Casual. Neighborhood. Comfort food. Central Bistro Vancouver downtown is located on 1072 Denman Street. It features an international menu with the weekend brunch option. Their East Coast Benny with poached eggs, hollandaise sauce and topped with caramelized onions and fresh lobster meat is sinful.
Sunday Night Jazz features live local jazz music syncopation starting at 7pm.
Tonight we came for the $35 for Three-Course Dinner for Two People at Central Bistro (Value up to $70) SocialShopper deal. This includes one appetizer to share, two entrees and one dessert of your choice to share.
Charcuterie Plate 16: a variety of meat & cheese selection which changes daily. Tonight is fennel salami, smoky camembert cheese, a sharp cheddar, sliced granny smith apples, red pear, selection of nuts, and homemade chutney. All served with a side of warm toasted bread. I do wish there was more meat to choose from.
Classic Italian Cioppino 18: a plentiful bowl of halibut, cod, salmon & plump mussels in tomato white wine fennel and herb broth; served with a grilled baguette to dip into your soup. I liked the zing and spiciness from saffron in the soup.
8oz Sterling Silver Steak & Frites 25: truffled cafe de Paris compound butter seared perfectly medium-rare steak. Nicely seasoned and served with crispy kennebec potato fries. Arugula and enoki mushroom salad.
New York Cheesecake: a generous piece of rich well-made cheesecake. We optioned for the classic to keep things simple. Mocha, S’mores and Pumpkin Spice was also available as dessert of the day.
There seems to be little wrong we can say of this often overlooked restaurant here on the Westend. The Central Bistro offers a nice variety of Eurpoean and classic American comfort food like their Central Beef Burger or Barbecue Lambwich. I’m thinking of coming back soon, and probably will purchase another SocialShopper Deal before it runs out.
