24 Hours - Vancouver
—Sarah Rowland
May 13, 2011

"...They were right, every last one of ’em. Les Faux Bourgeois (663 E. 15th Ave) is pretty damn perfect. Now, I too am one of those annoying people saying “Oh my God, you haven’t been to Les FauxBo? You have to go there. It’s sooooo good.”

Go ahead, be sneaky.  If you order for the table and don’t show anyone the menu, they’ll think you blew a small bundle on flakey tarte flambée Alsacienne, lamb sirloin napped a glossy sherry reduction and other richly braised French bistro classics.

NORTHWEST PALATE 
Laurie Guy 
Nov/Dec 2009

"...With traditional offerings, such a rich and flavorful pâté de campagne, steak frites, and duck confit, one feels the flavor of Paris seep in.  A fresh board offers up equally worthy specials that change each night...."

SALUT LES BON VIVANTS DE VANCOUVER!

“Uncork the wine, enjoy the dance, and let the Gods decide the rest!”—Horace

Horace’s words have stronger emphasis as we “hunker-down” for the fall and winter, and bring out the cold weather classics. The Parmentiers and the Cassoulet are back, all done in hearty ‘Fauxbo’ style - after all, we can’t let you out into the "freeze" with anything less than a full belly!

Our Veal Shank Parmentier, is a luscious dish made with a ragout of slow-cooked Veal shank, which is crowned with a creamy ‘pomme puree gratinee’! Another cold weather classic, is our Cabillaud, a dish of Pacific Cod, savoy cabbage, cod croquettes and Manila clam pan jus.“C’est arrive”— the Winter menu is here!

For those planning holiday parties, we will be open through December 23nd, closed for Christmas, and re-opening on December 27th.

We would like to thank all the kind and enthusiastic critics and food bloggers, who have made the trek to come and see us tucked away just north of the now blossoming Kingsway and Fraser.

Thank you to the readers of the Westender for choosing ‘Les Fauxbo’ as one of their favourite French destinations in the city, and for wonderful kudos from Vancouver Magazine and The Georgia Straight (Stars of 2017 and Golden Plates 2017) – we also had USA Today give us a shout-out as their favourite French restaurant in Vancouver. And thanks to the readers and contributors of Urban Spoon, Trip Advisor, and Yelp for their warm words!
We have a fine ensemble cast that is working hard to earn these kind sentiments.

As always, reservations are recommended though we do keep the dinner-bar “unreserved” for our walk-in customers. For those who want the share "l’amour", we are pleased to offer gift certificates for purchase.

 


Salut and Season's Greetings from all of us at Les Fauxbo!
