A leader in culinary training in Quebec, the Restaurant de l'ITHQ is a top learning environment for students who are finishing the ITHQ’s culinary and restaurant service programs. Our team of experienced and creative chefs welcomes these students and their instructors for the practical aspect of their training.
Under the direction of Jonathan Lapierre-Réhayem, the kitchen brigade consists of head chef Carl Jobin along with Issiaka Barry, Marie-Claude Morin, David Caron, Patricia Marcotte, Karine Beauchamp and pastry chef Éric Champagne.
A graduate of the ITHQ’s Advanced Culinary Arts program in 2008, Chef Lapierre-Réhayem honed his expertise in Japan, France and China before working in the kitchens of many renowned Montreal restaurants such as Brontë, XO Le Restaurant (Hotel Le St-James), Au Cinquième Péché, La Montée de Lait and Le Laloux.
A young chef who has trained alongside Pierre Gagnaire, Edouard Loubet, Joe Mercuri and Martin Juneau, Jonathan Lapierre-Réhayem holds an unconditional love for local, seasonal, eco-friendly, small farm, and craft products.
Carl Jobin, a 2002 graduate of ITHQ’S French Cuisine program, has worked in various restaurants, namely Les Incorruptibles, F Bar, Bistrot La Fabrique, and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at the Montreal Casino.
