Today L’Abattoir co-owners, chef Lee Cooper and restaurateur Paul Grunberg, release tickets to chef’s-table-styled ‘restaurant-within-a-restaurant’ concept: No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews.

Located in the historic cobblestone Gaoler’s Mews courtyard behind the intimate, brick-and-beam environs of L’Abattoir, No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews offers an exclusive opportunity for eight guests per month to indulge in a true VIP experience that will see Chef Cooper prepare and present his signature brand of celebrated French-via-West-Coast cuisine before their very eyes.

Hosted by Grunberg and L’Abattoir Wine Director Lisa Haley, No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews offers a truly unparalleled experience for guests from beginning to end — from an elegant welcome package mailed in advance, fine crystal glassware and table settings to custom décor and keepsake gifts.

“Developing the No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews concept has been a true labour of love for myself, Lee and our entire team and we are beyond thrilled to introduce this exclusive opportunity to our guests,” says Grunberg. “We look forward to pushing the envelope and welcoming our guests for these indulgent and ultra exclusive evenings.”

The first of its kind in Vancouver, No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews follows in the footsteps of a number of notable ‘restaurant-within-a-restaurant’ concepts such as É by José Andrés (Las Vegas), Blanca (New York) and Kitchen Table (London).

No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews launched its first exclusive dinner on Friday, May 19, with subsequent monthly dates in 2017 set for June 23, July 21, Aug. 18, Sept. 29, Oct. 27 and Nov. 24. Tickets to the Oct. 27 No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews dining experiences will be released on Tuesday, August 1 at 10am at
