While Victoria’s Foo Food empire expands across the Rockies, the Trump Hotel brings high-end Chinese restaurant Mott 32 to Vancouver.

Foo Food

Victoria’s Foo Food empire (Foo, Foo Ramen, Part and Parcel) has expanded across the Rockies with the opening (with local partner Mark Carrillo) of a new Foo on Calgary’s 4th Street. Expect the well-priced take on Asian street food (pad Thai, papaya salad, saag paneer) that has already brought in the crowds and created some nice buzz in Cliff Bungalow. 2015 4th St. SW, Calgary, calgary.foofood.ca

Mott 32

The brainchild of the juggernaut that is the Hong Kong-based Maximal Concepts group, the over-the-top-beautiful room looks to bring some elegance to the high-end Asian dining scene. Daily dim sum (Iberico pork and quail egg sui mai) and a wine list curated by the highly regarded Robert Stelmachuk round out the roster. 116 W Georgia St., Vancouver, trumphotels.com/vancouver
