The GOODS from Fraîche

West Vancouver, BC | West Vancouver’s acclaimed Fraîche Restaurant is pleased to welcome Chef Nicholas Lim to the kitchen as Executive Chef and Director of Catering. In addition to his role at the restaurant, Chef Nik will be working closely with General Manager and Wine Director Paul Garbini to launch Fraîche Catering.

Classically trained at the Dubrulle Culinary Institute, Chef Nik quickly climbed the kitchen ranks at several of Vancouver’s influential restaurants including Caffe de Medici and the Hart House. At 25 years of age, Chef Nik became Executive Chef and Director of Operations at Gusto di Quattro, making him one of the youngest executive chefs in Vancouver.

Chef Nik’s philosophy is one that embraces simplicity while also masterfully blending texture, flavour and colour into every dish he creates, making this bright young chef an exciting fit for a restaurant that is renowned for attracting the best culinary talent in Canada. “Fraîche Restaurant offers an experience that celebrates the best of the west coast, both on the plate and out the window. It’s a daily inspiration to provide an unforgettable culinary experience for our guests every day at every occasion.” says Lim. In his new role, he replaces one of his culinary mentors, Carol Chow, who has stepped down to pursue a lifestyle change.

Renowned as one of West Vancouver’s most celebrated dining experiences, Fraîche Restaurant complements dishes that celebrate the best of Canada’s west coast with steadfast service and inspiring panoramic views. Fraîche was feted with Gold and Silver Awards for Best North Shore dining in the Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards (2012 and 2013) and was named one of Canada’s Top Ten Best New Restaurants of 2008 by enRoute magazine.
