Vancouver, BC | Fifteen years goes by in the blink of an eye, yet it is a long time in the restaurant world. On May 7, 1999 John Blakeley opened Pastis on a quiet strip of West 4th in Kitsilano. The only other restaurant in the area was the iconic Bishop’s. During the intervening years, Bistro Pastis has seen a lot of change – both within the restaurant itself and in the neighbourhood. Pastis morphed from fine-dining to Bistro Pastis – a cosy and casual neighbourhood bistro, John Blakeley was knighted by the government of France and is now a Chevalier, and a vibrant restaurant scene sprung up along W.4th Avenue – attracting diners from across the city.

During the 15 years, some of Vancouver’s finest chefs have headed the kitchens at Bistro Pastis – Dino Renaerts, Brad Miller and Tobias Grignon are all Pastis alumni. To celebrate, John Blakeley has invited the aforementioned chefs along with current Executive Chef Spencer Watts and Pastry Chef Heather Rumsby to join him in creating a very special anniversary dinner on May 7th.
