Many great chefs have taken over the kitchen of the successful restaurant Les 400 Coups, located in the Old-Port of Montreal. First opened in 2010, it was originally run by chef Marc-André Jetté (now at Hoogan & Beaufort), pastry chef Patrice Demers & sommelier Marie-Josée Beaudoin (now at Patrice Pâtissier). It was first taken over by Guillaume Cantin (season 1 winner of Les Chefs!), then later by Jonathan Rassi (formely at Restaurant Park). Now, Jason Nelsons has taken over the reigns as head chef (formely at Renard Artisan Bistro).

Les 400 Coups suggests an affordable 3-course meal for $35 showcasing local Quebec ingredients. Available from Tuesday through Thursday. Here is a preview of their menu:


For appetizers, we opt for the duck terrine served with toasted bread. It is brightened with oxeye daisy capers, homemade dijon-style mustard, pickled onions, and beet emulsion.


The raviolo is our personal favourite. Filled with a mixture of wild mushrooms and smoked ricotta, it is eaten with an umami-rich mushroom broth infused in tarragon.


As for mains, go for the duck breast complemented with perfectly seared duck hearts. This is served with luscious duck jus, black radish, and buckthorn berry.


For a taste of the sea, go for the seared arctic char and mussels with smoked tomato cream and nori.


Or for something rich and unctuous, the lamb tart is your best bet – pulled lamb, wild mushrooms, and bacon on a thin crispy tart shell.


For dessert, the only option is their gooey chocolate moelleux served with a birch syrup mousse, cocoa crumble, and dulce de leche. A perfect dessert to end your meal!


For a gourmet meal at an incredible price, check out Les 400 Coups. It will be a memorable foodie experience.
