St-Henri Fine Dining Darling H4C Returns From the Dead

Chef Dany Bolduc has given the Sud-Ouest spot a makeover, but will still serve refined, creative fare.

Two months after shutting its doors, St-Henri staple H4C has returned to the restaurant business.

Chef-owner Dany Bolduc announced that his restaurant, housed in a former post office by Place St-Henri, would be closed indefinitely back in April. While Bolduc hinted at some kind of return, the future was ambiguous, to say the least.

But as of this week, Bolduc is back — the restaurant occupies the same location, although it has been slightly rebranded to centre its owner, with the new name H4C Par Dany Bolduc.

According to La Presse, Bolduc has retained the same key staff (sommelier, maître d’, and sous-chef) as before, but the restaurant has had a makeover. It shrinks slightly to 36 seats (from around 50), and Nightlife notes that work has been done to make the restaurant less noisy, and more intimate.

Two tasting menus will be the only offerings in the evenings — one of five courses, another of ten, while weekend brunch service also returns. So, it’s business as usual to some extent. The food will align with what Bolduc previously offered: creative, modern dishes, with French technique (yet definitely not traditional). If the quality is what it was before, St-Henri should welcome it back with open arms.

STATUS — H4C par Dany Bolduc is open at 538 Place St-Henri from Wednesday to Saturday evenings for dinner, and Sunday brunch.
