Wency Leung: Trudeau, Obama Visit A ‘Career Highlight’ For Montreal Restaurant Owner

Celebrated Montreal chef and restaurant owner David McMillan has fed many a high-profile celebrity. But a visit from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former U.S. president Barack Obama on Tuesday evening will stand out in his memory for years to come. The duo’s dinner at Liverpool House was well-documented on social media, attracting large crowds and calling for heavy security. As McMillan, co-owner of Montreal’s Joe Beef and Liverpool House restaurants and Le Vin Papillon wine bar, told The Globe and Mail, the night will go down in his books as a “career highlight.”

How would you describe the atmosphere when they were there? It was definitely charged. People love Justin already, and people love Barack Obama. So people were really happy to see him. The crowd amassed outside the restaurant. The word got out.  What did you and your team do after the service was finished? I think Obama is an old hat at this and he knows people want pictures and so he called pictures right away. He said, “Okay, picture time!” He wanted to take pictures with the guys in the kitchen. He wanted to take pictures with the wait staff. He wanted to take pictures with Justin’s crew. He got a picture with my daughter, which was really neat. He asked my daughter about school, and how she was doing, which was really, really great.

A Date Night Standing Ovation

Emily Heil: The Obamas’ Date Night Ends At Masseria With A Standing Ovation From Diners

Hey, isn’t that … President Barack and Michelle Obama, on what looked like a date-night dinner on Saturday at Italian hotspot Masseria? A fellow diner tells us that most of the patrons tried to be cool and not ogle at the former first couple, who we’re told left their menu in the chef’s hands and dined on “a lot of pasta,” as well as a dry-aged steak with a red wine sauce, plus a bottle of vino.

The meal ended with something sweeter than dessert, though: When the Obamas stood to leave, a hush fell over the dining room before diners broke into applause and gave the couple a standing ovation. Chef Nicholas Steffanelli says the restaurant doesn’t usually talk about its guests, but called the moment “really special.”
