Featured on Canada’s Top 100 Restaurant List, Maison Publique (Public House) is a neighbourhood gastropub restaurant nestled in Montreal’s Plateau.
Drawing on the best local and seasonal ingredients across the country and using internationally inspired techniques, Maison Publique is known for their exciting, dynamic dishes that are pure, wholesome, and transformed as little as possible – a rarity in the country’s food scene when the gastropub first opened in 2012.
Canada’s celebrated Chef Derek Dammann brings to Maison Publique his experience in fine dining and culinary artistry, with the objective to rediscover, update, and legitimize traditional British cooking within Canadian food.
Bringing his vision of opening a restaurant in the style of the corner neighbourhood English pub into fruition, Maison Publique is an English cuisine gastro-pub, serving locally sourced, traditional Canadian European fare that is meant to be shared.
This dark wood, old-school pub is adorned with many Québécois flourishes and an ornately framed chalkboard that lists Chef Derek’s constantly evolving menu, featuring hearty flesh and root dishes, elevated brunch classics, natural wines, and unassuming cocktails.
