“It is the site of countless dates, business meetings, celebrations, and friendly gatherings for so many people, and has always been one of my favourite restaurants. It seems like everyone has a special memory from Le Sélect. So, when the opportunity arose to re-kindle the amazing spirit that its founders cultivated over its nearly 50-year history, I knew it was a rare opportunity.”

In terms of its interior, the restaurant will still have its classic zinc bar, art deco fixtures, mosaic floors, and vintage posters.

As for its menu, Corporate Executive Chef Ted Corrado and Head Chef Zachary Barnes lead the culinary team and will introduce new items for the public to enjoy.

Besides the new additions, it will keep some of the original menu items like escargots de Bourgogne, coquielle st-jacques, cassoulet, moules frites and truite meunière.

To drink, it will feature an extensive wine list with over 1,200 bottles to enjoy.

Le Sélect Bistro will open for lunch from 11 am on weekdays and 5 pm for dinner. Expect weekend brunches starting at 11 am on the weekends.

If you never had the chance to try the legendary restaurant, now you do.
