The GOODS from Le Parisien

Vancouver, BC | For more than 200 years the French have been celebrating the storming of the Bastille. Guests are invited to celebrate this national holiday on July 14 at Vancouver’s very own two corners of France, Bistro Pastis in Kitsilano and Le Parisien in the West End. Bastille Day is a time for sharing good food and wine with friends and neighbours. Both restaurants have planned festive menus so guests can relax and enjoy with loved ones. In addition to great food, Bistro Pastis presents Vancouver’s very own chansonnier, Josh Minsky. Guests may find themselves singing along with Josh in a rousing rendition of La Marseillaise.

Executive Chef Tobias Grignon has mined France’s classic bistro repertoire to bring the best of the best to Le Parisien’s menus – roasted bone marrow, roast chicken for two, cassoulet, boudin noir, croque monsieur, moules et frites, côte de boeuf , oysters, omelettes and tartare three ways – all this and much more will satisfy any appetite seeking the authentic taste of France. Le Parisien’s prices also reflect the French bistro ethos of good food at reasonable prices – you’ll find Le Parisien is kind to the budget and the pocketbook.

With Le Parisien’s authentic fare and Gallic atmosphere, you’ll experience your own Midnight in Paris moments. Cue the Trénet soundtrack.
