Mike Cohen experiences the new Petros Taverna Laurier location

    In case you have not noticed, I am a huge fan of the growing Petros Taverna family of dining establishments in the Montreal area.

    Owner Ted Drainias is a man on the move. Years ago he first brought us Peter’s Cape Cod on the West Island. Then came La Trattoria on Notre Dame Street in Griffintown, where he introduced the maiden Petros right next door in May of 2015. It was such an instant success that in December 2016 he expanded with Petros Westmount at the corner of St. Catherine Street and Grosvenor.

    Mike Cohen Reviews Bâton Rouge: chicken, baby back ribs, steaks and craveable appetizers

      Let me say from the start that I have been a huge fan of the Bâton Rouge Steakhouse & Bar Restaurant chain ( since the original Carrefour Laval location opened in 1992. It was at that time a gentleman by the name of Kosta Mavrohalis created the concept. Twenty-six years later the group has grown to 29 venues in Quebec, Ontario and Nova Scotia. The 30th will debut soon in St. Hyacinthe.
