We dined at one of Vancouver’s premiere restaurants, Lumière, which is the brainchild of “Iron Chef” Rob Feenie. You might remember Rob from his victory over Iron Chef Morimoto on Iron Chef America! From that day on, Rob Feenie made millions of Canadians proud. Voted the Best Restaurant and Best French Restaurant by Vancouver Magazine seven years in a row, we knew were in for a wonderful evening. Be warned though, Lumière is not your typical restaurant–this place is the epitome of fine dining in Vancouver.
After showing up for our reservation at 6:30pm, we were seated in the dining room side of Lumière, which consists of set menus, which is different from their tasting bar on the other side of the restaurant. The environment inside was very intimate, with seating for only 50 or so. Frosted windows on the street side of the restaurant provided privacy for patrons.
We decided to taste their Signature Menu, a 10 course extravaganza that goes by the price of $180 per person–yes, your eyes are not seeing things! Are you ready? Let’s take a look at what we had this evening, shall we (how many times have I used this line)? I’m going to let the pictures do the talking (thanks to my digital SLR I was able to take decent low light pictures without flash), along with the description of each course–enjoy!
