The GOODS from St. Lawrence

Vancouver, BC | Vancouver’s award-winning St. Lawrence restaurant will transport guests on a tour of the celebrated culinary regions of France when it debuts its new monthly dinner series beginning this March and continuing throughout the spring.

Following its successful second-annual Cabane à Sucre festival that continues until the end of February, the latest series to take centre stage at Canada’s top-ranked restaurant kicks off in March with a Lyon-inspired menu, followed with a tour of Burgundy in April and closes out with the finale, showcasing Provence, in May.

As with the Cabane series, the menus will be available for guests to enjoy at St. Lawrence for $69 per person or in the comfort of their own homes for $49 per person. Tickets for both dine-in and take-home will be released online at stlawrencerestaurant.com at 5 p.m. PST on Friday, February 12 (March menu), Friday, March 19 (April menu) and Friday, April 16 (May menu).

Throughout March, the Lyon menu showcases the cuisine of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region with a delicious array of dishes and the option to add on wine pairings sourced from vineyards and estates of Bourgogne, Beaujolais, Jura, Savoie, Auvergne and Rhône Valley and handpicked by the St. Lawrence team of sommeliers.
