AgrikolSince the 1960s, Montréal has been home to a sizable Haitian community who have immigrated to the largest French-speaking city in the hemisphere. One of the most popular Haitian restaurants in the city is trendy Agrikol, which counts two of Arcade Fire's members as backers (including Régine Chassagne, whose parents were born in Haiti). The decor, with Haitian art and Caribbean accents, helps create the illusion that your evening out includes a short trip to a tropical island. The oxtail stew, short ribs, and fried fish are all authentic and tasty, and are best paired with a ti punch (rum, lime, and fresh-pressed sugarcane juice) or a bottle of Prestige, Haiti's national lager.
