Marble and mirror takes Montreal’s Tiramisu back to the exuberance of 1960s Italy

Jewel tones and layered textures set the scene

Ménard Dworkind designed this restaurant in Montreal’s Chinatown, choosing a palette of materials that evoke a bygone era of glam.

Tiramisu is located on the ground floor of the Montreal Hilton Hotel, sitting behind a 75-foot-long glass facade that opens straight onto Chinatown.

Ménard Dworkind has taken advantage of its abundance of natural light, installing chrome counters and long mirrors that make the space feel even bigger and brighter than it already is. This, paired with marble, terrazzo and wood, lend Tiramisu a vintage flavour.

The centrepiece of the Montréal restaurant is the upside-down pyramid that frames the bar, introducing a hard, futuristic edge to the space – and contrasting its plush velvet seating and sprays of greenery. At night time this adds to the warm glow inside.

Ménard Dworkind has designed the restaurant to be as Covid-proof as possible, planning circulation and ensuring diners have plenty of space between them. The forced restaurant trend pivoting to take-out gets more solid footing via the pizza counter, and a mini cafe named MISU.
