Touring Au Petit Chavignol On East Hastings

I checked out the construction site of the new Les Amis du Fromage location and its 40 seat wine bar, Au Petit Chavignol, today over at 843/845 East Hastings.

The cheese man himself, Joe Chaput and Au Petit Chavignol general manager Annette Rawlinson gave me the tour, and designer John Shields gave me a cool virtual walk about on his laptop. The Les Amis side is huge, and should make for a fine retail store when it’s all done, but I was especially excited by the wine bar. It’s going to look great. They hope to open both at some point in February.

There are 6 comments

  1. I’m very excited for this place as it’s WAY closer to me than Les AMis is now, course that doesn’t stop me from shopping there 🙂

  2. Love the vid Andrew! I too am VERY excited about this place – it’s just what Vancouver needs, and Annette Rawlinson (three cheers!!) is just the person to lead the way.
    Thanks for keeping us all in the loop,
