First Jean-Georges Vongerichten, then Daniel Boulud, then Gordon Ramsay, and now Daniel Boulud again. That’s three Michelin-starred celebrity chefs that have passed over Toronto to open Canadian outposts in Vancouver and Montreal. Boulud (who made his name at  Le Cirque and Daniel, among others) announced today that he would open a new restaurant, Maison Boulud, at the Ritz-Carlton in Montreal.

The announcement comes after his two Vancouver restaurants, DB Bistro Moderne and Lumière, were shuttered after short, two-year stints (Dale MacKay, of Top Chef Canada fame, was the chef de cuisine at Lumière). At the time, Chowhound rumours emerged suggesting that the celebrated chef was in talks with Toronto’s Four Seasons Hotel. While Boulud confirmed he was “looking closely” at Toronto, there is no concrete news on that front. Maison Boulud is set to open in early 2012 and will coincide with a $150 million renovation to the Ritz-Carlton Montreal. At least we still have the bragging rights for nabbing David Chang first.
