When you think Montheal, you think smoked meat, not pulled pork, but Bofinger carved itself a little niche in its native neighbourhood of N.D.G. and blew up from there, now it's a Montreal staple, it's opened 3 more locations, and started a whole movement. Delicious

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
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
