Brit & Chips hits 5 years old
Brit & Chips, the award-winning Montreal restaurant located on Cote des Neiges Road that gives Montrealers a taste of Britain and its most famous food staple – fish & chips – marked its 5th anniversary earlier this week with a special anniversary event, in which guests got the chance to enjoy their deep fried pieces of battered cod and English-style chips served in cone-shaped newspaper wrappings, as well as the restaurant’s newly introduced in-house signature tartar sauce (which is made and bottled in Quebec using all-Canadian ingredients), and its own brand of British-style bitter beer called Bishop Special Bitter, which is made in Canada with ingredients imported directly from England, and is now available on tap and in bottles.
As well, Brit & Chips used this occasion to mark a special distinction that it recently received. It became the only independent restaurant in Canada to achieve certification from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). What this means is that all the cod, haddock, salmon and sole that the restaurant serves its customers are now MSC certified, and these types of seafood can now be traced to well-managed, environmentally responsible and sustainable fisheries that are committed to safeguarding oceans for the future. Brit & Chips joins the more than 3000 seafood supply chain organizations around the world, including 50 fish & chip restaurants in the UK, who hold this MSC certification.
