Now in its fifth year, Good France (called Goût de France in its native tongue), rallies restaurants around the globe to sign up to offer a one-night only multi-course menu that honours the food of France.

For 2019, the fest will focus on the flavours of Provence, though each participating restaurant will come up with their own offerings for the special day.

At each of the seven Vancouver-area French (or French-ish) restaurants taking part this year, diners will find menus consisting of an aperitif with finger food; a starter; one or two main course(s); a cheese platter and/or a dessert; all accompanied by French wines and champagnes. For menu details and reservations, contact the restaurants directly.

Here are the Good France 2019 Vancouver restaurants:

1. Tableau Bar Bistro
2. St Lawrence
3. Provence Marinaside
4. Le Crocodile
5. Bistro 41 (by Faubourg)
6. Origo
