We’re a locally owned and operated restaurant that has been serving French cuisine in the Kitsilano area for a number of years. After deciding to close the restaurant after many of months of covid hardships, we made a plan to re-open with a different name and concept. We will be re-opening under the new name Lavidas, named after our Rottweiler/Mastiff who passed away from thyroid cancer in 2022.
Lavidas will be a contemporary comfort restaurant serving a variety of different cuisine. Our menus will be driven by local ingredients and cultural influences with fresh modern styling and molecular techniques.
We will continue to serve a few of our favourites from our previous menu along with some new dishes inspired by PNW ingredients.
We are a diverse and inclusive workplace/safe-space that supports and celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community. We have two gender-neutral bathrooms and are also wheelchair accessible.
Chef Jen was classically trained at the Culinary Institute of America in New York and apprenticed at a Relais & Châteaux restaurant in Montreal. They bring their passion for cooking and providing an outstanding experience back home to Vancouver.
We look forward to serving you soon !
