Hot List 2009

DB Bistro Moderne, Vancouver

2551 W. Broadway

Tel: 604-739-7115

Daniel Boulud's first foray into Canada has easily won the affection of Vancouver's food cognoscenti with its sleek metropolitan look and assured cuisine. Set in upmarket Kitsilano, the restaurant is both casual and sophisticated, with a cool dining room done in earthy brown, cream, and shimmering silver decor and a buzzy cocktail lounge. The food, by chef Stephane Istel, is faithful to Boulud but adds a West Coast flavor. There's the same style and adherence to French technique, but ingredients are emblematic of the coast: just-picked beets and endive punctuated with Stilton; flaky Dungeness crab slicked with lime and mango; and sublime, locally sourced coq au vin. Everything is prepared with Gallic aplomb and expertly served by some of the city's most recognizable pros.
Tip: Resident mixologist Cameron Bogue is an alchemist of high rank (entrées, $19–$21).
