          Could you please write in complete sentences? You're not making any sense?

      2. Ok, so the brick oven will be moved from the 1st floor (rez-de-chaussé) to the second floor ? weird.

        They're gonna remove the bar section ?

          It would be a shame if they removed the bar section as I love to sit at the bar and talk to the cooks (and taste stuff they give me), but if they are moving the kitchen....

          APDC requested a zoning change yesterday:

          "le second étage de l'immeuble doit être occupé exclusivement par la cuisine du restaurant pour la préparation de nourriture comprenant une table de dégustation de 8 places pour les employés;
          • adjacent au mur arrière du sous-sol de l'établissement, aménager une chambre réfrigérée pour disposer les matières résiduelles;"

          If anyone wants to get on Martin Picard's bad side, you can complain about it at the public consultation on April 2nd. And I assume that the table upstairs becomes THE place to eat in town next year.

            It sounds like they simply want to build a prep kitchen on the second floor.

              I'm wrong. They are building a second floor kitchen in order to expand the dining room. So it seems likely the counter will be done away with. Bummer!
