MONTREAL, March 29 /CNW Telbec/ - After 13 years of plush seating and
elegant drapery, the Casino de Montréal's Nuances gastronomic restaurant has
now chosen to present its culinary creativity in a more contemporary setting.
The decor, staff fashions, tableware, menu and graphics signature have all
been rejuvenated in a team effort on the part of talented Québec creators who
have created a veritable "awakening of the senses." Proud of its uninterrupted
5 Diamonds CAA-AAA rating awarded since 2000 and named "Restaurant of the year
2007" by the prestigious Guide Debeur, Nuances offers a refined and inventive
cuisine based on the freshness and quality of its ingredients.
A rejuvenated sensory experience
At Nuances, an environment of vivid colours, warm, soft textures,
inspired folly and tangible modern elegance impassions the senses of sight and
touch. The restaurant's subdued acoustics, provocative aromas and delectable
tastes sharpen the other senses as well and make a visit to Nuances an
unforgettable tale of voluptuous pleasure, a real "awakening of the senses."
The marriage of these sensory pleasures and the innovative talents of our
culinary creators and sommeliers make Nuances a relaxed and stylish dining
experience where our patrons feel more invited guests than clients. Situated
on the 5th level of the Casino with a spectacular view of the city, Nuances is
a Montreal "must".
In addition to the A la carte offerings, the audaciously sublime cuisine
at Nuances can be sampled on our "Discovery" menu or on the "Awakening of the
Senses" menu which is a dining experience in 5 acts, freely composed according
to the intuition of the chef. It's a gastronomic experience destined to be a
permanent keepsake in the sensory memory of our guests.
A passionate team
For the various talents needed to successfully transform Nuances, our
restaurant team called upon the passionate minds of many artists and
craftsmen. The team is made up of Jean-Pierre Curtat, Executive Chef at the
Casino de Montréal; Olivier Rault, Nuances Chef; Thierry Andrieu, Pastry Chef;

the common effort whose results go beyond our expectations and will most
definitely please all five senses."
