Vancouver, BC | Today, Tableau Bar Bistro is pleased to officially make two long-awaited announcements: Henry Wong is promoted to Executive Sous Chef and Alain Canuel is named new restaurant manager. Diners can expect a fresh focus on creativity in the kitchen thanks to Chef Henry, while Alain brings a charismatic leadership style and a passion for exceeding guests’ expectations. Armed with decades of experience and possessing undeniable talent, both are welcomed assets to Tableau Bar Bistro’s award-winning team.

A proud local, Executive Sous Chef Henry Wong was born and raised in Vancouver and spent much of his childhood at his parent’s restaurants, learning his way around a kitchen at a young age. He honed his skills at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in Vancouver and finished a formal three-year apprenticeship at Lumière restaurant, training under chef Marc-André Choquette and chef Rob Feenie. He continued his culinary journey in San Francisco, Hong Kong and Montreal, where he worked at various Michelin-starred restaurants learning from renowned chefs, such as chef Corey Lee. In 1998, Chef Henry helped open Cibo Trattoria and Uva Wine Bar before settling at the Loden Hotel in 2008, again under the wing of Marc-André Choquette, Executive Chef (Chef MAC) at Tableau Bar Bistro.

Upon arrival, all guests will be informed of the hotel’s participation and will be asked for their voluntary participation in Earth Hour 2012. A Glowstick Turndown Service will be offered and guests will be encouraged to switch off all lights and electronics in their rooms from 8:30pm to 9:30pm. Also, the Loden will switch off one of their two elevators and will encourage guests and staff to take the stairs. At Tableau, guests will enjoy a candlelight dinner service accompanied by the talents of live musician, Josh Minsky – showing that being green can be romantic. For this special occasion, Earth Hour features and cocktails will be served. Read more
