Gatto Matto


The story of

Gatto Matto

The designer Jacques Gaspo from Foodtastic (behind La Belle & La Boeuf, Souvlaki Bar, Carlos & Pepe’s, Le Blossom, the new Nickels and Bacaro Pizzeria) developped Gatto Matto over a two year period. A revolutionary and Avant-Garde Art Deco concept with a flower bar theme that is a fusion between Chicago and Italy. Using premium materials designed and manufactured in Montreal, the elements marry themselves wonderfully. Bright and vibrant colors give a WOW factor that will make you feel like in a modern Milan hotel with a girly touch. The creation of the open kitchen concept never seen before in the Montreal area (in collaboration with Hagop Hagopian, director of operations at Foodtastic and expert in kitchen design) allows you to see the best chefs in the region at work. No need to travel, we bring Europe to your table.



Discover Menu





The avant-garde and modern Italian menu offered at Gatto Matto has been developed by our talented chef, Ara Ekmekdjian. This multifaceted chef initially trained in art of classic French cuisine under Richard Bastien at Lemeac. He then turned his attention to sharpening his Italian culinary skills at Bice (now called Beatrice). His desire to master his craft later drove him to join the creative team at Le Chien Fumant, where he worked tirelessly to attain the rank of chef de cuisine. We are pleased that he’s now found a new home at Gatto Matto.
