Bar-starved Villeray punters would have settled for just about any corner tavern but Huis Clos (as in Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit) has the neighbourhood abuzz. The first Yelp review is in, despite the fact that the bar's "official" open is September 4, and the very premature word is positive.
Risa D. writes that "Huis Clos is most definitely welcome. It's a little on the edge of fancy for my taste, but with a nice selection of cocktails around the $10 range I am not mad at them. The Mojito and Ceasar were classic and strong, and the $22 charcuterie sharing plate was actually big and hearty and plenty for two people, with neat tastes like the pickled egg and vegetables, and the beet mustard."
