West Vancouver, BC | In all the excitement that February will bring to Vancouver this year, don’t forget Valentine’s Day. Take your sweetie for an over-the-top dinner high up in the hills with a meal and a view to take your breath away. Executive Chef Wayne Martin has created a mouthwatering menu to celebrate the night in style. See below for complete menu details.

If you’re dining solo or catching up with friends over a few drinks, Fraîche’s new bar menu will hit the spot. As of Monday January 25 Fraîche’s bar opened all day from 1:30pm, accompanied by a tasty new menu which features: Kumamoto oysters, Kobe carpaccio, Dungeness crab cakes and the Daily Tartar Special. Ostrich tartar anyone?

Fraîche’s extensive cocktail and wine list is ever-evolving to compliment the cuisine and offers a variety of fresh and fabulous flavours. Try one of our Olympic-themed cocktails for inspiration – Fortius is a savory martini of muddled celery and tarragon balanced with yuzu, chartreuse and gin or cool down with the Mary Rose – an elegant martini of local, sparkling sake, lychee and lime compliments and hints of aromatic muddled rosemary.

Fraîche welcomes neighbours and guests to pull up a chair and enjoy. If drinks turn into dinner, you couldn’t be in a better place!
