Three Diamonds Shine Over db Bistro Moderne Vancouver

January 28, 2010 - Vancouver, BC – Proprietors David and Manjy Sidoo and Daniel Boulud are extraordinarily pleased to announce that, db Bistro Moderne, Vancouver, has been awarded AAA/CAA’s prestigious ‘Three Diamond’ rating, just one year after the new restaurant opened its doors.

“We are just thrilled to be awarded three diamonds already,” says David Sidoo. “The rating validates the confidence that Daniel and Manjy and I had in the db Bistro concept for this market, and the enthusiasm with which our clients have embraced Daniel Boulud and Chef de Cuisine Stephane Istel.  Daniel, Manjy and I wish to thank our outstanding restaurant team and our loyal clients, for an excellent first year.”

To receive an AAA/CAA (Triple A) Three Diamond rating a restaurant must meet specific criteria regarding the skill level and professionalism of Chefs and management, authentic mastery of traditional and contemporary cuisine, consistent delivery of an identifiable concept, individualized and refined service, restaurant comfort and décor, and overall packaging of a distinctive concept.

db Bistro Moderne, Vancouver, is a new, west coast interpretation of Daniel Boulud’s famous db Bistro Moderne in New York, but promises the same urban vibe, dynamic atmosphere, and modern French bistro cuisine as her east coast namesake.  db Bistro Moderne is a contemporary Canadian bistro where traditional French cuisine meets the fresh-picked, just-caught flavours of British Columbia.  Chefs Daniel Boulud and Stephane Istel offer a seasonal menu highlighting the quality of fine ingredients served in a convivial and casual setting.

Interior settings adapt the db Bistro Moderne New York experience – a contemporary spin on classic French bistro dining - to its new Vancouver setting, a city that marries sophistication with a relaxed, West Coast outdoors lifestyle.  At the rear of the space is a 20-seat private dining room.

Chef de Cuisine Stephane Istel, a Daniel Boulud protégé from New York, reigns supreme in his Vancouver kitchen. Stephane’s Alsatian-inspired menus showcase Pacific Northwest ingredients, classic French techniques, and New York haute cuisine. The result is a truly contemporary French Bistro experience, unrivaled in the city. Classic French Bistro affairs like Jazz Nights and Wine Dinners transport guests to another place and time and overwhelm the senses with all that is fun and delicious.

Classical French dishes like Alsatian Pate en Croute, Coq au Vin, Charcuterie, Cassoulet de Toulouse, and Tarte Fine Provencal, are offered alongside an ever-changing menu of contemporary local dishes like Quadra Island Mussels served Espagnole, Seared Arctic Char, and Dungeness Crab Cakes. And of course, the famous ‘New York db Burger’ is a perennial favourite at db Bistro Moderne Vancouver.
