Has anyone been to Brochette.ca?

...not that I would I expect any self-respecting board member to frequent a fast-food joint built next to a collapsing garage next to a gas station outside of morbid curiosity, but you've got to hand it to this place - it has some garish, can't-miss signage around its Crescent/Rene-Levesque outpost.

I can't imagine any of their food is remotely worth a taste, though if someone would care to correct my preconceptions from personal experience, please do!

    the amount of signage seems to have increased exponentially and it looks more like a strip club than a restaurant.

    just went to their website. what a cheese fest - i love the brochette skewer scroll bar. the food pictures indicate that it is similar to all the other arab chacoal grill restaurants

      Ive been out of desperation around 2-3 a.m. They served me raw chicken so I never went back. It has potential to be ok, but the fact they served me raw chicken just killed it for me. If youre completely desperate try it out, but I dont suggest going before 2 am because there are better options out there

          ironically it's actually owned by the queue de cheval group

            Where do you find that information? I can't.

              its not something the owner would want to openly advertise, of course

                I've been told to avoid this place at night. Maybe I'll try them in the day time one day.

                  I don't know where j_do's info comes from, but the REQ says the owner is Amir Toledano.

                  Seems to have an interesting track record: http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/news/story.html?id=1d2311d9-b9e8-4461-9cf8-3c5e55e24882&k=78781

                  EDIT: The link I had put up for the REQ doesn't seem to work. You can follow this link and search for Brochette.ca after clicking the "FIND an enterprise" button.

                    Folks, we'd ask that you let this sub-thread go and keep the focus on the food. The non-chow related history of business owners and their crimes is really off-topic for this site. Thanks.

            They are opening a new outlet on Beaver Hall, a few doors down from Le Marly

            As for the food over there, i went in the few weeks after the opening, all the brochettes i tried we're pretty good, as well as their fries and salad that comes with it. But quality seems to have declined a bit over time, not much for the meat, but mainly for the sides.

            Service can be a bit long as they cook the brochettes on order. Their quarter chicken not so good, dry and pre-cooked and then re-heated on the charcoal when ordered.

            As for the new menu items, never been since they expanded their menu tenfold.
