Chambar (Vancouver, "Belgian(?)", pictures)

(Found some more images in my Blackberry. I had posted some of these in a different thread a couple of weeks ago, but I thought I'd start a new one.)

Chambar is one of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver. The food is fantastic and the service is impeccable. It manages to feel casual and "high-end" at the same time. I like to sit up front by the window where the ambience feels more "pub-like". You can choose to sit at the back to have a more "white-linen" experience.

Chambar is often described as a "Belgian" restaurant. Sure...they have a good selection of Belgian beer (not the best in town - Stella's on Commercial Dr holds that crown) and Moule Frite. I consider it closer to a casual French bistro with middle-eastern influences perhaps?

In any case, my favorite way of eating at Chambar (and at any restaurant, really) is to sample round after round of small-plates. Their appetizers are fanastic (I like the charred octopus and the foie gras terrine).

They have an excellent cocktail menu and a highly skilled mixologist. Try the jasmine tea infused maritini - I don't recall what it is called.
