Fans of Gastown’s French-inspired dining destination can now ring in the New Year while enjoying simple flavours in a refined setting.
L’Abattoir is offering up two ways for guests to experience its elegant menu, all while celebrating 2015. Party-goers can hobnob with other guests in the restaurant’s main dining area, where L’Abattoir will be serving up its full a la carte dinner service to the bustling crowds. Guests can sate their New Year’s Eve appetites sampling baked Pacific oysters with whipped garlic butter and Burgundy truffle; juicy pork shoulder cooked in milk with boudin noir; or keep it light and sample the Pacific ling cod fillet with a crispy sesame crust.
Behind the bar, Shaun Layton will keep the party going with a combination of classic and specially designed cocktails. Guests can sip on old favourites such as a tart New York Sour, or house originals such as the refreshing Gastown Swizzle. Sommelier Robert Herman will happily assist guests with selecting special bottles of Champagne and wine pairings for their meal, showcasing the restaurant wine list that offers a mix of classics and hidden gems.
For a more intimate experience, revellers can book a table for the evening in Vancouver’s newest premier private dining space. Enjoy an elegant dinner in L’Abattoir’s 1,200-square-foot private room, which retains the restaurant’s ambiance without the hustle and bustle of the regular dining space. Sip on perfectly paired wine and cocktails and savour each bite of the five-course dinner menu, specially designed by Chef Lee Cooper. Highlights include foie gras parfaits with brioche and cherry; roast ribeye with broccoli, peppercorns and marrow butter; and chocolate cremeaux with passion fruit and yogurt sorbet to sate that sweet tooth. The $150-per-person price includes the set dinner menu (no substitutions) and beverage pairings. With only 50 seats available, these pre-sold dinner tickets will surely sell out quickly!
