We are launching this new project, a restaurant in downtown Haileybury, the Cafe METEOR Bistro. Some people will say we are a bit crazy, but for us it is a logical next step for our business, our guests and the community. The increase in our corporate groups and our new glamping project has increased our demand for a quality restaurant that is walking distance from our historical homes. Renovations are progressing well, most of our kitchen crew is now on board and we are aiming for a June 1st opening.
Now Looking for our Servers (full & part-time)
The Café METEOR Bistro is looking for servers (full and part-time) to join our team. We are a 40-seat restaurant, which also offers take-out and catering products. All of our dishes are prepared using mostly fresh products from our local producers. During the day, the restaurant will be more of a Café and it will convert to an upscale casual Bistro for the evening.
We are located in Haileybury (Temiskaming Shores) by beautiful lake Temiskaming. We are a few hours from North Bay, Sudbury and Rouyn-Noranda and half a day from Toronto and Ottawa.
We are searching for bilingual candidates with experience as a server in a comparable restaurant. People on our team are passionate, enthusiastic, and demonstrate a high level of professionalism. We are looking for true people persons.
The Café METEOR Bistro will be opening in June 2017. Might be your chance to hop on board with a great team. Apply before April 14, 2017. Here are the details .
Meet our Chef
We are extremely pleased to announce that Christian Cocquière has accepted the position of head Chef at the Café METEOR Bistro. Trained in France and England, Christian immigrated to Canada in the early 2000s and worked in a number of Montreal restaurants and caterers including the Queen Elizabeth, Agnus Dei, Traiteur l’Excellence and the Commensal, a vegetarian restaurant. In 2004 he moved to the Outaouais region where he worked at the Signatures Cordon Bleu Paris restaurant and then as co-owner of a small inn which featured regional products. Christian arrives with a great desire to incorporate the products of our Temiskaming Ontario and Quebec regions in the Café METEOR Bistro kitchen. We are grateful that he accepted this key position on the team and welcome him and his family to our beautiful community.
About the Café METEOR Bistro
The restaurant will be named the Café METEOR Bistro after the famous steamship that navigated Lake Temiskaming for 40 years and brought pioneers on both side of the Lake .
A lot of details still have to be worked out but we know that we want to offer a healthy menu sourced by local products as much as possible. We will be working with our Chef to offer dishes that are not only delicious and healthy but are colorful and textured.
