Laurent Turcot, history professor at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivière, holds the Canadian research Chair in the history of leisure. Well-known as one of the most talented communicators of his generation, he regularly intervenes in the great medias, such as TVA, Radio-Canada and Télé-Québec, in an effort to insure the widespread transmission of history. His insatiable curiosity, vast knowledge of history, ability to synthesize and good sense of humor makes him a key reference in the field today. He is the author of Sports et Loisirs, une histoire des origines à nos jours (Gallimard, 2016), Vivre et survivre à Montréal au 21e siècle, with Stéphanie Neveu, (Hamac, 2016) and Promenade dans le passé de Montréal, with Dinu Bumbaru, (Éditions La Presse, 2017).

Luncheonette Mange Tes Légumes !

The luncheonette’s menu features produce of the land cooked with the same care used by the great Italian, Indian and Mediterranean cultures that have mastered the vegetarian culinary art for centuries.

At the foot of the Place Ville Marie Observatory, we raise our glasses to sandwiches and salads brimming with flavours, as well as a variety of snacks, fresh juices and coffees from « Brûlerie FARO » skillfully prepared by our baristas.
