About the Author

Andreas Seppelt


Andreas has spent more than twenty-five years in the restaurant business, first as a French-service waiter for Hy's Mansion in Vancouver and then after a lengthy stint of writing in Mexico City, returning to Vancouver in 1998, to begin anew. His first restaurant, Bukowski's was on Commercial Drive in Vancouver's Little Italy and was much loved in bohemian circles (particularly the jazz and literary communities). This was followed by the sweetly iconic fish shack, called Go Fish, which opened in 2004. In 2008, Andreas opened Les Faux Bourgeois with master builder Stephan Gagnon and designer Scott Cohen. 'Les Fauxbo' has quickly become a city-favourite, its arrival marking the beginning of a new wave of bistro which is modest and playful and gives homage to it's predecessors in Montreal and Paris."
