Resto closures and reopenings

Café Cherrier on St-Denis is reopening after months of closure but Entrecôte Saint-Jean on Peel is packing it in and closing this week.

A chef at Montreal Plaza on St-Hubert created a stir this week with a video mocking the notions of cultural and culinary appropriation, then deleted it after a lot of folks got mad. This item has a link where someone reposted the video.

A restaurant called Pho King Bon has opened in Rosemère and created a different kind of stir among language purists. Surely they remember Fukyu Sushi on Côte‑des‑Neiges, or the short‑lived Pho Sho in NDG? In any case, it’s well established that “fuck” is not a swear word in Quebec.
