Last night I attended the opening party for Tableau Bar Bistro, that opens today connected to the Loden Hotel on Melville in downtown Vancouver.
The beautiful room by local interior designer Franco Avignoni is going to become a people watchers paradise, he has blended old world classic bistro elements such as custom brasses, solid wood panelling, marble and leather banquettes with original “pop art” elements, its modern and dynamic.
As guests arrived, cocktails along with white and red wine were served, then came delicious appetizers such as the Prawn Cocktail in a cucumber mini-cup, Mini Beef Burgers, Cheeses and Charcuterie along with a tasty roasted nut mix. Servers passed around a variety of dishes, my favourites of the night were the French Onion Soup, Mini Beef Burgers and the Lamb Chops!
The menu is French-inspired, has a beautiful outdoor patio, private dining room and a large event space.
Tableau Bar Bistro serves brunch, lunch, dinner daily, located at 1181 Melville Street in Vancouver and online at www.TableauBarBistro.com , phone 604-639-8692.
