Discover Nord Laboratoire culinaire, a Nordic-inspired gastronomic space in Chambly. The laboratory is a place of culinary creation open to the public, hosting guests in the dining room or on the terrace for a coffee, aperitif or meal.

It’s in the laboratory kitchen that the recipes are masterfully developed, then tested, retested and finally validated, in a waltz led by chef Raphaël Podlasiewicz and his team. Ideation, conception, trial and error: the laboratory is the source of all innovations; it is here that Nordic inspirations, alchemy of flavours and fresh local ingredients come together in outstanding dishes.

In the dining room, these dishes, skilfully crafted and carefully thought through, are offered for tasting in their prime. The customer is an integral part of the creative process. The future of each dish will be decided by their impressions. Successful dishes will then find their way onto the menus of Strøm’s North Spa restaurants, enhancing the immersive experience.

Enjoy your discovery!

Le Devoir 

“It’s an opportunity to taste culinary innovations for the first time, before they make their way into the various Strøm spas. Unsurprisingly, Nordic influences can be found as much in the design of the premises—the establishment is housed in the ancestral waterside building that the famous Fourquet Fourchette occupied for 20 years—as in the menu. For lunch, a coffee break, or a gourmet evening meal.”

Catherine Girouard and Charles-Édouard Carrier

La Presse

“A cuisine that manages to make a plate of turnips taste absolutely delicious and fresh deserves all my admiration. … It is fair to say that Chambly is lucky to have a restaurant of this calibre in its pretty village. Montrealers: don’t hesitate to make the (short) trip!”

Ève Dumas


“Innovation, well-being, flavours, Nordic inspiration, and local produce come together in every dish conceived, tested, validated, and served by chef Raphaël Podlasiewicz and his team. Healthy, nutritious, fresh, and local ingredients will be at the heart of the menus, which will evolve gently with the seasons.”

Laurence Diotte


“You’ll quickly be won over by the Nordic influences on the menu, which focuses on a selection of healthy, fresh, local ingredients, and in the design of the premises, which is consistent with Strøm Nordic Spa’s signature Scandinavian architecture.”

Alaska Rider

Journal de Montréal

“The menu changes with the seasons—comforting in winter, light in summer—and is great for sharing. If you go with a group of more than four people, don’t hesitate to order the whole menu!”

Tommy Dion

Tourisme Montérégie

“A new restaurant on the South Shore that serves as a culinary laboratory for the chef behind Strøm Nordic Spa’s menus. The café bar: a great place for a lunch break.”


“This is Nordic-inspired cuisine prepared with a maximum of local products, many of them from the region. You’ll be able to try dishes made with seasonal produce.”

Laurie Forget

Noovo moi

“The gourmet space offers a Nordic-inspired menu, just like those offered in its spas. The small dishes are finely crafted and perfect for sharing.”
