Vancouver’s best restaurants for French cuisine, according to a top chef

Chef Garrett Blundell was trained in French cuisine and has worked in several restaurants serving this type of food over the years.

It’s no surprise he knows some salivate-worthy spots for French cuisine, and he spoke to Narcity about all the best restaurants in Vancouver to get it.

In the past, Blundell has cooked for restaurants around the world, including a Michelin-starred restaurant and a few French-inspired restaurants across British Columbia.

Now, he serves up delicious dishes with his expertise and skill as Executive Chef at Victor in Vancouver.

When he’s not eating at Victor and he wants to eat French, he goes to these gems.
