Griffintown’s HVOR announced their rebranding with a new kitchen team as well as a new “À la Carte” menu.

Out with the old and in with the new, you’ll still find the same beautiful Scandinavian decor but you can now pick the dishes you would like to eat from the menu. In the kitchen, it is now a join effort between some new faces and the veteran HVOR team.
