L’Abattoir is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a prestigious Four Diamond Rating by AAA (formerly known as the American Automobile Association). The new Four Diamond Rating makes L’Abattoir a member of a very elite group, as only 2.6% of the 29,000 restaurants approved by AAA have attained the Four Diamond level. The rating identifies L’Abattoir as one of the few restaurants in North America to offer a “select dining experience” to guests. L’Abattoir is the only Vancouver restaurant to newly receive the distinction to date this year.
L’Abattoir’s co-owner and General Manager, Paul Grunberg, says that the restaurant’s success is due to a group effort. “People are the key. It’s essential to find and retain the right staff, people who take pride in what they do and who are willing to work together to realize the L’Abattoir vision of fine dining in a casual atmosphere.”
Located in the centre of Gastown between historic Gaoler’s Mews and Blood Alley, L’Abattoir is located in a 19th-century building that was the site of Vancouver’s first jail. The restaurant’s name pays homage to the neighbourhood’s colourful past. Chef Lee Cooper and General Manager Paul Grunberg are dedicated to highlighting the finer points of eating and drinking in an informal setting. French-influenced West Coast fare is paired with an eclectic wine program and Head Barman Shaun Layton’s innovative cocktail list to offer a truly unique dining experience.
