The Pear Tree is an oasis of understated elegance on a well-worn stretch of East Hastings. The menu relies on sustainable, organic, local bounty assembled into a year-round offering as refined as the 50-seat room. To start, try the ultra-pure tomato-gin soup, deceptive in its simplicity, or a votive-like cup of prawn cappuccino, a rich, salty concoction with lumps of spot prawn hovering near the bottom. For mains, the rainbow trout from Mission’s Miracle Springs is a revelation: pan roasted with pomme dauphine and butternut squash. The best tables are in the middle of the room, where clear sightlines into the gleaming white kitchen offer views of award-winning chef Scott Jaeger working his magic.
