Le Parisien is a quaint little French-style bistro located in Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood and is offering a well-priced Four Course Valentine’s Day menu (priced at under $60). We Love the polished, sexy feel of the room with marble-topped tables tucked around every nook and cranny, sleek decor and vibrant colours infuse the room – lending it an intimate ambiance at night. A fleshed out wine list ensures you and your date will have ample options to choose from and the conversation will easily flow as various dishes make their way to your table. We’re talking seared scallops, caramelized onion risotto, goat cheese and smoked salmon terrine, beef tenderloin and more. Located at 751 Denman Street, enjoy a post-dinner stroll toward English Bay to cap things off.
In keeping with the romance of France, another option worth checking out is Les Faux Bourgeois (located at 663 E. 15th Avenue). We love the cozy space that is constantly bustling with activity, boisterous local characters and the scent of delicious food. With plenty of traditional offerings such as steak frites, duck confit, escargot and other items you might expect from a French restaurant, Les Faux is delving deeper as part of their two and three course set menu offerings for Valentine’s Day. Priced at only $33 and up per person, this is a wallet-friendly option that will still ensure an intimate night on the town. Opt for the house made onion soup, truite menuiere and chocolate silk cake for a sweet grand finale.
Another Valentine’s Day option worthy of YP consideration is Two Chefs and a Table‘s own ‘Vintage Romance’-themed dinner being offered this year. That’s right, they’ve just announced they’ll be hosting a candlelit dinner, complete with vintage glass and tableware and their multi-course menu of classic dishes circa the early 20th century (think dining aboard the Titanic, or at the Savoy Hotel). Look for crab Louie salad, bacon-wrapped tenderloin, salmon Wellington and other treats to take over the table and help set the stage for a romantic evening out. They’ve paired all dishes with classic old world wines, authentic cocktails from the era and more. By the sounds of it, the only thing that will be missing is an appearance by Humphrey Bogart. Reserve today, space is limited and cost is $75 per person.
