The West just got a whole lot tastier.
10359 104 Street, EdmontonWho: Kevin Cam (owner of Baijiu and North 53)Why we’re excited: The no-rest-for-the-wicked Foodie of the Year will be opening a small cocktail bar within Baijiu (also a cocktail bar) that’s designed to look like Hong Kong under British rule.
2010 Government Street, VictoriaWho: Matt Phillips (founder and head brewer)Why we’re excited: The brewery has a new tasting room, tour area and retail store in the works, while behind the scenes they’re building a state-of-the-art bottle-washing facility in order to reuse their bottles (as opposed to simply recycling them).
802 49 Avenue SW, CalgaryWho: Chef Ryan Blackwell (formerly of Coast and Bin 941 Tapas Parlour) and partner Josh Brennand (Catch, Notable and The Nash)Why we’re excited: Locally sourced cuisine cherry-picked from all over Canada—think Maple Hills Farms-roasted chicken with cashew romesco and acorn squash, and Carmen Creek short-rib bison with saffron parsnip purée.
181 Carrall Street, VancouverWho: Chefs Jack Chen, Nin Rai and Lee Cooper (L’Abattoir)Why we’re excited: This new 4,100-square-foot Gastown haunt is a modern spin on the classic fish house with a full bar and (yes!) street-side patio.
Ledgeview Centre, 9707 110 Street, EdmontonWho: Chef Scott Downey (formerly of Michelin-starred Daniel in NYC, Noma in Denmark, Wildebeest in Vancouver)Why we’re excited: The returning Edmonton-born chef opens his first restaurant, which pays homage to the places he’s lived with seasonal ingredients at the forefront.
