It's been over three years since two members of famed band Arcade Fire - Régine Chassagne and Win Butler - opened a restaurant in Montreal's Village. Working with Toronto restaurateur Jen Agg and her partner Roland Jean, Agrikol quickly became a go-to for Haitian food and rum-laden cocktails, and then even more of a hub when next-door bar Ti-Agrikol opened.
"The power of one is above all things the power to believe in yourself, often well beyond any latent ability you may have previously demonstrated. The mind is the athlete, the body is simply the means it uses to run faster or longer, jump higher, shoot straighter, kick better, swim harder, hit further, or box better."
C'est la volonté de mettre en avant la culture haïtienne qui a poussé Régine Chassagne et Win Butler à ouvrir leur restaurant haïtien, Agrikol, avec le soutien du chef Paul Toussaint en cuisine. Une mission humanitaire qui passe par la bouffe, le rhum et la musique.
