I mentioned this earlier and it was all over the news.
Lumiere and db Bistro Moderne is considered the premier dining establishment and a source of great pride to have in the culinary landscape in Vancouver.
The 16 year old restaurants Lumière and Feenie’s were founded by Iron Chef Rob Feenie and went on to win a number of culinary awards and accolades including the AAA Five Diamond Award and the prestigious Relais & Chateau designation, of which only 160 restaurants around the world have achieved.
It is sad to learn that they are going to call it a day. Their last day will be March 13th. They are apparently going out in style:
All of this being said, the duo of restaurants are well aware that they want to leave their mark and legacy on Vancouver’s loyal foodies. Restaurant operations will continue as normal until closing and on Sunday March 6, one week before closing, DB Bistro Moderne will resonate their legacy when they will serve Champagne and caviar, lobster poutine, sablefish, and many other luxurious goodies all part of the Visa Infinite Dining Series.
For the brunch, although exclusively for Visa Infinite holders and in limited numbers, tickets are priced unbelievably at $75.00 for this Sunday March 6th at DB Bistro Moderne. Please visit www.foodconnect.com to purchase tickets and for more information.
$75? You can have it for free!
A few months ago Carol gave Suanne and I a $100 gift certificate for Lumiere (which could also be used for db Bistro Moderne). Carol was the producer of the Fairchild documentary on chowtimes.
Suanne and I had been sitting on the gift card for months already just waiting for an occasion to splurge on a nice dinner. However, given the remaining time, unfortunately Suanne and I will not be able to make use of it. We tried to re-gift this back to Carol but Carol told us to re-gift it to someone else as she will also not be able to use it.
So anyone out there wants the gift card? It is worth $100 (we re-checked yesterday).
I’ll hold a draw on this for those who wants this. I’ll close the draw at 11:59PM on Thursday and will randomize the draw to pick the winner of the gift card.
All you have to do is to … leave your email address and comment below. Well, if you have nothing to say in the comment box, just say “Carol rocks!”. We will use the email address to contact you to deliver the gift card (and for no other purpose).
So that this gift card does not go to waste, please only enter for the draw if you have the intention to make use of the gift card. It is $100!
