The GOODS from Shaughnessy Restaurant
Vancouver, BC | Shaughnessy Restaurant, with its spectacular 55-acre garden vistas, has been gearing up for the fall season with some exciting news. We are pleased to announce the hiring of General Manager Toni Hulsch as well as Executive Chef Sean Sloan and his kitchen brigade. Under their guidance, Shaughnessy Restaurant looks forward to moving in a fresh direction that is sure to delight your taste buds.
Sean Sloan, a Montreal born and West Coast trained chef with over 6 years experience with the Sequoia Group, has created a fall menu focused on elevating modern classics by sourcing produce and protein from small, local, and quality suppliers. On Monday September 21st, the fall menu launches.
Brunch will continue to focus on West Coast comfort classics. Popular dishes include a crab and shrimp croissant, a grilled vegetable hash with two free range poached eggs and rich hollandaise, or a steelhead salmon burger served with a house-made tartar aioli. Lunch will have even more choices ranging from salads, small plates, soups, sandwiches, and pasta. One of the kitchen’s favorite is the Spaghetti Bolognese, just like grandma used to make. The menus (lunch, brunch, and dinner) cater to everyone – including kids. Dinner has also taken a cue from fall with a menu defined as “luxury comfort cuisine.”
Start the night off with charcuterie, which includes a selection of cheeses and cured meats, house smoked olives, hummus and herbed crisps. Another highlight is the scallop, bacon, and endive salad, dressed in maple vinaigrette. Mouth-watering mains include an assortment of tender cuts from the grill, pasta dishes including a butternut squash and mushroom risotto with truffle, or brick chicken, tender off the bone with a warm potato salad. The menu reflects the changing colours of autumn leaves, the chill in the air, and the brilliant, warm flavours of the season.
In addition, Shaughnessy Restaurant has also launched their own version of Happy Hour happening seven days a week between 3 and 5 pm. Select menu items (like the salt & pepper squid or house made fries with truffle and sea salt) are 50% off. Who doesn’t love an after work thirst quenching beverage with some cheap & tasty bites?

About Shaughnessy Restaurant
Shaughnessy Restaurant at VanDusen Gardens is located only minutes from downtown Vancouver, but upon arrival it’s as though you’ve entered another world. Our 145 seat garden restaurant provides a retreat like no other – casual elegance, soothing ambiance, and picturesque garden vistas. In addition to the restaurant, we also have a 75 seat covered patio, which has been said to be one of the best patios in the city. Whether you want to meet friends for lunch, enjoy brunch with family, spend an evening overlooking the gardens accompanied by a brilliant dinner, or have a spontaneous happy hour cocktail, Shaughnessy Restaurant is a must-see for visitors to Vancouver and residents alike. 55 acres of vast year-round gardens, representing the northern and southern hemispheres await you and drench your dining experience in colour and beauty.
Working with reputable local suppliers such as Fresh Roots Farms and Oceanwise, Shaughnessy uses fresh, organic, and seasonal ingredients to create an elegant West coast menu that tastes impeccable. Chef Sean Sloan incorporates his extensive background in Pacific Rim influences to create a menu focused on elevated comfort food.
We cater to a variety of events throughout the year – wedding receptions, anniversaries, birthday, bar/bat Mitzvahs, family reunions, and corporate meetings. Exclusive restaurant bookings are available, and we can accommodate a variety of group sizes up to 200 people.
We teamed up with several renowned interior designers including Wade King, to create an airy yet intimate ambiance and décor. The slate and wood floor is reclaimed from a 1910 Vancouver warehouse which adds old-world charm and warmth. Intimate booths line the back walls with a beautiful Rhododendron painting taking presence above. French doors provide the opportunity for a private group dining room while still maintaining the bright openness of the restaurant. White shingles on the walls, ample skylights, and potted plants bring the lush Botanical Garden indoors, while floor-to-ceiling sheer drape swaths add drama, elegance and intimacy to the room.
Reservations recommended. Please call 604-261-0011 or visit our website to book online.
