The ever-charming Daniel Boulud has cast his culinary spell on the
Vancouver dining scene and we couldn’t be more pleased. Herewith, our
Top 5 picks from his new, casual outpost DB
1. The intimate, low-slung ceiling (at least eight inches thick and de
riguer in Boulud’s restaurants internationally), which ensures the
conversation never overtakes the dinner.
2. The floor-to-ceiling glass "private" roomvoyeur dining at its best
(Madonna would approve).
3. Boulud’s signature starter, the Alsatian-style, wafer thin Tarte
Flambé with crème fraîche, carmelized onions and smokey bacon. Do as we
did and pair it with a glass of crisp Alsatian white and channel Belle
4. The sexy zebra-tiled washrooms located in a shared corridor between
Lumière and DB Bistro that are destined to spark some interesting
rendez-vous among Vancouver’s upwardly mobile set.
5. Boulud himself, the Lyon-bred culinary wonder whose gracious demeanor
and obvious love of the job is the most refreshing pairing we’ve had all
