Melange is a restaurant on Commercial Street, operated by a french speaking owner or Quebecois. It is next door to “the Modern Café”, operated by a husband and wife team, also originating from Quebec. Both places serve excellent lunches and dinners.
Anyways, I sat on a chair across the street in front of Artzi Stuff, to make this sketch from the people enjoying their (late) lunch on the patio of Melange. What caught my attention was the reflection of the umbrellas in the store windows; an interesting repetition of blue shapes.
I looked up what melange stands for. The french dictionary returns the word “mixing”.Perhaps it alludes to the variety of dishes offered on the menu, or a blending of flavours?
