The GOODS from Wildebeest
Vancouver, BC | Wildebeest has launched its new brunch menu. Staying true to their nose-to-tail concept, the Gastown restaurant is serving a fresh, meaty take on this midday meal.

The restaurant will also have a weekly tourtiere special.
Along with their food options, Wildebeest is offering a special brunch cocktail menu with items such as the Campari Rosa – apple cider, orange juice and Campari; the Gastown 75 – sparkling wine, grapefruit juice, Aperol and honey; and the Corpse Reviver & Tonic – gin, Lillet, Cointreau, lemon, Absinthe and tonic.
