Soubois is known as the best Supper club in Montreal and there are a lot of people talking about it, but mostly about the décor. Soubois is a Bistro du Terroir, Bar and Nightclub, located in an underground forest at the core of Montréal's downtown area. The restaurant Soubois is a restaurant, which becomes a club. This establishment is brought to us by the mastermind behind the hugely successful Les Enfants Terribles restaurant empire, Francine Brûlé, as well as a handful of other partners, including her son, Alexandre Brosseau (of the branché bar/resto Flyjin). It is a sort of crazy, multi-level, multi-roomed, multi-colored basement space designed to look like a chalet, but a chalet owned by fashionistas who like to party.

Interestingly enough, Daly worked under Chartier-Otis at Les Enfants, but Chartier-Otis then left to become chef at the swish Balnea Spa. Though his cuisine was much acclaimed at Balnea, he wanted to return to the city. At Soubois, his role is that of consulting chef.
