The ever-evolving Restaurant Graveyard series looks back at the countless, long-shuttered establishments that helped to propel Vancouver’s food and drink forward. May they never be forgotten!
Wild Rice was a fixture on the edge of Chinatown, pairing Modern Chinese food with cocktails and wine from 2001 to 2014.
Closed in September of 2017, this neighbourhood icon enjoyed an 11 year run with its sprawling patio overlooking Maple Tree Square.
Today we remember Sean Heather's Bitter Tasting Room, interring it for all eternity in Vancouver's Restaurant Graveyard.
Today we remember Cork & Fin (and its freshly shucked oysters), interring it for all eternity in Vancouver's Restaurant Graveyard.
Open from 2015 to early 2017, Latab was a short-lived gift to local foodies from chef Kris Barnholden and wine pro Eryn Dorman.
Today we inter the tiny, 20 seat vegetarian restaurant known as The Parker into Vancouver's Restaurant Graveyard.
The 30 seat "Cafeteria" lasted two years at 2702 Main St. (now Burdock & Co.), featuring an eclectic menu with no dish exceeding $20.
This interesting eatery on Powell St. (its name a portmanteau of "bamboo" and "buddha") now lies in Vancouver's Restaurant Graveyard.
Opened in 2010 by the owners of nearby Salt Tasting Room, the Spanish-inspired 21 seat 'Judas Goat' lasted 3 years in Blood Alley
Brian Fowke and Tim Keller's sprawling, 150-seat Metro restaurant boasted a great design and a tourist-magnet location, but barely lasted a year.
Dunlevy Snackbar opened in 2010 and transitioned from coffee and baked goods to cocktails and Korean pancakes. It closed in 2015
Kids were encouraged to run guiltlessly, joyously amok at this memorable (if often outrageously loud) counter-service cafe off The Drive.
Daniel Boulud's DB Bistro Moderne opened in the midst of the 2008 financial meltdown and closed to the frustration of many in 2011.
In this addition of the Restaurant Graveyard, we inter one of the most impactful Mediterranean eateries in Vancouver's history.
With the help of many diners and restaurant industry veterans, we bring you this growing token of remembrance!
