News from Scout supporter Le Gavroche

Vancouver, BC | In celebration of British Columbia’s spot prawn season, Le Gavroche is bringing together coastal crustaceans from the both sides of the country in a special menu that pairs Atlantic lobster with B.C. spot prawns.

For a mere $35, guests can enjoy a three-course meal (available for both lunch and dinner), prepared by Executive Chef Robert Guest, that showcases the delicious decapods in classic French preparations with avant-garde twists.

And because a meal at Le Gavroche wouldn’t be complete without fine wines, guests can treat themselves to expert wine pairings from proprietor Manny Ferreira for an additional $25.

Reservations can be made on OpenTable, or by calling the restaurant at 604.685.3924. Full menu after the jump…

Le Gavroche is one of Vancouver’s longest standing fine-dining establishments, offering classical French cuisine in a relaxed and intimate atmosphere.

Opened in 1978, the setting of Le Gavroche has charmed Vancouverites and travelers alike and has garnered international attention as one of Vancouver’s most romantic dinner settings. The gently refurbished Victorian house (circa 1910’s) features views of the Coastal Mountains and Coal Harbour from the upstairs terrace, a cozy fireplace for cold winter evenings and a private reception room that can accommodate up to 28 guests.

Now owned by Manuel Ferreira, Le Gavroche continues the traditions it began in 1978: French cuisine executed perfectly. Adopting classic philosophies of utilizing the freshest of local ingredients combined with imported products to complete classical recipes, Ferreira goes back to his European roots and memories from a childhood growing up in Portugal and then France.

Ferreira also brings to Le Gavroche a passion for fine wines. The cellar boasts an inventory of over 35,000 bottles from around the world, with a distinct focus on the regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy. Le Gavroche offers wine selections to meet all palates and budget requirements, from a wide range of half-bottle listings to cellar selections of vintage labels. Recognized in Wine Spectator for eight years, Le Gavroche is a well-known Vancouver jewel for exclusive listings and Ferreira’s expert wine pairings.
