One of Vancouver’s most acclaimed restaurants, Le Crocodile
blends traditional French cooking with innovative West Coast style. Chef Michel Jacob opened the restaurant upon his arrival in Vancouver, seeking to match and achieve the level of culinary standards and service of the finest restaurant in his hometown of Strasbourg
, the three-star Michelin restaurant Au Crocodile. Thirty years later, with some of the original staff still there, Le Crocodile is at the top of the list for business people who want to impress a client, and generation after generation of families have passed through the restaurant’s doors. This understated and elegant restaurant has been host to some of the world’s most famous people, such as Jean Chrétien, Jack Nicholson, Steven Spielberg, Al Pacino, and Cindy Crawford, just to name a few. Patrons love exquisite menu items like escargot, veal and duck, bone marrow, Chilean sea bass, lamb shank, pan seared foie gras and sweetbreads, and the lobster bisque. The chef will even sent out small dishes before each course, which have in the past included caribou tarts before the appetizer, fries before the main course, and a palate cleanser before dessert. Reservations must be made well in advance for this popular fine dining restaurant.
