Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

The­former La Vieille Douane Restau­rant, lo­cated in the Rock Is­land sec­tor of Stanstead just a few hun­dred feet from the Canadian Cus­toms of­fice, will be re-open­ing un­der the man­age­ment of lo­cal chef An­gel Garand and un­der a new name: An­gel in the Heart of your Kitchen at Restau­rant La Vieille Douane. The Grand Open­ing will be this Fri­day, June 5th, at 10:00 in the morn­ing, the time that will con­tinue to be the restau­rant’s open­ing hour. “We’ll have an easy open­ing. I’ll of­fer pastries and sand­wiches early in the day and we’ll serve a coun­try Bar­beque din­ner on the ter­race, be­gin­ning at 5:00 pm, with chicken, baby back ribs, grilled veg­eta­bles and sal­ads,” com­mented Ms. Garand who has worked for sev­eral years in the restau­rant and cater­ing busi­ness and plans to de­velop her own menu for the restau­rant. Lo­cal mu­si­cian Brent Shel­don will liven things up on Fri­day night, from 5 to 9, for the supper guests.

“It was a quick de­ci­sion to get in­volved in the restau­rant. It was only about a week ago that Mr. Safdie ap­proached me with the idea,” said Ms. Garand who seemed un­daunted by the chal­lenge. “I’ve been in the restau­rant busi­ness since I was six­teen and La Vieille Douane was the first restau­rant I ever worked in,” she added.

Drawing on her ex­pe­ri­ence as a caterer, be­sides of­fer­ing restau­rant ser­vices which will in­clude daily lunch spe­cials, An­gel will have pre­pared meals ready for over the counter take-out or­ders. The restau­rant will also be avail­able to rent in its en­tirety for spe­cial oc­ca­sions.

An­gel in the Heart of your Kitchen will be open Wed­nes­days to Satur­days, be­gin­ning at 10:00 am.
