Gradually, new businesses are opening their doors, offering experience and know-how. Seasoned entrepreneurs or young enthusiasts are the next generation to add to the mix and to our enjoyment.

The brasserie of the Mercenaires culinaires – great guys who like to eat, drink and discuss

Owners David Legault and Frédéric Samuel were business owner neighbours; one of a butcher shop and the other of a breakfast restaurant. As they both love food, beer, good wine and animated discussions, they decided to unite their forces to create a place that reflected them.

“Les Mercenaires culinaires is an urban brasserie concept,” explain the two entrepreneurs with a chuckle. “We want to disassociate ourselves from the brasseries of the ‘70s where you swigged beer while eating pork tongues! We’re aiming instead for a French-style brasserie serving a local clientele that loves food and wants to give itself a treat.”

Rack of lamb, leg of lamb, flank steak or beef tartare – all come from local producers and are prepared with real demi-glace sauces. Wind up your feast with a house-made dessert. You can have a glass of wine without ordering food, but it’s not a bar. Closes at 10 p.m. This winter, after skiing, it would be an excellent place to come and eat, drink and talk with friends.

409, rue de Saint-Jovite – 819 717-4141


ERRATUM: Last month we mistakenly reversed the numbers in the address of Comics à Roch. Our apologies. The correct address is 637 rue Labelle.
