Welcome to my blog about my entrepreneurial adventures. Read my rants, raves and other Montreal-related musings as I get ready to launch a home decor and accessories boutique. Online shop and website coming soon!
I’m in love with this illustration series featured on Saveur Magazine’s website. Things like this make me appreciate the city I live in so much more! Chicago-based artist Sarah Becan illustrated her experiences and the amazing food she encountered on her recent trip to Montreal. She visited the Plateau, Le Quartier Chinois, Boulevard Saint-Laurent and many other landmarks. This piece makes me want to rediscover some of my favorite spots in the city.
Apparently Joe Beef restaurant was named after Charles McKiernan, who during the Crimean War was so good at sneaking food for his regiment, that he earned the nickname “Joe Beef”. Mind. Blown.
Check out the artist’s favorite spots from her trip—all 12 pages of them—here
