L’Abattoir is located in the center of Gastown between historic Gaoler’s Mews and Blood Alley. The restaurant was built in the 19th century and is the site of Vancouver’s first jail. Originally buttressed to the city’s main butchery and meat packing district, the name L’Abattoir pays homage to the neighbourhood’s colourful past.
Set in a refurbished brick and beam building that combines classic French tile work with industrial fixtures, natural wood, and glass and steel finishes, the restaurant offers a bar and lounge setting, elevated dining room and plush, sun soaked atrium.
Chef Lee Cooper and Owner/Operator Paul Grunberg are dedicated to highlighting the finer points of eating and drinking in L’Abattoir’s informed but informal setting. Service is expertly orchestrated to be unpretentious yet refined by Restaurant Director Lisa Haley while the French influenced West Coast fare is paired with an eclectic wine program and innovative cocktail list to offer a truly unique dining experience.
L’Abattoir adds to Gastown’s bustling weekend brunch scene with a menu mixing comforting staples with hearty, unique entrees. Thirsty diners can sip on creative daytime cocktails, an exclusive selection of ‘grower’ Champagne and sparkling wines, as well as non-alcoholic options such as fresh-pressed juices and tasty virgin cocktails.
Just adjacent to L’Abattoir’s regular dining room is the restaurant’s stunning new private dining facility. The 1,200 sq ft. facility features historical architectural elements complimented by a contemporary design aesthetic. While large enough for 50 people seated or 70 standing, the room retains an intimate ambiance and a noise-reducing barrier blocks out the hustle and bustle of the regular dining room.
Serving seven nights a week. Join us.
