Apollo restaurant changes

sweettoothMTL Jul 11, 2011 10:39 AM

I know the fancier Apollo is now in the old Parchemin location, and of the old restaurants (St-Laurent), the remaining one is the one on the west side of St-Laurent. I saw driving past they are now BYO and they claim to have a new menu (well changed I guess). Anyone as more info on this, namely, what does the new menu look like and what is the price range now?

    I went to the Apollo Concept (the BYOB on St-Laurent) about two months ago. The menu changes daily, based on what's available at the market. The menu is pretty versatile, from French-inspired food to a bit Asian-fusion, but always well executed. Complex flavors in simple dishes, I would describe it. They ditched the "variations" concept and went for the classic appetizer-entrée-dessert. They also offer a 5-course tasting menu, for about $55-60 per person, if I remember well.

    I hope I answered all your questions!

        Can you explain why? It seems a bit harsh if you don't give us details as to what you hated so much.

          It's an automatic thumbs down for me when a place pre-poaches their eggs and they are still cold from the fridge when they arrive on your plate....
