Vancouver is known for having an eclectic mix of ethnic offerings when it comes to food, which has bumped our city to world class status among the foodie set. But one area we seem to be lacking is French, at least in my neighborhood.
Jules Bistro in Gastown and Les Faux Bourgeois in Mount Pleasant have been my go-to faves when seeking something with a little je ne sais quoi. But now I only have to stroll a few few blocks for my foie gras fix.
Caché Bistro, located on Hamilton @ Drake on the edge of Yaletown, continues to win me over every time I dine there. The sultry red interior has a Moulin Rouge vibe and the servers are attentive and playful (ask to sit in Adam’s section, if you can).
Owners Alex and Zoë Mok had been cooking and serving friends and locals at their Vancouver apartment in an underground supper club — an exclusive and intimate dinner party of a few with custom menus designed by Alex. Eventually, they decided to bring their creations to the public and opened Caché last year.
For dinner, I highly recommend the Coq au vin or the Lobster Thermidor (lobster risotto and sautéed french bean). Try something Canadiana for dessert and indulge in the Caché s’more.
