Au Petit Chavignol – restaurant now open
Au Petit Chavignol (845 East Hastings Street) is now open. Strathcona’s new 36 seat cheese and wine bistro is open for dinner from 5pm to Midnight, Thursday through Monday. Their dinner menu is categorized into “cow”, “goat” and “sheep” (milk, that is) and “mixed milk”. All cheeses are served with baguette and croccantini. A selection of accompanying side dishes can also be ordered for $3 or less – including almonds, onions, specialty cherries, jelly and granny smith apple. I am a big fan of nibbley food and tapas; I have yet to try out Au Petit Chavignol but I am looking forward to checking it out in the near future!
