For a taste of Montreal's Griffintown

Formerly a working class neighbourhood, Griffintown has undergone a profound transformation over the last decade. Many restaurants have chosen to settle in this neighbourhood located between the Bonaventure highway, rue Notre Dame and rue Guy, just steps from the Lachine Canal. Here are some places to discover in this popular destination for Montrealers.

Restaurant Nora Gray

1391, rue Saint-Jacques, Montréal, QC H3C 1H2

Located away from the action, Nora Gray still manages to get noticed since its opening in 2011. This restaurant offers Italian food and a friendly atmosphere, both retro and minimalist.

Le Serpent

257, rue Prince, Montréal, QC H3C 2N4

Located in the beautiful Fonderie Darling, Le Serpent restaurant offers Italian cuisine revisited. Opened in 2014, Le Serpent is the latest project of the owners of the famous restaurants Club chasse et pêche and Le filet.

Restaurant Le Richmond

377, rue Richmond, Montréal, QC H3J 1T9

Set in a large, open, industrial space, the Richmond restaurant offers a refined cuisine inspired by that of northern Italy. The huge bar located in the middle of the restaurant helps create a unique and inviting atmosphere.

Le Boucan

1886, rue Notre-Dame O, Montréal, QC H3J 1M6

Chicken wings, poutine and ribs are just some of the dishes that appear on Le Boucan’s menu, which is inspired by the cuisine found in the Southern United States and in Montreal diners. Thanks to its vintage decor, you may feel that you're somewhere other than Griffintown!

1964 Rue Notre Dame O, Montréal, QC H3J 1M8

Care to discover Filipino cuisine? Opened in 2014, Junior offers an excellent introduction to Filipino food, serving typical dishes in a relaxed family atmosphere. Their prices are reasonable and the decor is very original!

Foxy Inc

1638, rue Notre-Dame O, Montréal, QC H3J 1M1

Opened in autumn 2015, the Foxy restaurant is a new project brought to us by the owners of the famous Olive + Gourmando restaurant in Old Montreal. Foxy offers country-style food, all of which is homemade and most of which is cooked in a wood oven.

Considered the cultural heart of the city, the Quartier des spectacles has become one of the liveliest neighbourhoods in Montreal since the redevelopment of the Place des Festivals. It has eight public spaces that host an average of 40 festivals per year. Here is a list of restaurants where you can enjoy a bite to eat before or after your outing!
With Mother’s Day coming up, it’s time to think of an appropriate way to say “thank you” for all the great things that mothers do. And what better way than to sit down for some quality time over a delectable, perhaps even decadent, brunch. The Mile End has quite a few suitable destinations for just such a celebration, and we list them here. [Image credit: iStock.com/Lesyy]
Mother's Day is fast approaching, and for many that means it’s time to invite their favourite Mom out for brunch!
