Last night I attended the opening party of The Homer Street Café & Bar on Homer Street in downtown Vancouver.
The beautiful room by the design team of Linus Lam, Denise Liu and Craig Stanghetta is going to become another people watchers paradise, they have blended heritage building elements with leather banquette in the upstairs Cockpit as it’s been coined, with white tile elements, its modern and energetic.
The restaurant is owned by Lilliana L. De Cotiis and the Executive Chef is Marc-Andre Choquette and the restaurant Chef is Tret Jordan. These experienced folk are also behind Tableau Bar Bistro in the Loden Hotel. They have got the same crew running this new eatery, you will also find Head Bartender J.S. Dupuis and Manager Steven Wright.
The star attraction in the kitchen is the $50,000 Grande Flamme Olympia Rotisserie oven, presently it’s one of two in use in Canada–this chicken rotisserie can hold up to 36 chickens at one time.
As guests arrived, cocktails along with white and rose wine were served, there was a nice Cheeses and Charcuterie selection along with a tasty roasted nut mix. There were skewers of chicken and potatoes to dip in gravy as well as delicious chicken wings with a chimichurri sauce that will delight patrons. I also loved the chocolate pudding dessert that was served in the Cockpit.
The menu is Rotisserie-inspired, has a beautiful outdoor patio, and private dining room dubbed the “Cockpit” .
Homer Street Café & Bar serves brunch, lunch, dinner daily, located at 888 Homer Street in Vancouver and by phone 604- 428 4299
