I'm looking to get a gift certificate for someone who lives in Montreal. The butcher shop he goes to is owned by a man that's from France. Can anyone help locate that shop or have the name of a good butcher I can talk to?? I need information in the next couple days. Thank you. Cate Miller

  1. Several butcher shops in the city are owned or run by Frenchmen. Can you at least specify the neighbourhood your friend lives or shops in?

        It's a good butcher shop but the owners are German, not French.

        In the same neighbourhood, Boucherie de Paris on Gatineau, a block and a half north of Queen Mary, is owned and operated by a Frenchman.

        Of course, there's Anjou-Québec on Laurier; the late owner was French and, to judge by their accents, most of the current butchers are, too. And if I recall correctly, the Maître-Boucher on Monkland is Québécois but has at least a couple of French butchers on staff.

        There are other French butchers on the Plateau and elsewhere, too, which is why it'd help to know where Cate's friend is located.
