Le Serpent

The Serpent, the Darling Foundry's restaurant

The Darling Foundry’s restaurant, le Serpent, opened its doors on the 2013's new year eve for the great enjoyment of all our visitors. Its name has been borrowed from that of the old foundry, at the time when it was crowned by a huge depollution pipe.  No longer functional today, this industrial artefact is still very present in the building’s architecture and the neighbourhood’s urban landscape.

By investing in the Darling Foundry, culinary entrepreneurs Hubert Marsolais and Claude Pelletier have thrown their lot with a very artsy spot where their talent will have the opportunity to unfold in a high-level creative context. 

Founders of the Club Chasse et Pêche and Le Filet restaurants, Le Serpent offers a contemporary, affordable menu with Italian accents, a strong personality and a singular, high-quality wine list. Le Serpent's team of associates is ably rounded out by chef Michele Mercuri and sommelier Philippe Boisvert.

Le Serpent is also a collector, integrating major works of contemporary art into the restaurant space in dialogue with the Darling Foundry.

Designed by architect Annie Lebel of atelier in situ in collaboration with Hubert Marsolais, Le Serpent sublimates the industrial qualities of the space, with ceiling heights of over 5.5 m, large windows and a concrete shell. Contemporary fittings contrast with the building's raw, uncluttered appearance, offering seating for around 80 and a bar around which a dozen people can be welcomed. The Serpent is open in the evening from Tuesday to Saturday. As the exclusive caterer for Darling Foundry events, a kitchen has been set up on two mezzanine floors to serve both the restaurant's clientele and Darling Foundry guests.
