We recently had a great meal at Maison du Nord. Our friend who recommended it, said it was in the "new china town". Is there such a thing?

    yep, search Chinatown 2.

      Downtown around St-Laurent / De La Gauchetière = Chinatown Original Flavour

      Downtown near Concordia = Chinatown2

      And, at least AFAIC, Verdun between De L'Église and Verdun metro stations = Chinatown3

        Yup, as C70 says the area around Concordia University's downtown campus has become known as Chinatown 2 (at least to us hounds!) Here are some threads to get you started:

        The New Montreal Chinatown

        You'll find a wider variety of types of Chinese food in Chinatown 2 than found in the Cantonese-heavy original Chinatown, including ultra-spicy Szechuan.

        Have fun exploring!
