Wheels turning for new Concorde revolving restaurant

Quebec City (Quebec) 29 August, 2014 – The new owners of the revolving restaurant atop the Concorde Hotel, or Condo, or whatever they call it these days, are getting everything in order to start the wheels turning on a new restored, renovated and revamped place to eat.

The revolving facility has long been a favourite spot for restaurant goers in Quebec City and since the Hotel closed down this spring the restaurant has been under renovation.

Le Groupe Resto Plaisirs bought the rights to the restaurant and is in the process of spending over a million bucks to make it look brand new and to be ready for its grand opening in October of this year.

The final touch was to find a chef who could offer the best possible menu and who could take charge of what is going to be a very popular dining venue. The man to fit the bill is a Mr. David Forbes who has just been hired to lead the way. Mr. Forbes, 41 is already deep into the restaurant business by way of two other restaurants, Les cuisines de Cercle, on rue St. Joseph and Hôtel La Ferme in Baie St. Paul.

According to Pierre Moreau, Restos Plaisirs’ general manager, M. Forbes stood out way above any other candidate.

Two other well known chefs will be working at the restaurant with M. Forbes; Olivier Blais will be in charge of banquets and Julien Carbonelli, from Laurie Raphaël, will be the pastry chef.

M. Moreau says the new decor will be modern with an open kitchen, and designed to meet the requirements of the Quebec City clientele. The new name and gastronomical style will be unveiled within a couple of weeks.

Le Groupe Resto Plaisirs already operates several restaurants in Quebec City, most notably the Cochon Dingue chain located throughout the city.
