Native of Hyères’ in the south of France and coming from the world of maitre d’hotel and fine dinning, Gousto Bistro, her Italian restaurant in Longueuil, is the logical continuation of a long journey. Aurelie has worked for the Intercontinental Hotel and the Ritz Carlton in Montreal, where she acquired a keen sense for five-star service.
“In the restaurant, I see a lot in the room and I want to ensure high-quality the moment a client sits at the table,” Aurelie says.
“On the rare occasion that I am away, I attend to administrative tasks or spend time with our children. I give a sense of importance to people, know everyone on a first-name basis. I tend to worry about those who I haven’t seen in a while. Because Gousto Bistro has many loyal clients, I’m slowly learning their family tree, to the point of hearing stries about who built Vieux-Longueil.
For me, Gousto Bistro is an Italian culinary experience that is comforting, traditional and family-oriented. This is my passion and I wish to share it with our staff and customers.
I am not only passionate about gastronomy. I live life to the fullest and I overflow with energy! That’s good thing because at Gousto Bistro, it’s very needed!
