Sophisticated and relaxed, one of the finest places to enjoy French gastronomy in Vancouver is most certainly Tableau Bar Bistro.
This Paris bistro-meets-New York bar-type restaurant, designed by Gianfranco Avignoni, combines elements of classic bistro with pop art accents and showcases materials such as turquoise glass tile mosaics, solid wood paneling, marble, and rich leather banquettes.
The upscale eatery features an outdoor patio and two event spaces as well as a private dining room where guests can indulge in Chef Marc-André Choquette’s French fortified menu.
Marc-André uses only seasonal, sustainably sourced ingredients which are combined with subtle flavours throughout his traditional French fare (ex: rabbit terrine, duck confit, seafood bouillabaisse).
Thanks to its elegant ambiance and casual approach to traditional French dishes, Tableau Bar Bistro—the 2014 Georgia Straight Golden Plate Readers’ Choice Awards for best bistro—clearly embodies the winning qualities of a high-end neighbourhood restaurant.
