After opening their first location in the Old Port, Émiliano Gonzalez, Jacques Coutu, Charlotte Chevalier and Adrian Becerra have decided to bring their restaurant in the Mile End for locals to enjoy. The restaurant is composed of 2 different rooms, one bar section with around 50 seats which offer a very moody feel and the other, a dinning room, in which we can enjoy an open kitchen experience giving the opportunity to clients to observe chef Jacques Coutu.

Everything we got to try was delicious! Our favorites and definitely a must when you go is the Esquites & the Tinga de Pollo Taco! Both dishes that you can get at any restaurant but at La Catrina they give it an original twist making it worth the trip!

Safe Travels hehe & Bon Appétit!
