Chef Kimberly Lallouz

Chef Kimberly started her professional career in the fashion industry yet she always had one foot in the restaurant business. Coupled with her love of cooking from a very young age & desire to please, she chose to hand in her high heels for a pair of kitchen clogs and switch industries as she knew what she was passionate about and yearned to be living it daily.

She opened her first venture in 2010 with Miss Prêt à Manger, a local product emphasized catering company in Montreal that is still alive and well, doing gourmet corporate and private catering.

Needing more space to better serve her patrons, she opened Monsieur Resto + Bar right next door (which will reopen with a new flare in 2022) followed by the catering companies Petite Miss Prêt (a non-profit division serving children in daycares with lower house hold incomes), Miss Tennis (which was the biggest restaurant at the Rogers Cup for 6 years), the MAC Restaurant (currently close after 5 years of artistic menus and collaborations- situated in Montreal’s Museum of Contemporary Art ) Birdbar (Montreal’s premier fried chicken & champagne restaurant in Griffintown with HENDEN (the speakeasy hidden behind the grow wall in the basement of Birdbar) which Kimberly has left but is still very much alive with her menu creations and vision.

Originality of the dishes, freshness of the organic produce, fair market prices combined with the love of her craft make all of her restaurants fan favorite dining in Montreal. She often brings inspiration back from her travelling chef experiences & continues to work on two cookbooks (more info to follow!)
