News from Scout supporters “C”, Raincity Grill, and NU

Vancouver, BC | Vancouver will be feeding approximately 50,000 officials, media, volunteers and of course hungry athletes during next month’s Winter Games. That figure doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands of visitors and spectators who will also be searching for supper. Many restaurants are booked for Olympic business already which means that getting to, parking at and finding a table at your favorite local haunt might be tough come February. So where will Vancouverites go for local gastronomy during the games?

Enter the Kambolis group. Harry Kambolis, owner of Raincity Grill, C Restaurant and nu restaurant + lounge, has set aside parts of each dining room so locals can enjoy gold medal gastronomy throughout the month of February. What’s more is that his culinary teams have created menus to match. Please find attached the Games inspired food (and cocktail) menus for each of the restaurants.

Raincity Grill, C and nu will be open for regular hours throughout the games and will also be serving their respective a la carte menus. As an added incentive simply remember that all three restaurants are in areas with no traffic restrictions and both C and nu have free parking.  Perfect for a story on where locals will dine during the games. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call (778-893-3447) or email. Read more
