What makes bistro GRACE so distinct are the blackboard specials. Not only is the blackboard a focal point to anchor the modern bistro-inspired decor, it is something that truly displays the chefs creativity using fresh local ingredients.

“When developing the concept for GRACE, I knew that I wanted a blackboard featuring market fresh dishes to round out the existing menu of modern bistro favourites. This is where I get to have a little fun with touches of the Mediterranean,” says owner and executive chef, Paulo Fraga.

Blackboard specials feature ‘of the moment’ dishes, seasonal desserts and signature cocktails. Handwritten by the chef himself, these specials are constantly updated.

“To keep things fresh and unpredictable, certain dishes may be on the board longer, while others may only be available for a day or two. It’s all about the element of surprise,” says chef Paulo.

Offering a modern take on traditional bistro cuisine, bistro GRACE is located at 18425 rue Antoine-Faucon in Pierrefonds. To find out the blackboard specials of the day, call 514 624-7223.
