510 17 Ave. SW, Calgary
Who Chefs JP Pedhirney and Joe Sokoloff take the lead with the latest addition to the Concorde Group.
Why we’re excited Behind an ornate, nine-foot-tall wooden door, you’ll find the neighbourhood’s new local: snack on crossover palate- pleasers like hot dog bao and skewers of Thai sausage in the chic, tile-lined space. lulubar.ca
490 Pandora Ave., Victoria
Who The creators of Nubo Japanese Tapas and E:Ne Raw Seafood Sake Bar.
Why we’re excited The menu is based on hanjeongsik, the traditional 18th-century Korean emperor’s feast, so consider us royally excited. nubocera.com
1284 Robson St. and 2145 W 41 Ave., Vancouver; Aberdeen Centre, 4151 Hazelbridge Way, Richmond
Who An iconic Japanese pancake chain.
Why we’re excited Kyoto’s over-the-top fluffy breakfast offerings changed the way we felt about pancakes forever, and Gram heroically aims to bring the same experience to Metro Vancouver, with both sweet and savoury options on offer. instagram.com/gramcanada
Emerald Lake Lodge, 1 Emerald Lake Rd., Field, B.C.
Who Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts, champions of the luxe lodge experience.
Why we’re excited Perched on the lakeshore, Cilantro serves up house-made pizza and hearty chili made with bison from the resort’s own game ranch on an oversized, sun-soaked patio. crmr.com/emerald/dining
133 9 Ave. SW, Calgary
Who Hometown hero Bern Glatz (Ten Foot Henry, Anju) is the newly appointed executive chef; Dustin Makarenko (Hy’s, Ki Modern) steps in as GM.
Why we’re excited It’s the first new dining space added to the iconic Fairmont Palliser in 60 years, and beyond the family-style menu that taps Alberta’s farm bounty (like kohlrabi, pork belly and grits) there’s local design talent (Frank Architecture), too. hawthorndiningroom.ca
475 Howe St., Vancouver
Who Seán Heather, the man-with-a-plan behind Gastown’s most iconic snugs (Irish Heather, Salt Tasting Room).
Why we’re excited Heather’s leaning in to the history of Outcry’s former stock exchange location with the branding; we’re looking forward to similarly era-appropriate indulgences on the menu. openoutcry.ca
