Finding the Balance Between Historic and Modern at Bistro L’Orygine

Finding the Balance Between Historic and Modern at Bistro L’Orygine

 

It’s more important than ever to help support your local businesses and restaurants. We're all looking forward to when we can dine out again but until then, choosing to support a local restaurant when possible will help them operate during hard times like these. In addition to new take out options for your favorite comfort food, some businesses are even adapting menus for upcoming holidays. One of the Polycor team's favorite spots to join together and break bread when visiting headquarters in Quebec City is Bistro L’Orygine and (if we have room) Kerrmess, its decadent dessert shop next door. Like other local establishments across the country, they too are offering take home options and have even created a take out Easter menu helping people feel a sense of comfort during the holiday. Given the rapidly changing pace of everything, check out their Facebook page to get the most up-to-date info.

Bistro L’Orygine is a stone’s throw from Place Royale in Old Quebec City, a UNESCO protected historic neighborhood, so it makes sense that there would be an element of heritage at this very modern eatery. The bistro is part of Groupe la Tanière, a well-known restaurant group in Quebec that has respect for nature and authenticity baked into its culinary philosophy, as well as into its ideas of decor. When the group opened this restaurant, they focused on local talent, using Quebec craftsmen for the design and local suppliers for their menu of creative organic dishes.

The area around the north side was even sealed off after fears that the arch’s Italian Carrara marble exterior would fall on people below. The arch restoration team turned to hard-wearing Polycor BETHEL WHITEⓇ granite to replace the crumbling Carrara marble exterior and restore the arch to a place of pride.

Take a Walking Tour of the Windy City’s Architectural Wonders

Take a Walking Tour of the Windy City’s Architectural Wonders

 

An architecture tour of Chicago is on every visitor’s must-do list. It’s not surprising, given the city’s collection of incredible buildings. In fact, Chicago claims to have invented the skyscraper. Any Windy City architecture tour allows visitors to marvel at the feats of engineering and architecture that span styles from turn-of-the-century to modernism. Our architecture tour, however, homes in on the stones that helped build these great buildings, and helped to make Chicago the Paris of the Prairies.
