Seen In Vancouver #358: Anatomy Of A Pop-Up Supper At Gastown’s Nelson The Seagull

We slipped into Nelson The Seagull last night to check out the Picked & Sprout pop-up dinner team set up for the first of their two Gastown suppers (there’s one tonight, too). Because a pop-up by it’s very nature is temporary and spontaneous – coordination, speed and flexibility are key. The crew took over the space a mere two hours before dinner guests arrived and seriously hustled to transform the popular day-only cafe in to a Spring-themed dinner gig. There are still a few seats left for tonight. Score them by email pickedandscrumped [at] for or call 778-318-6406.

The super extra great thing about this meal is that every plate served features a hand-foraged or home-grown ingredient. It celebrates the freshest and greenest flavours of Spring, so think wild mushrooms, the seasons’ first wild flowers, real cultured butter, hand gathered ramps, fresh nettles, fiddleheads, and more.
