Historic restaurant opens airport outlet at Montréal–Trudeau

A flavour of old Montréal has come to Montréal-Trudeau with the opening of an airport version of the city's historic L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel restaurant.

Built in 1688 in Old Montréal and the first operational inn in North America, the airport claims that L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel is a true legend that has made itself one of the trendiest dining and event spots in a city internationally renowned for its food and nightlife.

Global restaurateur HMSHost, Aéroports de Montréal (ADM), and L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel representatives celebrated the first airport location of this restaurant renowned for its Quebec cuisine with a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration.

“We are very happy to welcome L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel to Montréal–Trudeau,” enthuses James Cherry, ADM's president and chief executive officer.

“This restaurant, part of our new commercial area, in the recently expanded international jetty, will provide our passengers with distinctive cuisine and attentive service. L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel illustrates perfectly what makes Montréal such a unique culinary destination.”

Located in the terminal’s international jetty, L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel offers an inviting and open layout with dedicated restaurant, lounge, and bistro bar areas.

Echoing the feeling of dining at the L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel in Old Montréal, travellers will find a modern, warm, and distinguished ambiance to sit back and relax before their travels.

Stained glass in L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel’s signature red brightens the space, along with floor-to-ceiling windows perfect for plane-watching while dining on dishes that have made the reputation of L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel as one of the most famous Montréal restaurants.

“We are thankful to partner with Aéroports de Montréal and renowned L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel to offer Montréal–Trudeau travellers a true taste of the exquisite cuisine that represents Quebec,” says HMSHost's vice president of business development, Stephen Douglas.

“The addition of L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel to Montréal–Trudeau illustrates the local area’s fine dining to the thousands of international travellers passing through the airport each day.”

This new gourmet stopover will enhance the brand’s visibility, according to co-owner, Marc Bolay.

“Our Old Montréal establishment is already a top destination for tourists visiting the city. Now with a presence at Montréal–Trudeau, we will leave them with a lasting impression as they are able to enjoy the Saint-Gabriel experience right up until their departure," says Bolay.
