Meet the owner

Jeremy Passat and his partner Mathieu Dechezelle opened the Kitchenette on November 13, 2015. "We were living in Saint-Barthes, in the Caribbean and wanted to open our own restaurant," says Jeremy. Initially, the duo looked everywhere and even considered opening in Australia.

"All we knew is that we wanted a restaurant with an open kitchen in an open and pleasant environment. I have a friend who already lived here and was always raving about the charms of Montreal. We considered several locations," recalls the restaurateur.

After weeks of research, Mathieu and Jeremy finally narrowed their sights on a location on René-Lévesque Boulevard, opposite the Radio-Canada Tower. They fell in love with the restaurant's many windows, the string of eccentric columns and above all, the massive counter overlooking the work space that was completely clear and open.

Great Potential, Not at the Top

Kitchenette is in the Village on Rene Levesque East, well below where all the action takes place, so not many people know it exists. You can also easily miss it with its inconspicuous entrance and signs. The décor is simple yet modern with wood floors and a couple of lounge chairs on one side. Kitchenette's menu is certainly very inviting: Southern inspired with French influence. It's like they combined French finesse with Southern soul. The menu is seasonal so it does change all the time, but they have some items that have stuck around for a while: pulled beef taco, flat iron streak, braised short ribs, and blackened fish have become staples We always thought the service at Kitchenette could use a little improvement. The waiting staff is definitely more French than Southern (as opposed to the aforementioned Icehouse); you don't feel the welcoming hospitality as you walk in. We've been here a few times and on more than one occasion our waiter seemed to either be distraught or have something else on his mind. When we think of Montreal's trendy “market-fresh” cuisine scene, we mostly think of French-inspired restaurants. Kitchenette comes up as a breath of fresh air in comparison, with its Southern influence. And even though we want to try every item on the menu, our experience thus far never got to that “wow” level.

Excellent service, portion trop petite

Nous avions entendu parler en bien de cette cuisine ouverte. Le service fût excellent, la carte des vins très intéressante et la qualité de la nourriture en ligne avec ce qu'on s'attend de e type de restaurants. Par contre, on atteint un niveau creux en terme de quantité de nourriture. Après avoir mangé 3 entrées, 1 plat principal et un dessert, j'étais prêt à aller manger une pizza au coin de la rue. À 280$ pour notre couple, on aurait aimé être rassassié. Dommage.

Nous aimerions vous informer qu'il y a eu un changement d'administration depuis septembre 2013. Les photos et les commentaires présents sur ce site ne sont plus représentatifs de la qualité qu'offre le restaurant actuellement.
