The internationally renowned chef said he was angry and exhausted. David McMillan has worked in the restaurant business for over 30 years. Before selling his shares to his partners Frédéric Morin and Allison Cunningham, Mr. McMillan was co-owner of Joe Beef restaurant, Liverpool House, Vin Papillon, Vinette, as well as McKiernan. In the past, he had said he wanted to retire from the industry at 50, an age he recently reached.

For the past few years, David McMillan has owned land in Saint-Armand, in the Eastern Townships, where he grows vegetables. The chef is also involved in the world of wine. The latter recently bought a property in Pointe-Claire, in order to be closer to his three children.

“Maybe it’s just a break,” McMillan told Montreal Gazette. Maybe I just need 36 months off. Maybe I will one day open a 12 seat restaurant on the farm. ”

In an interview with The Canadian Press in April 2020, David McMillan confided that the pandemic has eaten away a good part of his savings made over the years.

Among the highlights of his career, David McMillan hosted former President Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau at his restaurant at Liverpool House in 2017.

That same year, Mr. McMillan gave his support to Valérie Plante for the mayoral elections. The chief wanted to collaborate with the city in order to establish urban vegetable gardens to feed the poor people of the southwest of Montreal. In 2020, David McMillan, however, strongly criticized the mayoress and her party, because of the redevelopment project of rue Notre-Dame Ouest.

Joined by The Press, Mr. McMillan declined to comment on his departure.
