Experience fine cuisine, prepared by tomorrow's great chefs
Bistro 101 at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts was founded to create a 'real-world' training experience for the school’s professional Culinary and Baking & Pastry Arts students. Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts was the first private training facility in Canada with a fine dining restaurant on the premises. To master all aspects of restaurant organization, our Restaurant Instructors guide students through formal guest service (front of house training).
Open five days a week for à la carte & buffet dining and available for private events, weddings and catering functions, Bistro 101 provides guests with both a fine-dining experience and a glimpse at the world’s future great Chefs in training.
During the summer season from June 13th until September 12th, Bistro 101 will not be serving a buffet for dinner. We will still have a lunch buffet on those Fridays, but dinner will be our a la carte 3-course menu. The last dinner buffet will be on June 6th, and buffet dinner will resume on September 19th.
Comments from our Clients:
"To everyone who makes your Bistro tick - from the delightful and talented students to the warm, welcoming professional staff - thank you. By fluke, we got the last table yesterday for lunch. What a treat. The environment is so pleasant - the way dining should be. Comfortable, conversation not drowned out by noise or questionable music. The servers were delightful, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun. The lunch - delectable! Presented beautifully, cooked to perfection and more than ample. (We hardly had any dinner last night after that beautiful lunch). The uniforms - down to the blue buttons - all terrific. Cannot wait to return again and have already recommended it to friends and family in Vancouver." - Nancy W. (April 2013 | Lunch @ Bistro 101)
