Auberge St-Gabriel

"L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel est détenue par Marc Bolay, Garou et Guy Laliberté. A eux trois, ils ont fait de cette institution historique un haut lieu de la gastronomie québécoise, l’une des destinations les plus tendances de la vie nocturne montréalaise, et un lieu de rassemblement convivial et de bon goût pour tous les grands évènements."—Auberge St-Gabriel
"Built as a two-storey house in 1688, the edifice was converted in 1754 into North America's first inn, which, 15 years later, was granted the first liquor licence under British rule. […] Today, the auberge is owned by Marc Bolay and Quebecois rocker/ restaurateur Garou, who run it solely as a restaurant [...] an appetizer consisting of croquettes of deep-fried pig's feet meat with jumbo shrimp stole the show. Paired with al-dente asparagus spears and shaved raw asparagus salad, the pig meat was moist on the inside and crisp on the outside. The shrimp was a hulking mass of toothsome seafood, and the asparagus was so flavourful that I polished it off it first. Score!"—Lesley Chesterman, Montreal Gazette, October 31st, 2011
