Bistro Pastis (West 4th Ave. between Arbutus and Yew St. 604-731-5020) is one of my favourite "nicer" restaurants in town. They consider themselves more casual and cosy than fine dining (having gone from the fine dining version, Pastis to the present day, Bistro Pastis), but the service and food quality stands up to any in town, in my experience. They are definitely not pretentious, as I have dropped in as a single diner looking for food while on 4th and had outstanding service. Their meals in my past visits has been both comforting and interesting at the same time, and always delicious. To celebrate their 15th anniversary and to thank their customers, they are offering 25% off food and house wines from May 15 - June 15. This is such a great deal, I had to share it with you. The original press release mentions the deal going to June 8th, but the restaurant sent out an email with June 15th as the end date, so if the discount is important to you, you may want to ask about it when you call for reservations. Bon appetit!
