The Pear Tree Restaurant has been invested in comfort ever since it opened nearly two decades ago, pairing its foams and confits with a tranquil and inviting setting in the suburbs. It’s also celebrated its connections with the wider local landscape, sourcing its vegetables from small farms in the area. Today’s Groupon invites you to sample The Pear Tree’s new-fashioned Canadian hospitality with a five-course Elegant Canadian Comforts menu for two or four. Dinner includes:

  • Warm carrot and brie foam scented with cardamom
  • Pan-roasted local trout with pommes dauphine
  • Canadian organic grain salad with chicken confit
  • Fraser Valley pork served three ways with parsnip purée and Pemberton fingerling potatoes
  • Caramel pots de crème with Valrhona chocolate-chip cookies<p>

No substitutions available for the menu.

Stark, geometric presentations let diners focus on each ingredient as it comes out of the kitchen and savor a spectrum of local flavors. The earthy tone is set by a light but rich foam of carrot and brie. Morsels of crisped potato and choux pastry lay beneath a second course of local trout—a dish that Vancouver Magazine called “a revelation”—displaying a knack for textural contrast that continues in the organic grain salad with melt-in-your-mouth chicken confit.

The star of the show may be the three different preparations of Fraser Valley pork—surrounded by more root vegetables—but dessert is no pushover, either. It’s hard to imagine a dish much more comforting than a pairing of custardy caramel pots de crème with cookies, the chips in which come from artisanal French chocolatiers Valrhona. That ingredient may be far-flung, but its producers operate in a way that’s familiar to The Pear Tree’s chef: they hand-pick the cocoa growers they work with to ensure a supply of ideal beans. Such careful attention to ingredients has won Jaeger bushels of praise from both restaurant reviewers and sustainability advocates, as well as the trust of under-ripe tomatoes.

Customer Reviews

This place is delicious, the service is excellent, and I would definitely recommend it.

Embrace the "foodie" within you. This is gorgeous, wonderfully prepared food in a casually elegant setting staffed by professionals. We had a thoughtful 5 course tasting menu and had the wine pairing to go with. It was a lovely meal and we will be going back again soon.

The dinner was so perfect that I wished I would have bought more groupons. I will definitely buy some for gifts next time. Make sure you do the wine pairings which is an add-on but entirely worth it!
