Meet the owner

Ontario born chef John Winter Russell has backpacked all over the country, beginning his career as a chef in Vancouver before relocating to Montreal, where he worked in restaurants like Pastaga and Van Horne.

Eventually John got the idea to open his own restaurant, an urge that grew stronger and stronger over time. After he quit his job in 2014, he had the fortune of meeting Danielle Bitton, an events management expert who fell under the spell of John's cooking. The two talked and came to an agreement: they would open their own restaurant together. And so Candide was born.

Acclaimed chef John Winter Russell – previous of Van Horne – made his comeback with an ambitious concept revolving around local, in-season, plant-driven cuisine. With a menu featuring the likes of sunchokes, black radish, wild fennel and garlic flower (don’t ask us), diners can look forward to a lesson in Quebec botany in addition to dinner!

Housed inside an old presbytery in Griffintown, Candide is one of the most unique restaurants in Montreal. Chef John Winter Russell’s rigorous philosophy of using regional and seasonal products makes Candide the perfect restaurant to discover unfamiliar (yet delicious!) Quebec products. The dishes here are elegant and sophisticated and the service unparalleled. The creative wine list by sommelière Emily Campeau is one of the best in town.
