For more than a decade chef Sean Brennan and sommelier Marc Morrison have served up consistently high-quality French fare at Brasserie L'ecole. A well-stocked bar on one side of the narrow, candlelit room eases the wait for the bistro's dozen no-reservation tables. French classics on the menu include steak/frites (it's worth spending a few bucks to upgrade to the special truffle oil and garlic-spiced fries), onion soup, endive salad, and moules/frites, as well as rockfish, Sooke trout, and local oysters on the half shell. Be careful not to gorge yourself on the bistro's delicious baguette so you can save some room for a perfect creme caramel. Historic French posters and photos in the casually elegant brick-walled dining room, located in a Chinatown heritage building, help to conjure up the ambiance of Paris.
