The GOODS from Tableau Bar Bistro
Vancouver, BC | Tableau Bar Bistro’s new, revitalized menu features classic French dishes that would be at home in any Parisian bistro. Locally-sourced ingredients continue to shine in Chef Garett Blundell’s Hors D’Oeuvres, Salades, Plats Principaux, and Plats Du Jour. To complement the new menu, beverage director JS Dupuis has refreshed the drinks list with a tighter focus on European wines and beers. An updated Happy Hour with new food and beverage features will have groups toasting “À ta santé!” any day of the week.
Plats Principaux include classic Parisian bistro fare like Duck Breast à L’Orange, a crispy-skinned Yarrow Meadows duck breast served medium-rare, accompanied by pomme dauphine and citrus marmalade, and Suprême de Poulet ‘Grand Mère’ a juicy free-range Farmcrest chicken breast sautéed with bacon and mushrooms and plated on creamy pomme purée. Chef Garett’s Steak Frites showcases a well-marbled 8oz flat iron steak, grilled to order and served with deeply flavourful red wine jus, with a side of perfect home-cut pomme frites. Fish and shellfish dishes make the most of Canada’s waters, like Steelhead Trout pan fried in butter and served alongside a quinoa salad dressed with toasted almonds, green onion, dried currants and a lemon vinaigrette, and the authentic Moules Frites, a pound of mussels in a broth of tomato, saffron and paprika, with fennel, shallots and a splash of pernod, all served with Tableau’s pomme frites.
Each day, Tableau’s chalkboard highlights enticing Plats du Jour like Slow Cooked Lamb Shank with saffron couscous, preserved lemon and mint, Bouillabaisse with Ocean Wise halibut, prawns, and fresh mussels in a fennel tomato broth, and Côte de Porc, a brined pork chop in a grainy mustard and cider red wine jus, paired with potatoes and glazed vegetables. For those loyal to Tableau’s signatures, some menu fixtures remain, like the French Onion Soup with onion broth, gruyère and croûtons, and Mushrooms on Toast, a decadent indulgence of creamy mushrooms on brioche.
Tableau’s afternoon Happy Hour runs during prime patio hours from 2:30pm to 5:30pm, and a late night Happy Hour welcomes guests for snacks or larger plates from 9:30pm until doors close. Share a Charcuterie et Fromage platter in your choice of two sizes with a selection of three or five cheeses and locally cured meats. Make it a meal with the House Made Burger & Frites, a patty of house-ground fresh whole chuck grilled to perfection, topped with gruyère cheese, bacon, lettuce, and tomato, piled high on a soft bun spread with homemade dressing, and plated with a stack of pomme frites. Pair your choices with a highball for $5, a house wine for $6 (including bubbly), or an on-special feature beer or cocktail.
