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.
