Bonne Fêtes des Mères! We all know that Sunday is Mother’s Day and the pressure is mounting to do something for this very special lady. What to do? Most people opt for brunch. You can do better than that.
Bien sur – the answer c’est très simple. Score big brownie points by taking her to France! Okay, we don’t mean the passport, Air Canada-type trip to France. We are talking about a more affordable and just as authentic experience – dinner at Bistro Pastis.
For Mother’s Day we are pleased to offer a very special three-course dinner for the very practical price of $45 (mothers always appreciate luxury at practical prices). Add a glass of champagne and pretty soon even the most Canadian mother will feel like a French Maman. She’ll love you for it!
