Kozu: new Asian brasserie in Plateau Mont-Royal

Kozu Asian brasserie

Recently opened in the heart of Plateau Mont-Royal, Kozu is an Asian inspired brasserie located on Rachel East. This 2500 square foot venue has been designed by the young talented Amlyne Phillips (Kampai Garden, Jatoba, Mayfair) based of chic Scandinavian chalet. The design features noble materials such as marble bar, as well as custom lighting and wallpaper.

The restaurant offers a Chinese and Japanese inspired menu elaborated by Chef Olivier Vigneault (Jatoba) who proposes a unique foodie experience. The sharing style menu showcases modern techniques and traditional flavors from Asian cuisine. Moreover, almost 50% of the menu is vegan and gluten free: Gao Choi dumplings, grilled Maitake mushrooms, roasted cauliflower and much more.

Montreal’s leading mixologists Lawrence Picard has created an exotic cocktail list using Asian plants such as wasabi, turmeric and Sichuan pepper. During the media opening night, we were invited to taste the Emperor Mule cocktail made of Hennessy, sake, lime, ginger, coriander and kaffir lime leaves….delicious!

We are extremely proud of the beautiful melting pot of all the different talents involved from the chef, design, management and creative direction (…)” said young entrepreneur PJ Goupil (A5 Hospitality).
