presentation, but prepared using traditional French techniques. Have a look at my Dined There lunch at Europea below.
or as Europea call it "Guilty Tree from Candy Land"
Montreal prides itself on being a fine dinning capital and the city has Ferrer's achievements to thank for a part of that title. He is thankful back to the province he calls home stating that he "prefers the blue of Quebec to the blue of the Mediterranean", making him a true Quebec ambassador in the culinary world. Ferrer along with his childhood friends turned business associate have five restaurants under the Europea group. The restaurant is currently offering a 15th Anniversary lunch menu and be on the look out for the Europea food truck during the summer months.
