Les Enfants Terribles: 15 years of restoration

Either you know Terrible children By Jean Cocteau, a novel published in 1929, or you know Terrible Children by the exceptional restaurateur Francine Brulé, whose restaurants are like extensions of our homes.

The first address, which opened on Bernard Street in Outremont, celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, on the eve of Francine’s 70th birthday next year. Not only does it make the entrepreneur in me dream, but it inspires me as a mother, as a woman, and it made me sick, as they say! I’ve been loyal for 15 years.

But that doesn’t stop him from thinking about other challenges, like going to the grocery store.

Catering is a LifestyleWell, it’s not a job

Passion, a heart that works without counting the hours, and a desire to please define Francine’s style. With her very assertive and warm personality, when I ask her who her ideal client is, she answers me: someone who allows me to please her.

When I ask her how she coaches her teams, she replies: “I teach them not to think about their income, but to please themselves and success will follow. It’s hard to communicate.”
