Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

Casual dining in a cosy atmosphere. We spice and marinate our ribs and chicken for 24 hours then slow cook for 3 hours until the ribs are fall off the bone tender and the chicken is crispy on the outside and super juicy on the inside!
