Casual and fine dining blend perfectly at one of Vancouver’s top restaurants.
Pidgin, located in über hip Gastown, hits the right balance by offering a cuisine that is both delicate and approachable, in a space that is chic yet comfortable. (Please click on photo to enlarge and see slideshow).
Pidgin’s design is–much like each dish that leaves the kitchen–disparate and well-balanced. Ste. Marie Art & Design’s Craig Stanghetta conceived the interior design using contrasting elements such as inverted subway tiles, curated ephemera, and contemporary lighting which creates a minimally stylish and functional layout.
Chef Makoto Ono (formerly of West restaurant) pleases the palate with deceptively simple staples skewed and polished with a refined Asian elegance (try the beef brisket, miso gorgonzola crust, and beets, or the vadouvan spiced lamb belly, smoky eggplant purée, and eggplant mostarda).
A sophisticated yet simple cuisine, Pidgin’s menu takes you on a culinary adventure that is both exotic and familiar. Pidgin’s philosophy is to create dishes that are rarely predictable, never overwrought and fussy, always thoughtful, cared for, and prepared with the utmost integrity.
It’s not hard to see why Pidgin was voted one of Canada’s top new restaurants in 2013 (enRoute Magazine). This stylish locale is an eatery where your dining experience will leave you wanting to come back again and again.
