To welcome the arrival of the summer solstice, Montreal's Le Jolifou will offer a special selection of cuisine for travellers heading out for a date night or an evening with friends. Pairing each course with fine Italian wine, chef David Ferguson has concocted light dishes perfect for summer nights in the Francophone city. Guests can reserve rooms in the Westin Montreal Hotel and savour this delectable menu, as well as enjoy the longer nights and warm summer air along the streets of downtown Montreal.
Pulling his influences from Mexico and the Southwestern region of the United States, chef David Ferguson is a unique culinary competitor in the typically European-style city of Montreal. With a playful attitude and classy decor, Ferguson has attracted young and old crowds to his trendy Le Jolifou, and keeps them returning with his mouthwatering menu. Lobster gaspacho on hot summer evenings or seared foie gras nachos to split with a friend make for the perfect appetizers, before settling on a tender and juicy Black Angus rib steak or even the colossal Blue Rodeo Surf and Turf, which is big enough to share with at least one, but better yet two people.
The summer solstice handcrafted menu will feature a pear and arugula salad and mussels to start and then the diner's choice of veal cutlets or halibut as their main-course entree. After sampling wines that complement the fare, guests can return to their downtown Montreal hotel only a few minutes away from the world-class restaurant.
