New “Tractor Marine” Eatery Opens At The Foot Of The Art Deco Marine Building

I took a look inside the new Downtown location of Tractor Everyday Healthy Foods yesterday, just as owners Meghan and Steve Clarke were putting the finishing touches on the 60 seat, fully licensed restaurant.

“Tractor Marine” occupies the northeastern ground floor corner of the Marine Building, a towering Art Deco gem at 335 Burrard Street.  The interior is unrecognizable from when it used to be The Imperial, a Chinese seafood restaurant. Now it’s bright and airy and cathedral-like in certain spots, with plenty of natural light amplified by some really cool fixtures by Vancouver’s own Tangible Interaction. The design itself was a collaborative effort between the Clarkes and local firm Marrimor. Gorgeous bone structure goes without saying.

The food concept is identical to that at the original Tractor location in Kitsilano, which is to say health-conscious fast food – salads, sandwiches, soups, stews, etc. – all served cafeteria style and complimented by local beer and wine options (Blasted Church, 33 Acres, Bomber, among others).

The new eatery opened to the public this morning for lunch and dinner. Hours are 11am to 9:30pm, seven days a week. Take a closer look below…
