MONTRÉAL, April 28, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Tourisme Montréal is very pleased to extend a warm welcome to internationally-renowned chef Joël Robuchon, who will be soon opening a restaurant in Montréal. After Paris (opened in 2003), Las Vegas, London, Hong Kong, Taipei and Singapore, Montréal will be the next city to boast the arrival of L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon at the Casino de Montréal in spring 2016.
"Montréal's culinary reputation is receiving growing attention internationally, and the arrival of this highly-rated chef will fuel the fire, so to speak, adding to our fair city's positioning as a choice destination for gourmets," said Yves Lalumière, President and General Manager of Tourisme Montréal.
Over the past few years, Tourisme Montréal has developed a range of proactive initiatives to rally gourmets and restaurant services around efforts to promote this tourism sector. This has indeed become a priority for us. Tourisme Montréal commends the alliance established between Joël Robuchon and the Casino de Montréal. Montréal will be able to count on this new ambassador to add to its already extensive savoir-faire in fine dining.
