L’ABATTOIR

Vancouver

L’Abattoir is located in the heart of historic Gastown. Built in the 19th century, it is the site of Vancouver’s first jail and originally buttressed the city’s main meat packing district. This history is reflected in the architecture, and the name L’Abattoir pays homage to the neighbourhood’s colourful past. Open seven days a week for dinner and now five days a week for lunch and weekend brunch, L’Abattoir specializes in French-inspired West Coast fare in a refined and comfortable setting.

 

“It was a wonderful afternoon. The food and wine pairings were thoughtfully put together, and it was great to share thoughts on the wines with like-minded others.”
