The wine list (...) remains an attraction of its own, both for the quality of its selections (...) and its deals.
Nobody understands customer service quite like L’Express. And (...) nobody does it better.
On y va pour manger des plats qui traversent le temps (...) sans jamais prendre une ride.
Since 1980, L’express, the dream of theatre-lovers Colette Brossoit and Pierre Villeneuve, brought to life by architect Luc Laporte, remains a refuge to the artists and businesspeople who long ago recognized its utility as a place for gathering or solitary reflection. Servers still glide among its tables with a shared sense of purpose: to preserve the founder’s insistence on quality and professionalism.
Since 1980, First assembled by Chef Joël Chapoulie, the menu is an updated repertory of the classics of French bistro cuisine, along with daily specials of a similar tradition. But what’s truly outstanding is the consistent quality of everything that leaves our kitchen, now overseen by Chef Jean-François Vachon and his team. Preparation is flawless and presentation elegant, whether you order a simple steak frites, a risotto, or grilled salmon. We take extraordinary pride in all that we do.
Seated in our dining room, it’s comforting to know that over 11,000 bottles are tucked away beneath your feet, a cellar tended for decades by Mario Brossoit who’s learned but one thing certain over the years: that wines are as unique as those who drink them. But l’Express employs no sommelier. Our serveurs are well schooled in the art of careful listening to ensure a correct pairing of wine and client.
