Meet the owner

Since its inception on April 2013, Invitation V on Bernard Ouest has presented itself as a vegan restaurant like no other. Owner David Boigné describes it as focusing on “restaurant” rather than “vegan”: “In my past career I travelled a lot, and in most cities I found there were vegetarian or vegan restaurants that felt like restaurants first — while ‘vegan’ was the style of food they served.”

Montreal has its fair share of vegan and vegetarian dining options, but a significantly smaller proportion of them take reservations or would present a menu that’s welcoming to non-vegetarians. “We hosted a lady’s birthday party here where all the ladies attending brought their male partners,” David recounts. “They did not look happy to be here. They sat with folded arms or suspicious faces. So we tried to engage with them, to suggest they try the onion soup to start, for example, and the burger or pizza for main course. Gradually, you saw the body language change as they genuinely enjoyed what they ate and were curious about the difference vegan made to fat content and general heath. Now the group of men return every month as part of their healthy eating effort. They drink our vegan beer and they have a good time.”
