Dedicated locavore chef – Chris Whittaker of Forage – is solidifying the West End as one of Vancouver’s most dynamic foodie neighbourhoods with his new restaurant in the high-ceilinged iconic space next door to Forage on Robson at Jervis.
The new restaurant is called Timber, and the menu reads like a roadmap of Canadian comfort food. Home of the bison burger and deep-fried cheese curds, other daily features include pea meal bacon chops, bannock, elk tourtiere, and fish & chips. Add a brown butter tart for dessert and you’ve had yourself some fine Canadian home cooking.
The design of the room is a nostalgic nod to British Columbia’s rich timber history and the salt of the earth who built this province, one two-by-four at a time.
The 1900 square foot space boasts an 18 seat communal table, bench and window-side seating, and features reclaimed barn board from Glorious Organics Farm in Aldergrove. The space is designed by blacksmith/polymath Dustin Pritchard (check out his behind the scene photos from his workshop on Instagram @blacksmithdustin).
“We have two purposes at Timber – to celebrate Canadian cuisine and to have a lot of fun while we’re at it!” states Chef Chris Whittaker.
If you’re looking for a place to grab a craft beer or a single malt and a mushroom gravy poutine while you curse the hockey refs on TV, Timber is where you want to be.
The first puck dropped in November 2015 and it’s off to a great start welcoming our West End neighbours. Open daily until late.
