Beyond the Plate: Grumman ’78 is Good Food/Fun on Wheels

Grumman ‘78 debuted as Montreal’s first food truck in 2010 and instantly developed a fan-base with cult-like devotion.  

Owners Gaelle Cerf and Hilary McGown opened their bricks and mortar restaurant that same year in a former St-Henri garage with cuisine featuring New York-style Mexican dishes with a dash of inimitable Montreal flair.  The eclectic menu is the lovechild of that delicious mash-up. Chef Sébastien Harrison Cloutie serves up laid back, unfussy but multi-layered plates like the Papas G78, starring roasted potato, garlic, mayonnaise, Japanese parsley and cheese curds, a Taco Poblano with oyster mushroom, onion, cheese and mayo Russe and a Taco Pescado starring fried turbot taco, onion, garlic, and pineapple and parsley salad with a poblano and oyster mushroom rajas.

Ten years in the industry is like dog years: you can multiply each year by 7. Factor a pandemic into that equation and you’ll understand why Grumman ’78 is so grateful to tech innovator Lightspeed. The ability to successfully pivot during the pandemic by offering take-out and e-commerce options from Lightspeed was invaluable.
