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!”

We strive even harder to live by Horace’s words as we head into the fall and winter. But there is help from our cold-weather favourites which have returned just in time. The Beef Bourguignon 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! Braised Lardon and pork hock make for beautiful accompaniment to our Toulouse sausage and marinated wine cabbage, which come together in our Choucroute, the Alsatian country classic. Another cold weather comfort is our Cabillaud, a dish of Pacific Cod, savoy cabbage, cod croquettes and Manila clam pan jus. As with the season, c’est arrivé: the Winter menu is here!

For those planning holiday parties, we will be open through December 21st, closed for Christmas, and then reopen on Friday December 26th. Reservations can be made at 604.873.9733

Our 2015 New Year's Eve menu is here.

In the meantime, 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. Thanks to the readers of the Westender for choosing ‘Les Fauxbo’ as one of their favourite French destinations in the city (and Best Eastside!!), and for wonderful kudos from Vancouver Magazine and The Georgia Straight (Stars of 2014 and Golden Plates 2014). And thanks to the readers and contributors of Urban Spoon and Yelp for their kind 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!
