02 Aug Dining at the Lovely L Abattoir
About a week ago, I had a superb evening at L’Abattoir (217 Carrall Street, Vancouver). After all, it is hard to beat delicious food, champagne and the company of the fabulous Rebecca Rawlinson, my friend and fashion guru!
I chose ocean fresh halibut, thinly wrapped in bacon, and served with pea shoots and gnocchi, all surrounded by a buttery green pea sauce — OMG, anytime the words bacon and gnocchi appear in the same sentence, you just know it’s going to be good!
Our surprise dessert was local strawberry shortcake served with strawberry sorbet. These berries were mouthwateringly good (you know the kind that taste like real strawberries), picked at the peak of ripeness, sweet, juicy and intense.
L’Abbatoir is a cool space with a hip crowd. All our needs were met by our gorgeous and delightful waiter, John, and by owner Paul Grunberg, who is the consummate host.
