About Blacktail Florist
Tucked among Gastown’s trademark brick buildings, Blacktail Florist shines a spotlight on some of BC’s overlooked and most humble ingredients. Wild edibles are the inspiration behind daily dishes, while a range of thoughtfully selected wines by the glass and bottle showcase the best varietals from our region.
Outdoor meets indoor in the welcoming, woodland-inspired interior designed by studio Ste. Marie and guests are encouraged to unwind over an adventurous and satisfying meal in a delicate and warm setting.
The name Blacktail Florist represents the restaurant’s commitment to wild, local, beautifully curated food. Representing the masculine spirit, the name Blacktail is taken from an indigenous deer primarily found on the West Coast, which speaks to the rough and wild ingredients incorporated into the dishes. Symbolizing the feminine, the word Florist evokes a gatherer of flowers and organic materials, who arranges these items in playful and attractive ways.
Blacktail Florist offers an approachable and appealing wine list, guiding guests through a modern collection of notable and rare local varietals that complement flavours and aromas from the kitchen.
Blacktail Florist’s interior design draws its inspiration from BC’s wild natural beauty. Vancouver designer Craig Stanghetta of Ste. Marie Art + Design invites us to escape to the forest, using organic and natural materials to evoke the comfort and freshness of a floral woodland grove. The minimalist space is lined with grand art deco windows containing built in vitrines; gently frosted, they house wild blossoms and other oddities. Guests dine among fresh living greenery and warm indigenous woods softly lit by custom, handcrafted lighting by Good Animal that cascade from the restaurant’s ceilings and walls.
Press & Accolades
“Don’t Go to Blacktail Florist looking for a spring arrangement. For food made from the best B.C. has to offer, however, this Gastown eatery should be your next dining destination.” — Anya Levykh, WE Vancouver, April 24, 2014
“Open since April, Blacktail Florist knows its greens—and proteins, too. The Vancouver restaurant boasts share plates aplenty, all conceptualized by executive chef and co-owner Jimmy Stewart (previously of Top Chef Canada and Whistler’s Bearfoot Bistro).” — Katie Nanton, NUVO Magazine, May 25, 2014
