From the press release:

The Roaring Twenties era still evokes visions of a golden time of luxury and creativity, and no story captures the moment like The Great Gatsby. To celebrate the imminent release of a new film adaptation of this great story, Two Chefs and a Table will become “The Gatsby” for three weeks this spring. The menu and room will be transformed with authentic dishes from the twenties, tableside service and décor that sets the mood for indulgence.


Over the past years, Two Chefs and a Table has paid tribute to this era in a series of wildly popular prohibition-themed dinners, and during The Gatsby, the team will once again carefully recreating famous and forgotten dishes and drinks, reintroducing them to modern diners in their intimate bistro.


Working closely on décor with A&B Partytime Rentals, the restaurant will be transformed with lace, linens , candles and silver punch bowls and the Chef’s Table will become the stunning centrepiece of the room for groups of up to 10. Blackout curtains will evoke the privacy of a speakeasy and period music will set the mood for an escape to another time and place.
Along with classic dishes like Roasted Duck, Steak Tartare, Salmon Wellington, Waldorf Salad, Croquettes and Duchesse Potatoes, guests will be offered period drinks like punch, or a martini, shaken and served tableside. Three and five-course set menus will be offered along with a la carte options.


“The period dinners that we’ve done have been some of our favourite events but we always wanted to have the time to do an even more with our room and menu,” said Karl Gregg. “By doing this dinner event as a pop-up, we’re able to spend even more time and energy transforming the bistro into a tribute to the era.”


The Gatsby will run Wednesday-Saturday nights for three weeks beginning April 17th and reservations can be made by calling 778-233-1303. Thanks to A&B Partytime Rentals and Dan Sebal for their help in designing the décor.
