Joseph Barabé Restaurant in the Point
Since food seems to be a favorite subject of VC members, I thought this eating place in the Point might be of interest for those familiar with the area.
The Jos BarabÃ© Restaurant situated at 1170 Ropery Street, a short street east of Charlevoix, near Magnan's, seems to be an institution in Point St Charles although I never heard of them. Enclosed are a 3 photos from a booklet dated year 1998 from the SHGV archives.Has anybody heard of this restaurant wich had its heyday during the time Northern Electric had 12,000 employees and Belding Corticelli, Redpath Sugar, Sherwin Williams were in operation. (Incidentally, Scotty Bowman worked as a salesman for Sherwin Williams before his involvement with the Canadiens in the 50s. The Forum was a short walking distance from Sherwin)).
