A colourful favourite is La Bolduc,
Or is wall art by any other name still graffiti? In any case, this rather abstract design looks to me like an artist's impression of the hefty lunch I ordered.
After consuming the whole thing, I felt very familiar with the concept of "hefty." This burger involved ground lamb (oh, that does sound barbaric! My apologies to any vegetarians out there) and goat cheese; two things I almost never eat at home so am compelled to order when confronted with them on a menu.
The restaurant is named after a colourful and extremely popular Quebecoise entertainer who made her way to widespread popularity (that is, within the confines of the province of Quebec) in the 1930's.
Mary Rose-Anna Travers, (June 4, 1894 – February 20, 1941) was a French Canadian singer and musician. She was known as Madame Bolduc or La Bolduc. During the peak of her popularity in the 1930s, she was known as the Queen of Canadian Folksingers. Bolduc is often considered to be Quebec's first singer/songwriter. Her style combined the traditional folk music of Ireland and Quebec, usually in upbeat, comedic songs.

At any rate, these two oldies but goodies had a wonderful lunch in great company,
sitting out on la terrasse chez Mme. Bolduc.
And here, for your further edification and entertainment is a little "heritage moment" from the annals of Canadian popular history.
