24 Hours - Vancouver
—Sarah Rowland

"...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’s proclamation is even more emphatic as we hunker-down for the fall and winter and bring out the cold-weather classics. The specials boards boast of rich Cassoulet, Boudin Noir, and thick veal chops; but also those subtler offerings like mushrooms & brioche, tartar, and rillette.

Braised pork hock and lardons make for beautiful accompaniments to our Toulouse sausage and marinated wine cabbage, which come together in our Choucroute, the traditional Alsatian country-favourite. Another cold weather comfort is our Queue de Boeuf, an oxtail ragout with king oyster mushrooms, kale, and crispy leeks – c’est bien arriveé: the Winter menu is here!

We 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.

We are also grateful to the readers of the Westender for choosing ‘Les Fauxbo’ as their favourite French destination in the city, and for wonderful kudos from both The Courier and The Georgia Straight (Stars of 2013 and Golden Plates 2013). 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 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.
