Head Chef

Born and raised in Montreal, Shant is an established head chef trained at the prestigious Institut de tourisme et d'hôtellerie du Québec. A professional in the field since the age of 22, he developed his skills at eateries like Neva, Eco and the Casino.

Shant’s passion for good, honest food and pure ingredients was instilled in him by his grandfather, the biggest producer of cold cuts in Egypt, and his mother, with whom he began cooking at 8-years-old. In those marking moments in his childhood kitchen, he learned to create dishes with pride and great attention to detail.

Among his culinary specialties, Shant is a master at butchering and curing meats. Mainly inspired by French and Italian cuisine, Beatrice’s guests can get a true taste of authenticity and heritage in each of his dishes.
