Anticipated Openings

October 5, 2008 

On this page we catalogue Vancouver’s first looks at new and exciting restaurants. Businesses don’t pay to get on this list. It is curated by Scout’s editorial team so not every upcoming joint cracks it. It is how we weed out the chaff and keep track of the wheat. Click on any of them to get the skinny. If you know of a restaurant or food business in the works that you consider worth checking out, email andrew [at] scoutmagazine.ca with the details
