Revellers Can Ring in the New Year in Style at L’Abattoir
What: Fans of Gastown’s French-inspired dining destination, L’Abattoir, can now ring in the New Year while enjoying simple flavours in a refined setting. On December 31, 2014 L’Abattoir is offering up two ways for guests to experience its elegant menu, all while celebrating 2015.
When: December 31, 2014
Private dining space reservations are available between 7:00-10:00pm
Main dining space reservations are available between 5:30-10:30pm (last seating at 10:15pm)
Where: L’Abattoir, 217 Carrall Street, Vancouver, BC
Why: Party-goers can hobnob with other guests in the restaurant’s main dining area, where L’Abattoir will be serving up its full a la carte dinner service to the bustling crowds. Guests can sate their New Year’s Eve appetites sampling baked Pacific oysters with whipped garlic butter and Burgundy truffle; juicy pork shoulder cooked in milk with boudin noir; or keep it light and sample the Pacific ling cod fillet with a crispy sesame crust.
Behind the bar, Shaun Layton will keep the party going with a combination of classic and specially designed cocktails. Guests can sip on old favourites such as a tart New York Sour, or house originals such as the refreshing Gastown Swizzle. Sommelier Robert Herman will happily assist guests with selecting special bottles of Champagne and wine pairings for their meal.
For a more intimate experience, revellers can book a table for the evening in Vancouver’s newest premier private dining space. Enjoy an elegant dinner in L’Abattoir’sfive-course dinner menu, specially designed by Chef Lee Cooper. Highlights include foie gras parfaits with brioche and cherry; roast ribeye with broccoli, peppercorns and marrow butter; and chocolate cremeaux with passion fruit and yogurt sorbet to sate that sweet tooth.
Tables in the private dining space can accommodate groups from 2-6 people. The $150-per-person price includes the five-course-course dinner and beverage parings and is inclusive of tax. Tickets must be pre-sold in advance, and there will be an automatic gratuity of 18 per cent added on the final bill. The menu is set, with no substitutions or special requests available and is not suitable for vegetarians. With only 50 seats available, these pre-sold dinner tickets will surely sell out quickly!

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.
