Le Bremner Is Closing Its Doors In Old Montreal

Chuck Hughes' Le Bremner restaurant in Old Montreal is closing the doors of its current location after sustaining water damage due to a fire, according to a June 7 Instagram post.

The post says Le Bremner suffered water damage 15 months ago and that repairs on the building are still incomplete, citing conflicts with the landlord of the Rue Saint-Paul eatery.

"The endless parade of lawyers and conflicts with the landlord leaves us with no other choice but to leave the building," the post reads.

"It’s with heavy hearts but incredible memories that we’re moving on to greener pastures. So much love and thanks to our clients, staff, friends and family for all the support over the last decade."

Whether or not it's the end of the road for Le Bremner remains to be seen. The post asks patrons to "Stay tuned" and says the restaurant is "eager to share the next part of our journey with all of you."

Either way, Hughes' gastronomic influence in Old Montreal remains intact with Le Garde Manger, which reopens on June 10.
