This new cherry blossom Japanese restaurant and bar could be the prettiest place to eat in Montreal.
Le Blossom is the latest establishment led by Montreal restauranter Dan Pham and his partners.
The eatery is located in Montreal’s “The Village” neighbourhood and specializes in traditional Japanese handrolls, private-imported sake, contemporary Japanese dishes, and more.
Besides the food, the highlight of Le Blossom is the decor. Created by designer Guillaume Ménard of Atelier Mainor, the restaurant’s design is inspired by a Neo-Japanese décor that draws reference to the 1982 movie “Blade Runner.”
Take a seat at the 28-seat bar and enjoy a wide-variety of fresh handrolls, sashimi, udon noodles, soups and salads, and delectable tempura options created by Pham and partners (and twins) Viet and Nam Truong–owners of Geisha Box, Sachika Boutique.
Pham, the mastermind behind Kamehameha Snack-Bar and Le Red Tiger, says his passion for sake and amazing Japanese food was his inspiration behind Le Blossom.
“The inspiration behind Le Blossom grew from my desire to open a trendy yet relaxed restaurant in Montreal that would be accompanied by a premium sake list, which, until
now, I hadn’t been able to find in the city,” he said.
“As with all my other restaurants, I wanted to stay within the Asian concept. Le Blossom is the perfect formula that combines both my Asian culture and my passion for sake.”
Le Blossom will open its doors on Friday, December 8.
