Chef Sarah Stewart recently joined The Donnelly Group who runs The New Oxford as well as many other restaurants and bars across the country; she joined Executive Chef Alvin Pillay. I enjoyed a taste of their newly launched brunch menu earlier in the summer.
Banana bread is complimentary with the meal and it was a delicious start.
BK Block Party ($12) was a tasty cocktail with NY Distilling Dorothy Parker Gin, watermelon juice, lime juice, ginger honey syrup, Somersby cider, and a wedge of lime.
Yogurt & Granola ($12) with a selection of fruits, preserves, honeyed Greek yogurt, granola, and toasted seeds.
Huevos Rancheros ($15) it’s classic dish with a cheese tortilla that resembled a quesadilla, avocado, spicy chickpea and yam, sunny eggs (usually comes with these eggs, however I had mine without the obligatory eggs), and Cotija cheese.
Nola French Toast ($14) Nola “stuffed” French Toast with fruit and the bourbon syrup which was outstanding and my favourite of the dishes I tried.
The New Oxford is located at 1144 Homer Street in Vancouver. Reservations may be needed, and you can call them at (604) 609-0901. You can find them on twitter and Instagram @NewOxfordVan
