Hono Izakaya / Charléne Bourgeois

Located on St. Joseph Street in Quebec City, Honō Izakaya continues the tradition of Japanese taverns, a place where food and alcoholic beverages are a pretext for having a good time with family and friends. Although the locale underwent major renovations, the transformation integrates and highlights several elements of the original historic building. Since the restaurant occupies two levels, customers are struck, on entering, by the high ceilings. A few steps inside guide you towards the bar and kitchen, creating a threshold to a more intimate space. Giving depth to the locale are the two alcoves arranged behind the bar, permitting a view into the kitchen and favoring exchanges with the kitchen staff.
