Sushi Jinjin Replaces Landmark Boulangerie Clarke in Mile End Montreal

So long sandwiches, hello maki rolls.

Prolific Montreal property owners Danny Lavy and Stephen Shiller have made good on a pledge to revamp a span of Saint-Viateur, west of Saint-Laurent. The businessmen own a bunch of buildings in the area; buildings that house the likes of Bishop & Bagg pub, its sister store Newland & Jump, and the former, soon-to-be-made-over Gracias Corazón restaurant across the street. Now Jinjin, a sushi restaurant from principal Deokjin Park, is open in the bygone and beloved Boulangerie Clarke, in a building owned by Lavy's and Shiller's company. The new sashimi and nigiri pusher has a couple of large tables, and a counter, but evinces more of a takeout vibe. (Incidentally, another new Mile End sushi restaurant, the non-Lavy-and-Shiller-affiliated Ubi Sushi, a block west, has yet to open.) Word on the street is that Lavy also has big plans for the Faubourg complex downtown—stay tuned for news of a possible food court shakeup there.

Status: Sushi Jinjin, 29 Saint-Viateur Ouest. Open weekdays for lunch and dinner, Saturday for dinner only.
