While I’ve been out of commission for the last few days, Michelle has been enjoying the opening of Nelson The Seagull in the heart of Gastown at 315 Carrall Street, bringing home sandwiches, treats, pestos, and kickass lemonades to cheer me up and out of my drug-induced stupor. When I saw some of these pictures, I scored a ride down for a bite and a proper look-see.
I love the finished, open concept product, and especially dig how young, enthusiastic owners Lee, Jodie and Jonathan have largely left the space’s old bones alone. Their menu is attractively simple and straightforward (limited to sandwiches, salads, soup, baked goods and such), but they do pretty much everything in house and offer an environment that makes one want to stick around. I’ll probably have more on it in the paper in a few weeks, but if you want some background on the joint to slake your curiosity, click here.
