Starting through the East side, Little Burgundy, we’ll explore some of the trendy restaurants and boutiques.
Further on, crossing Atwater, we’ll welcome you to St-Henri. Visually, you’ll notice St-Henri’s outline of raw concrete, graffiti, boarded windows and the eclectic mix of habitants. Walking down the street, you’ll notice hints of what this district has been and what it’s becoming. Right now, the neighborhood is the ideal spot for young entrepreneurs looking for a curious audience. We can certainly consider this area to be Montreal’s cradle for culinary innovation.
