Banc Cafe is a neighborhood bar restaurant located in a former 1920’s bank building. The décor has a 19th century Parisian aesthetic - dimly lit with chandeliers, copper table tops, textured, terracotta coloured walls and curved banquette seating. It created a great atmosphere for a buzzing Friday night.
The menu includes a selection of 'small plates' and 'big plates'. We ordered a range of small plates to share between our table of eight: a couple each of the tartare of tuna and avocado ($14), coconut shrimp ($14), goat cheese croquettes ($9) and homemade chicken dumplings ($12); and then we each ordered a plate individually as a main course. Popular choices were: shepherd's pie ($16), saute day-boat scallions and shrimp with smoked bacon and butternut risotto ($23), and warm goat's cheese and proscuitto de parma salad ($10).
With it being a Friday night, the bar section of the premises was very lively and we felt like we'd stumbled onto a bit of a happening place. The dining area is, however, sufficiently separated from the bar noise, so that it was easy enough to chat at the table.
Great food, great service. Big thumbs up!
