Gastropod offers chef Angus An’s modern-European cuisine, served in an intimate and chic setting. An’s dishes are innovative, but with the focus always on flavor. Every element on the plate serves a purpose; every technique is used only to enhance the diner’s experience; and the result is a collection of modern and unique dishes with flavors, textures and aromas in perfect harmony.
Heavily influenced by his classical French training, as well as his Asian heritage, each dish is a reflection of Chef An’s desire to present flavors and textures in playful and newly delectable ways.Gastropod combines Chef An’s distinctive style, with seasonal, top-quality, locally sourced ingredients from respected purveyors, including Polderside Farms, Sloping Hill Farm and Nicola Valley Ranch, among others.
Diners at Gastropod can choose from an a-la-carte menu, or select a 3, 5 or 9-course tasting menu – all offered with optional pairings of local and international wines. All tasting menus also include a complimentary amuse bouche as well as a pre-dessert. At $49.50 for three courses, Gastropod makes a truly memorable dining affordable, striking the perfect balance between “fine” and “neighborhood” dining.
