Miss Wong is a Chinese Brasserie of Cinematic Proportion in Laval, Canada. The brewery is occupying a former nightclub. Miss Wong is a new Asian brasserie inspired by the urban exoticism of the Far East.
The restaurant was designed by Montréal-based studio Ménard Dworkind Architecture & design as a reflection of the oriental exuberance of mid-century Hong Kong, albeit filtered through the kitsch aesthetic of Chinese-American restaurants from the 1970s, which the architects encountered when visiting the Chinatowns of San Francisco and Vancouver. Based on a modern-fusion menu led by the Vietnamese-Montrealer chef, Miss Wong offers an immersive culinary experience of cinematic proportions.
Architects Guillaume Ménard and David Dworkind have taken advantage of the venue’s large central space to create their own nostalgic version of Hong Kong’s streets, complete with colorful neon signage, classic folding scissor gates, jade-patterned walls, and hanging lanterns.
Entering through a low ceiling vestibule where you pass through a vintage Chinese arch that frames a portrait of Miss Wong herself, the restaurant’s expansive 930 square meter space with ceilings that soar almost 7 meters in height takes your breath away with both its size and vibrancy.
