The southwestern neighbourhood of Saint-Henri continues to see a culinary explosion. Most of the neighbourhood’s options are still peppered on the main strip of Notre-Dame West, close by to Place Saint-Henri metro station, but a walk a little farther west can yield equally delicious finds (Bernice, for one). The restaurants here vary from upscale affairs (Tuck Shop, for instance) to faster options (Adamo, Tejano BBQ, etc.) one can carry down to the scenic Lachine Canal with a six-pack, weather permitting. And that’s to say nothing of options for dessert, which with Rustique, Léché, and Dalla Rossa are plenty in the area.
Don’t confuse the boundaries of Saint-Henri with that of Little Burgundy, located east of Atwater Avenue; it’s beyond that point one will find the likes of Joe Beef and Vin Papillon — formidable destinations, but not part of the neighbourhood.Read More
