About Au Petit Chavignol

image007

In March of 2009, Alice and Allison Spurrell, owners of les amis du FROMAGE, along with Joe Chaput, opened the doors to Au Petit Chavignol, a 36 seat cheese and wine bar located at 845 East Hastings Street in Vancouver’s historic Strathcona neighbourhood, next to their newest location of les amis du FROMAGE. Opening to rave reviews, the restaurant has been a great success and a welcome addition to the les amis du FROMAGE family.

Au Petit Chavignol is a cheese-centric restaurant, with additional hot and cold selections including fresh seasonal salads, fondue, raclette, tartiflette, croque monsieur and other cheese based specialties. We make everything fresh daily and in-house. We offer the best selection of cheeses along with local artisan and house made charcuterie.

Whether you desire something small to nibble on before or after an event, or perhaps a full meal, Fromager Joe Chaput and Chef Brad Miller are sure you will leave satisfied. Come and EAT, DRINK and EXPLORE with us.

We offer several wines by the glass and bottle, along with bottled and draught beer. Our reserve wine list is made up of wines that vary from familiar to the obscure; to cheese friendly favourites and our favourite varietal…Riesling. Several of the “by the bottle” wines can be ordered by the glass if you commit to ordering at least two glasses.

Although the restaurant is currently only open five nights a week, we plan to have the restaurant open seven nights a week starting sometime in early September 2009.

East Side Welcomes Sweet New Wine Bar

I had to go and review a completely different restaurant for the paper tonight but I couldn’t help but also take a long-looked-forward-to tour of the brand new Au Petit Chavignol, a wine, cheese and charcuterie bar umbilically tied and allied to the almost finished Les Amis du Fromage location next door. Check it for yourselves at 843/845 East Hastings. So nice to see it busy out of the gate.

Propped up and already deeply cut, the Fermin Jamon Iberico de Bellota ham on the hoof did seduce in a most irregular, Rape of the Lapiths sort of way, but my betrothed belly could only afford a beer before elsewhere, a tart tongue lash of Blanche de Chambly.

Scout contributor Owen Lightly – solo star of one of my favourite local blogs, Butter on the Endive – was out front in his whites, knife busily slicing meat and splicing cheese. That’s him pictured on the left (above) next to Joe Chaput, local Lord of the Cheese and Salami Bossman. If you’ve never met Joe, he is oft-mistaken for a Bhuddist super ninja – David Carradine style – head shaved and armed with gouda and brie (when he works a wheel of cheddar his hands make wap wap sounds like a kung fu superstar). Anyway, lots of the people were there looking good under the flattering glow of a cool bar set up. The menu looked savoury and simple, and the wine list read like poetry. Great beers, too.

Regular readers might recall that I popped in for a recce while it was still very much in its embryonic stage, a mess of dust and tools and imaginings courtesy of designer John Shields. See the video above. I also took pics that day, which might prove interesting for the many before-and-after fetishists among us…

My sleeve drained and appetite sufficiently primed, it was then off to work proper. Break legs, fellas.
