News from Scout support Relish GastroPub & Bar

Vancouver, BC | Amidst the chaos and construction in Nelson Square, Relish Restaurant has been transformed into Relish GastroPub & Bar – a relaxed and unpretentious neighbourhood gastropub serving contemporary pub fare and Canadian comfort food.

While the Relish name remains (a nostalgic nod to the restaurant’s loyal clientele) the rest is entirely new. The once massive 160-seat restaurant has been completely gutted and rebuilt into a casual 85-seat pub. Vancouver’s M-Studio (Hapa Izakaya, Burgoo, Earl’s Paramount) has designed a stylish room befitting a Canadian pub, with a slate-tiled bar surrounded by deep dark woods and plenty of rich brown leather.

The new Relish is a casual and comfortable neighborhood watering hole that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but is serious about great food. The new menu, created by Chef Patchen Gallagher (Deacon’s Corner, Glowbal Grill), features “Patchen-sized” portions of contemporary pub fare, and includes dishes like a Shortrib Shepherd’s Pie, Gnocchi Poutine, Duck Fat Steak Fries, Tourtière, Duck Confit Salad and Fried Oysters – with nothing over $15.

Relish GastroPub & Bar is a relaxed and unpretentious neighborhood gastropub that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but is serious about great food.

Vancouver’s M-Studio has designed a stylish room befitting a Canadian pub, with a slate-tiled bar surrounded by deep dark woods and plenty of rich brown leather.

Relish’s menu, created by Chef Patchen Gallagher, features “Patchen-sized” portions of contemporary pub fare and Canadian comfort food, and includes dishes like a Shortrib Shepherd’s Pie, Gnocchi Poutine, Duck Fat Steak Fries, Tourtière, Duck Confit Salad and Fried Oysters – with nothing over $15.

There’s also a “Market Bar” that features fresh oysters (which are “a-buck-a-shuck” between 3 pm and 6 pm), as well as artisan cheeses, and locally sourced and house-cured charcuterie.

Relish is open for lunch Monday to Friday, and dinner seven days a week, and thanks to its liquor-primary license, is open for drinks until 2 am Sunday through Thursday, and 3 am on the weekends. On Friday and Saturday nights, after 10 pm, local DJs take the helm and Relish’s reputation for being a lively late-night hangout lives on.
