1223 Robson Street, Vancouver
Advice: Takes reservations.
A large an inviting room situated off of bustling Robson, the décor is inspired of mid-century design with warm tones of walnut and Calcutta marble, lots of banquets and communal tables throughout. There is a coffee bar for the morning, a bar area as well as the dining room where they serve breakfast, lunch, dinner thru late night. Chef Tannis Smith has retooled the menu offering many comforting classics with her unique spin. I visited for dinner on my own, having the Crispy Parmessan Cauliflower Poppers ($11) with a couple of tasty dips! To follow I had the Moroccan Braised Lamb Shank Curry ($22) a light tomato based house made blend of ginger, garlic, cumin, jalapenos, cinnamon, a mix of smoked paprikas and spices. Served on Pomegranate dirty rice.
The all-day menu features a good selection of appetizers as well as salads, handhelds along with seafood and a selection of pasta dishes. There is also an extensive brunch menu filled will sorts of dishes including Marilyn’s Omelet, Horizon Hash and Handle Your Scramble.
