Alouette (French for ‘lark’) is the newest concept from the folks at Executive Table Restaurants, which specializes in casual and fine dining experiences around Vancouver.

And apparently, it’s time for a change at Hotel Le Soleil. Alouette will try to bring classic French bistro cuisine to Vancouver, with a healthy dose of West Coast ingredients and inspiration. Vancouver’s no stranger to French cuisine both high and low, so we’re excited to see what they’re bringing to the table.

Details about the menu are scarce, but diners will be able to enjoy brunch, lunch and dinner menus. As for specific options, the only ones that have been shared so far are Coquille (scallops) St. Jacques and the absolutely classic Steak Frites.

The restaurant is slated to open this weekend, so get ready to make a reservation!


When: Opening this weekend
Where: 567 Hornby Street
