Here are 3 of our favourite local Villeray businesses:
Restaurant Le Gras Dur(1660 Rue Jarry Est)
Stefan Jacob and Annie Clavette, the owners of the Schnitzel Truck, the Bacon Truck and the Burger Truck, run this warm and unpretentious gourmet fast food eatery. Open from breakfast to dinner, they serve up an array of mouth-watering and delicious dishes that are sure to please anyone in your group. Come hungry and try one of their creative daily specials or stick with their regular menu and feast on their Touski poutine, which is traditional poutine topped with chicken schnitzel, sausage, and braised cabbage, or their Montreal-famous burgers whose patties come from a local butcher.
Boutique Articho(300 rue Villeray)
This one-of-a-kind boutique represents the essence of the Villeray neighbourhood in a nutshell. Selling only merchandise that is local and handmade, this warm, artisanal shop is run by the husband-and-wife team, Isabelle Kapsaskis and Mauro Bordet. This is an excellent place to find unique gifts from friends and family including exemplary jewelry, ceramics, clothing and crafts.
Bar Le Record(7622 Rue St-Hubert)
This charming neighbourhood bar is a relatively recent addition to the Villeray neighbourhood, opening its door in September 2016. Featuring rock and soul music from the 50s and 60s played on one of the owner’s personal collection of over 2500 vinyls, Bar Le Record is a great place to unwind alone or with friends. Sample one of their signature cocktails or scotchs and relax as this is likely to become on of your new favourite neighbourhood haunts.
