Joining them on April 19th is Ned Bell, Ocean Wise executive chef at Vancouver Aquarium and a long-time sustainable seafood ambassador.

Nomad (noh-mad) noun | A member of a people or tribe that has no permanent abode but moves about from place to place, usually seasonally and often following a traditional route or circuit according to the state of the pasturage or food supply.
At Nomad, we strive to follow the same constructs by creating and nurturing relationships with our region’s farmers and suppliers. Menus are created using a combination of this season’s fresh crops and last season’s bounty that has been preserved in house. Our chefs know the origin and content of every dish we serve in order to provide peace of mind to our guests. Simple yet stylish, we strive to tell a story with every dish and every drink we serve. We want to teach people how to take advantage of this amazing part of the world.
The food is paired with local micro-brews, an all-BC wine list and cocktails created by award-winning bartender Matt van Dinther and served in a comfortable atmosphere accented with R&B and hip hop classics. Live music on Fridays, DJs on Mondays, brunch on weekends, happy hour twice daily.
Seasonal, Sustainable, Respectful.
