Where Vancouver - - Dining -

Gassy Jack’s statue pre­sides over myr­iad cuisines, in­clud­ing faith­fully French Jules Bistro (page 72). Here, tried-and-true Gal­lic treats range from lob­ster bisque, es­car­gots Bour­guignonne and soupe à l’oignon to moules frites, duck con­fit and pan-seared sal­mon Provençal. While happy hour bites and wine spe­cials are a big draw, lo­cals favour the prix fixe menus, en­joyed in a cozy, dark-pan­elled set­ting. Food­ies head to Co­quille (page 71), deluxe pur­veyor of ma­rine cui­sine; Bauhaus (page 71), which wins ac­co­lades for el­e­vated con­tem­po­rary Ger­man fare; and long-run­ning Sitar (page 72), for In­dian spe­cial­ties such as tan­doori chicken, prawn masala, alu gobi and mut­ter pa­neer.
