Vancouver, BC | This Sunday evening our beloved Oakwood burger will be peacefully laid to rest. Due to the powers above, we are unable to serve the beef cooked to our guests’ desired temperature. This leaves us no other choice but to reinvent a new trademark burger to launch on Tuesday February 25th. A Celebration Of Life will be held the evening of Sunday, February 23rd to commemorate the Oakwood burger. On the menu since we opened our doors, it has been responsible for bringing many of our customers back to the Oakwood time and time again. And helping us to pay tribute to the burger will be one of the Lower Mainland’s fastest growing indie folk rock bands. The show starts at 8:30pm and cover is only $10. So come and commemorate the dish that built The Oakwood. Although the evening’s focus will be on the burger, we will also have our kale salad, poutine, and beef tartar on offer. As always, we open at 5pm and will be serving late. Learn more about the restaurant after the jump… Read more

About the Oakwood Canadian Bistro

The Oakwood Canadian Bistro is a casual neighbourhood room specializing in down-to-earth Canadian fare. The restaurant’s name pays homage to the reclaimed wood materials used in the space, as well as Kitsilano’s tree-themed street names. The small, straightforward menu showcases honest Canadian fare influenced by French techniques.

The Oakwood Canadian Bistro’s food philosophy is focused on fresh, house-made dishes crafted from locally sourced products. The seasonally changing menu caters to market availability and the sustainability of the products. All meats are organic, local and free of hormones and antibiotics, while the seafood is sustainable, seasonal and Ocean Wise certified. From the breads and pastas to the butchery and sauces, all products are made in-house with quality and consistency. At the bar, guests will find an excellent selection of 11 local craft beers, classic cocktails and an expertly chosen wine list.

The Oakwood Canadian Bistro welcomes with a comfortable, down-to-earth room designed by Mike Shea, who was inspired by restaurants he has experienced on his travels. Shea worked with SSDG Interiors and master carpenter Roman Mann to help implement his vision for the 85-seat room, which features key design elements — including a 16-seat communal table — made from reclaimed fir, oak and cedar. The welcoming patio seats 15 guests. Serving fresh, honest food in a casual neighbourhood environment, this modest Kitsilano room encourages diners to gather around the central communal table with old and new friends, sip BC craft beers and linger over one of Chef Michael Robbins’ seasonally driven dishes.
