The GOODS from Market by Jean-Georges
Vancouver, BC | On April 20, 2014, MARKET by Jean-Georges will be welcoming in Spring with an Easter Brunch fit for all ages. From an exclusive three-course brunch menu to a live jazz band and a Kids Zone hosted by Granville Island Toy Company, MARKET promises a fun, easy and sophisticated Easter for everyone.
The Easter Brunch menu prepared by Chef de Cuisine Montgomery Lau, highlights cuisine inspired by the classics of Jean-Georges’ “greatest hits” with fresh, locally produced ingredients emphasizing comfort and creativity–including new flavour combinations that explore spices from other regions, all while remaining close to home. The $45.00 brunch using locally sourced products, consists of a choice of appetizer, main and dessert with menu items such as Carpaccio of Beef and Smoked Mozzarella with Lime and Basil and Crunchy Roasted Halibut with Glazed Mushrooms with Green Chili.
A Children’s Menu will also be on hand with classic kid-friendly dishes such as Nutella Crepes ($8.00) and Scrambled Eggs with Bacon ($8.00). To ensure the children don’t miss out on the Easter fun, the Granville Island Toy Company will be setting up children’s tables and toys, a bouncy castle, and coordinating a visit from the Easter Bunny himself.

Freeway | Thing | What we like to constantly remind ourselves (and others) that we don’t have. There were, of course, numerous attempts to connect Vancouver to The Number One, including Project 200 and the (in)famous Strathcona plan which destroyed Hogan’s Alley. Also a prerequisite of Vancouverism.
Usage: “Our city is better than every other city in the world because we don’t have a freeway running through it…”
Finches | Place | Devotees of the West Pender/Strathcona locations of Finch’s cafe (home of the killer pear, prosciutto, blue cheese, and walnut sandwich).
