Bon Appétit ...

Please be advised that, as we rea a large group (more than six people) we will have a A La carte Chef Menu for our group dinner. The cost for starter plus main course is from CAD 34 to CAD 61.

The Chef's fixed menu is an option, but it cost CAD 65 for three courses and CAD 85 for five courses.

Because of this, I will request that everyone confirm his/her attendance by 20 August at 6:00 pm. Any participant still included on the list will be considered committed, and will be responsible for paying a his/her no show for the dinner.

The information about the menu for large groups is included here:

About Protected content

Born near Aix-en-Provence in the south of France, owner/operator Gilles Brassart grew up in the kitchen surrounded by simple, fresh flavours and passion for food. After running two successful restaurant and bar projects in San Francisco, Gilles arrived in Calgary late in Protected content . Welcoming his daughter Lola-Rose into the world that winter, another labour of love was in its infancy: Cassis, a warm, accessible approach to cuisine drawn straight from Gilles roots in the south of France.
Finding a kindred spirit in L'Epicerie executive Chef Dominique Moussu, the philosophy and flavours of Cassis emerged. Authentic dishes inspired by the south of France and created with local, seasonal produce hand-selected daily from Market 17 next door. French and Canadian wines from J.Webb Wines carefully chosen to pair perfectly with Cassis Bistros approachable, delicious food dishes you will crave as soon as you leave.
