First Taste of Nosh Downtown Vancouver

IMG_6106

I toured the new Nosh that opened in Telus Garden in downtown Vancouver, this new dining concept from the Global Group features a one-of-a-kind grab n’ go eatery and pâtisserie. Transitioning from a bakery in the morning, to a salad and panini bar complete with fresh pastas in the afternoon, to a destination for cocktails and late night bites in the evening, Nosh is the place that locals and visitors alike will want to keep discovering again and again.

The irresistible dessert showcase takes the place of honour at Nosh, with offerings including artisanal pastries, macarons, truffles and other handcrafted creations by acclaimed pastry chef Elie Nehme. Additional daily options suited to those on-the-go include customized salads made to order, fresh pastas, small plates and the daily roast sandwich, plus a European-style cocktail hour every weekday from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., featuring complimentary tapas with each beverage ordered from the $6 cocktail hour drink menu.

For busy professionals, Nosh offers office lunch packages at $10 per person, including customizable housemade sandwiches, salads and wraps, with a soon-to-launch online ordering system allowing for quick and easy meal pick-up from self-serve shelves.

“We’re thrilled for Glowbal Restaurant Group to join the TELUS family with the launch of Nosh,” added Yacoub. “The first building in Canada built to LEED Platinum standard, TELUS Garden is paving the way for a new wave of beautiful, modern and technologically advanced tourist destinations in Vancouver. We designed Nosh precisely to meet this elevated standard and appeal to both visitors and locals alike.”

Fresh and modern, the 1,600 square-foot open concept room spills organically into the TELUS Garden lobby with a loose border of spun metal pendant lights, offering a welcoming entry point to the building. The design balances warm walnut millwork with the contemporary appeal of glossy black marble cladding, and includes fully retractable glass doors that open onto a modern patio. From a glass tile ceiling that glows at night with alternating coloured lights, to comfortable tableside and sofa seating, plus a fire table to ward off evening chills, the patio adds a cozy touch to TELUS Garden’s array of of advanced amenities.
