MONTREAL, June 19, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Just a few weeks after the bakery
café Mamie Clafoutis was opened on the avenue Pointe-Nord, the Proment
Corporation is delighted to announce the forthcoming opening of a
second Les Enfants Terribles restaurant, just a few metres away.
Located next to a large riverside park, Les Enfants Terribles will
feature an expansive terrace offering clients views of both the Saint
Lawrence river and downtown Montreal.
"We knew that there are very few places in Montreal where you can eat on
the waterfront. So, when we drew up the plans for Pointe-Nord, we made
sure to reserve a prime spot by the river for the neighbourhood
restaurant, explained Ilan Gewurz, Executive Vice-President of the Proment
Corporation, the promoter of the ecological neighbourhood located just
a few minutes from downtown Montreal. With such a magnificent setting, we needed a top-class restaurant. Les
Enfants Terribles has earned a reputation for a welcoming atmosphere in
Outremont and original feel-good food,, and we are looking forward to offering this concept to Pointe-Nord."
"The Pointe-Nord neighbourhood is a remarkable place in Montreal, and we
have been truly inspired by the possibilities it offers, added Francine Brûlé, restaurant manager and owner of the Brasserie
Les Enfants Terribles, during a cocktail event that brought together
around a hundred guests for the unveiling. We are happy to partner with Proment Corporation, because we share the
same passion for neighbourhood life in all its forms. We want Les
Enfants Terribles to become a popular destination for Montrealers and a
second home for local residents."
During the event, Mr. Gewurz also unveiled Proment Corporation's vision
for the commercial development of Pointe-Nord.
"We have been careful to choose stores and restaurants that help the
neighbourhood develop a high quality offer that is both varied and
exclusive, he explained. Mamie Clafoutis and les Enfants Terribles embody perfectly the spirit
we want to nurture in this fledgling community."
Corporation Proment was also proud to remind guests that Mamie Clafoutis
has just been designated a prime local destination by legendary
publisher National Geographic in its new travel app A taste of Montreal.
Certified as a LEED ND Gold neighbourhood thanks to its compliance with
numerous environmental standards, Pointe-Nord (www.pointenord.com) is already inhabited by residents of ZUNI, a building with 160 condos
and 12 townhouses. Evolo 1, the neighbourhood's first 30-storey
residential tower is now 95% sold and construction is well under way.
It will welcome its first owners this fall (www.evolo.ca). More than 40% of the condos in Evolo 2, officially launched in
November 2011, have already found owners, and 60% of units in the Evolo
Pavilion, the neighbourhood's first medium-sized riverside building,
have now been sold. Work has already started on the Gewurz-Remer
commemorative park, and the Esplanade de la Pointe-Nord, the first of
three community parks, is also currently under construction on the
waterfront at the end of Pointe-Nord Avenue. It is expected to be ready
later this year.
