DINER: Powell’s Much Anticipated Cuchillo Set To Open Softly Over The Long Weekend
by Andrew Morrison | The Latin-themed “Cuchillo” (Spanish for “Knife”) at 261 Powell St. has its occupancy and liquor permits all set. The highly anticipated 93 seat restaurant from John Cooper and former Cobre co-owner/chef Stu Irving will open for friends and family tomorrow (Saturday) night with soft opening evenings to follow over the long weekend. For all the details on what to expect, click here. You can also check out the menu (draft) mixed in with the photos below. Dig the rear nook (burgundy couch), the lengthy hightop communal table facing the long bar (ably manned by this year’s Vancouver Magazine Bartender of the Year, “H”) with its block bench seating, and the artwork by Erin Sinclair. It all looks awesome. Break a leg, fellas!
