An antiques and curios shop opened in 1975, Arthur Quentin has since expanded to offer housewares, accessories, clothing, cookware, and other decorative items. Housed in three heritage row houses, the Plateau-neighborhood store carries French tableware from Gien and Maintenon, pots from Staub and Le Creuset, and specialty crêpe pans and Moroccan tagines. One unique item is the Quebec-made vertical rotisserie—a design based on using a beer can to cook chicken. Sandstone clay pots painted with brightly colored enamels include starters for fermenting homemade vinegar. There's also a selection of gifts, like designer messenger bags, perfumed soaps, and wristwatches.
