755 Richards Street, Vancouver
Advice: Reservations suggested on game nights.
This is one of those hidden gems known for its comfort food, spacious two level dining room, a full bar in front and one of the nicest secluded patios in the city. Chef Simon McLeod and his team makes good food all from scratch, almost everything is made in house and the portions are quite large. I have dined here on many occasions including brunch on the patio. This time around I had dinner before a show where my friend and I shared the delicious Red Wine Braised Beef Cheek Poutine ($8), followed by the outstanding Duck Confit Salad ($15) sun-dried cherries, apricots, goat’s feta, candied pecans, preserved lemon tarragon vinaigrette; and the Cajun Chicken Pizza ($12).
The vast menu features salads, appetizers, a great line-up of burgers, pastas, pizzas, as well a selection of desserts. Additionally there is a large selection of cocktails as well as a happy hour menu, weekend brunch and a Gluten Free menu that is filled with more great dishes!
