Smoked meat is a well-known delicacy in Montreal which has remained practically unchanged since its beginning. We all know Schwartz, Reuben’s, Lester’s and Dunn’s but one of the pioneers of this specialty in Montreal is Ben’s Deli. After almost 100 years of devotion, the Kravitz family had to close their restaurant due to union conflicts, the competition getting stronger and the fight for commercial areas in downtown Montreal. The McCord Museum decided to honor the adventures and passion of the Kravitz family with this dare I say delicious exposition.

Le smoked meat est reconnu comme étant une des délicatesses montréalaises. Nous connaissons tous les Schwartz, Reuben’s, Lesters et Dunn’s de ce monde, mais un des pionniers de cette spécialité à Montréal est le restaurant Ben’s. Après près de 100 ans de dévouement, la famille Kravitz a dû fermer boutique en raison des histoires de syndicat, la compétition montante et la bataille des terrains commerciaux au centre-ville. Toutefois, le Musée McCord a décidé de rendre hommage aux aventures des Kravitz et leur histoire de passion.

Well Audrey Morisette, a High School French teacher, has done it! She opened, after two years of hard work and learning all there is to know on the retail business world, her own boutique on Saint-Laurent Boulevard called Vestibule.

Dans la vie, il faut suivre ses rêves, mais on y arrive pas toujours en claquant des doigts (malheureusement!)… ça prend souvent un peu (beaucoup) de travail. Eh bien, Audrey Morissette, une professeure de français au secondaire a réussi! Elle a ouvert après deux ans de formation et d’apprentissage sur le commerce de détail à ouvrir la boutique Vestibule, sur le boulevard Saint-Laurent.
