Children and Youth Menu

db Bistro Moderne Children and Youth DinnerChildren and Youth Menu items are offered fresh daily, upon request, on an individualized and age-appropriate basis to suit the taste preferences of our younger customers.  With few exceptions, dishes are offered on a cost and portion-size reduced basis.  Chef Istel and his team are happy to create nutritious and delicious mini menus that showcase fresh, seasonal ingredients and respect developing palates.


Young foodies love Chef's mini Crudité starter, and smaller portions of pastas like Cavatelli or Tortellini, the Pomme Frites, and the warm and creamy Chicken Grand Mere.  And for brunch, the fussiest of young ones covet Chef's Brioche French Toast with warm maple syrup and roasted pear, the Belgian Waffle with fresh berry compote and real whipped cream, and the Fresh Fruit Parfaits with honeyed granola and seasonal berries.  Bottomless house-made iced tea with tiny jugs of citrus, mint or simple syrup on the side are especially popular with children.


If you wish to discuss youth menu options in advance of your visit, or if your children or the young people in your party have particular dietary requirements, please be in touch with Maitre d' Ali Maher directly at 604.739.7115 or via email at
