Eating at St Lawrence is like being in someone’s fancy rustic living room in the Quebec countryside. But you’re not in Quebec, you’re in the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver. It’s the best Québécois food in Vancouver and on a scale of richness from air to butter, most of the menu is a croissant. Order the “tourtiere,” a.k.a meat pie, that comes with its own tiny Montreal hockey flag, foie gras mousse, ratatouille, and sugar pie, and then go and lie down somewhere. All the curtains and candle holders make it an obvious choice for a special date or anniversary, just know it’s one of the most popular places in town.
