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

With no end in sight to this spectacular Summer weather, we’re staying with our Spring/Summer menu, featuring our version of Boudin Noir and the introduction of a specialty from the southwest of France, ‘Salad de Gesiers’, made with confit Duck gizzards!...we think both items will intrigue and satisfy the more adventurous ‘bon vivants’! Also new to this menu are the Bouillabaisse, the Filet de Porc, and our half-Cornish game hen, to compliment our classic offerings!

In the meantime, Chefs Christopher and Joanne are busy preparing for the inevitable fall drizzle, and with that, the reintroduction of more hearty dishes such as Cassoulet, Lamb Navarin, and Bourgignon, in addition to the always popular Veal Chop and Lamb Sirloin. We’ll keep you posted!

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.

Thanks to the readers of the Westender for choosing ‘Les Fauxbo’ as their favourite Eastside dining destination in the city, and kudos for Best French and Best Eastside from Vancouver Magazine and The Georgia Straight (2014 Vancouver Magazine awards 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.
