History

In 1979, a young couple, who worked in theatre, dreamed of a nice, delicious and affordable restaurant open to everyone, all the time. They didn’t have a penny to their names but found two associates to buy a house on St. Denis in Montreal. The architect worked miracles.

Simple, brilliant, unique, accessible. L’Express opened December 19, 1980. An immediate success, a premiere, copied and imitated a thousand times since. American for the French, a Parisian bistro for New Yorkers or Bostonians. Montrealers.

At L’Express, a team of 50 people take turns every morning, every evening and every night welcoming guests just like you.

Since 30 years.
