fEASTVAN - Les Faux Bourgeois

Reactions: 
Although Dine Out Vancouver is the more popular Prix Fixe dining bargain in early 2012, another up and coming event is fEASTVan. With participation from East Van restaurants, $1 from every prix fixe dinner sold will go towards the Vancouver Inner City Back Pack Food Program. Great cause with Great Food! 
We tried their Assiette de Charcuterie, which features a changing assortment of cured meats, cheese with some dried fruit and nuts. This is one of my favourite ways to start of a meal. Lots of selection and salty flavours. Things like this really whet my appetite. 
For our mains, we selected the Canard Confit, which was a duck leg confit, with a load of du Puy lentils. Rounding out the plate were some green beans and a mustard jus. The skin could have been crispier, but the mean inside was nice and tender. Although I've never been a huge fan of lentils, their presence here gave this dish the comfort factor that I didn't expect. 
The other main we got was Le Steak Frites, a generous portion of hanger steak with frites. On the side is your choice of a red wine shallot jus or herb butter or green peppercorn cream sauce. We went with the red wine and was really happy we did. The butter or cream sauce would have been too rich for the steak, which was just gently seasoned with salt and pepper. Grilled to a medium rare, they let it rest and then slice it up for your enjoyment. And yes, the portion is really big, and definitely ample for one person. I've come here quite a few times with my parents before and it has slipped my mind over the past few months. But now, I remember and will definitely be back. It's a warm and cozy room and the wait staff really know their stuff.
