The GOODS from Uva Wine Bar

Vancouver, BC | Admired for its sleek design, noteworthy wines, creative cocktails and focused Italian-inspired menu, Uva Wine Bar has long enjoyed a devout following by Night. Now it’s time to meet Uva by Day. The sophisticated wine bar is launching a new menu for Day, welcoming guests with artisanal sandwiches, traditional Italian brodos and bracing hits of rich, velvety espresso. Inspired by classic Italian cafes, Uva will be serving up Milan-meets-Vancouver cuisine. Think sandwiches wrapped in butcher paper — Braised Pork Shoulder spiked with apple bacon jam and salsa verde; Confit Chicken & Prosciutto with grilled radicchio, fig marmalade and Grana Padano; or Vegetale with grilled zucchini, eggplant, roasted garlic aioli, olives and goat cheese — traditional Italian Brodo made just the way Nonna would and Zeppole, hot Italian fritters filled with delicious seasonal flavours.

“The menu for Uva by Day is hearty, satisfying and approachable, but it’s still seriously good food,” says Executive Chef Faizal Kassam, whose rustic Italian cuisine at Uva and sister restaurant Cibo Trattoria soars thanks in part to sound relationships with local suppliers. “We’re matching classic Italian techniques and flavour profiles with incredible local ingredients. I’ve really enjoyed every step of creating this menu.”

This week also marks the introduction of an enticing new list of cocktails created by Bar Manager Lauren Mote, who joined the team at Uva in September. “With this selection, I’m aiming for ‘complexity within simplicity’,” says Mote. “We’ve gone back to basics, showcasing top-tier spirits, bitters and terrific house-made ingredients in these seasonal and classical cocktails.” Highlights of the list include: Stemmed, a luscious blend of Syrah, spirits and Denman bitters; Minnow Grog, made with Flor de Cana Nicaraguan rum, Falernum, lime, Plum & Rootbeer bitters; Liberation, with Pere Magloire Calvados, Campari, Fino sherry, Lillet, Cascade Celery bitters; the smooth Chartreuse Milkshake, with Citadelle gin, green Chartreuse, cacao, lime and orange, Malagasy Chocolate bitters, egg white; and Gin-Gin Donkey, a refreshing mix of Beefeater gin, sage, ginger wine, lime, Grapefruit & Hops bitters.
