This is a must go! L’Abbatoir.
Located in Gastown right in the midst of the action…it’s the old Irish Heather, re-done beautifully! It’s very modern French cuisine, but delicious and great service.
I enjoyed the Chicken salad with foe gras mayo and crisps – different but very tasty, beet soup w crème fraîche and meatballs (this is not a typo, yes meatballs), flank steak with sweetbread and Scallop and ox tail dumplings with ox aus jus and beach mushrooms (my personal favorite).
The wine and beer list is good and creative and the prices are moderate to high. The ambiance here creates a great dinner companion.
