BUT WHO IS VICTOIRE ?
A TRIBUTE TO THE CHARACTERS (REAL AND FICTIONAL) OF THE THE PLATEAU MONT-ROYAL
Victoire is a character imagined by Michel Tremblay, a Quebec novelist well known for his Chroniques du Plateau Mont-Royal. Victoire is a typical Plateau Mont-Royal woman who lived on Fabre Avenue with her entire family, including her son Édouard, a few steps from our restaurant. In Tremblay’s books, Victoire’s family home becomes a neighborhood hangout, where friends, family, and neighbors gather. This is the welcoming and lively atmosphere we were aiming to capture when we opened the restaurant.
