Raegan began her culinary career in Vancouver at the Art Institute, simultaneously working at Vancouver’s fine dinning restaurant the Blue Water Café. After a year living on the West Coast, she returned to Montreal. She applied at both Pied de Cochon and Joe Beef. After accepting the job at Joe Beef, she spent 4 years working for Fred Morin and David McMillan at Joe Beef & Liverpool House.
In those four years, she met another young cook named Alexandre Cohen. The two decided to travel across Asia to find culinary inspiration. When they returned, they decided to start their own catering company. The company was fast growing and eventually led them to want their own space to showcase their food.
After some thoughtful advice from her former chef Fred Morin, Raegan and Alex set out on different path. They closed their current company and created Arthurs Nosh Bar. The restaurant was built as homage to Steinberg’s late father with a fresh twist on the Jewish food they both grew up eating and loving.
And the rest will be history!
