A troubled Saint-Henri pizzeria on Notre-Dame Ouest has finally been replaced by a second Burrito Revolucion restaurant. The Mexican-ish concept from principal Jean-Francois Naud first came to HoMa last November, and homed in on businessman Daniel Lacombe's Foyer restaurant after it became apparent that the pizzeria's days were numbered.
Burrito Revolucion's menu of burritos, burrito bowls, tacos, and quesadillas (see below) plays it pretty safe; time will tell if this is the restaurant Saint-Henri's diners need. After all, this is the area that recently rejected Henri Saint-Henri, and where even quality, casual restaurants like Tejano BBQ Burrito, Adamo, Satay Brothers, Sumac, Nozy, and taco peddlers Victor and Frida have to work tirelessly to lure new customers, and keep old ones. The landscape is about to get more crowded too, with Foiegwa, a French diner from Old Montreal's Barroco group, slated for the corner of Notre-Dame and Atwater, and El Gordo, a Mexican restaurant from the Geppeto group, expected soon on Notre-Dame and Charlevoix in Little Burgundy.
Status: Burrito Revolucion, 3532 Notre-Dame Ouest, (514) 508-3532, now open.
