Left Bank Menu Tasting
Left Bank Restaurant and Bar is now open at 751 Denman Street in the location that once housed Le Parisien and previously Cafe de Paris. The revamp was more than just a room spruce up,this time around and both the menu and the interior are very different. While there will still be some of the classic French dishes on the menu, they are now influenced by international flavours and many items venture far from France.
Restaurateur John Blakely is the proprietor here; he also owns Kitsilano’s Pastis and had Le Parisien previously in this space. Many remember Blakely from his days at Diva at The Met, he is a fixture in the Vancouver restaurant scene and a epic host! In the kitchen Chef Spencer Watts is in charge and front of house is the always charming and attentive Guillaume Cagna; they make a very good team. Pictured above are Cagna and Watts and Chef Rory Higdon.
Left Bank’s dinner offerings include steamed mussels and crisp pork belly (pictured above) and mains such as duck confit and sockeye salmon (also pictured above) and of course there is the classic steak frites.
