5 New Restaurants to Check Out Across the West
Elevated pub food, casual Middle Eastern fare and more hot rooms now open in Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.
1325 Blanshard Street, Victoria
Why we’re excited Purportedly a fresh and faithful take on Middle Eastern food with that Tacofino touch. Arch motifs, neon signage and bold colours are going to make for a cool room, too.
777 Douglas Street, Victoria
Why we’re excited It channels a 1950s L.A. lounge and will immediately rise to the forefront of the capital’s must-visit watering holes.
3296 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Why we’re excited Just up the street from Fraserhood central, get ready for a sports bar with seriously elevated food (and a wraparound patio).
340 17 Avenue SW, Calgary
Why we’re excited Oft-under-represented Bengali cuisine takes centre stage, with a cosmopolitan room from artist Maya Gohill (her very first interior design project).
5. Die Pie
11215 Jasper Avenue NW, Edmonton
Why we’re excited Edmonton’s first plant-based pizzeria is serving up Neapolitan-style pies and sold-separately artisanal vegan cheeses like truffle brie and raw gorgonzola.
