ABOUT

Junichi Ikematsu, Juni to his friends, was born in Kyoto, Japan in 1965. As a child, his mother's kitchen was Juni's favourite room at home. She was an excellent cook and the young Juni heartily enjoyed her cuisine. They made an ideal duo!

He began his career very early by working in a restaurant as a dishwasher in order to watch the masters at their craft. He soon found his way into the kitchen brigade at the highly regarded Manyoken with its long, enviable history of serving both classic French and traditional Japanese cuisine. A detour via Kobe City immersed him in a highly creative milieu where he was exposed to the latest, newest culinary innovations. He was well and truly hooked.

Now, Juni is imbued with the assurance, experience, enthusiasm and resources to live every chef's dream; to open his own restaurant; with his own name which. Here is another significant step in a career which began in his native Japan and now flourishes in his love affair with this province. One entire wall of the restaurant recalls the stillness and beauty of a Quebec forest. It is tastefully complimented by natural woods, fur, and hand crafted pottery.
