Welcome to Montreal Friday. Every Friday this summer, I will show you what’s new in Montreal, because Montreal is a fun and wonderful city to discover. Here are my two discoveries of the week. 

Do not hesitate to follow me on Twitter and Instagram for previews and as well, lets engage on Twitter with hashtag: #FRIDAYMTL

Bois & Cuir Westmount Store and Expansion 

Montreal based home furnishings retailer Bois & Cuir just opened it's third location in the hip Westmount neighbourhood, at 5014 Sherbrooke Street West. The store features a variety of products, including massive wood furniture pieces and luxurious Italian leather -- making it a viable alternative to Restoration Hardware. This store is the latest for the retailer, which is initiating a Canada-wide expansion following its existing stores on Montreal's Rue St Hubert and in Quebec City.

In October, Bois & Cuir will open another Montreal store on Atwater Avenue, in the former Harricana par Mariouche space. This winter, the retailer will open its first British Colombia location on Victoria's tourist-heavy Government Street. Locations in Toronto and Ottawa are planned for next year, and Bois & Cuir is already looking at a U.S. expansion, targeting Boston and Chicago.

The Westmount Store is well located, near popular retailers Aesop, m0851 (article to follow), IRO, UGG, Lululemon, Sarah Pacini and Want Apothecary.

Food of the Week: 'The Warehouse' Opens 3-Level Restaurant, all Food $4.95

Popular Crescent Street is now home to a hip new restaurant. On three levels and with 300 seats, featuring a surfer type decor, The Warehouse features a well-priced menu and an interior inspired by surfing. Although the food might be cheap, it's great quality and worth a visit. 

The Warehouse is run by the same owner as L’Entrepôt Mont-Royal, El Furniture Warehouse in Ottawa, Toronto, Whistler and Vancouver, as well as Le bureau de Poste in Québec City and Trois-Rivières.
