Robson’s Canadiana-Themed Timber Celebrating 1st Birthday With Nov. 22nd Party


The GOODS from Timber

Vancouver, BC | Timber is celebrating its first birthday this fall. Come and taste our new fall menu and join us for some birthday fun on Tuesday November 22nd. The party gets started at 6pm and goes until late!

And by the way….did you know? We’re getting close to serving up our 10,000th bison burger! It’s true! Will it be you?

Here’s what we’re cookin’ up for our birthday celebration on Tuesday November 22nd:

– Our famous Timber Canadian photo booth.
– Live music with our own Pascal a couple of sets starting at 6pm.
– A Beaver Tail Dessert ‘Bar’ where you can customize your own beaver tail.
– House-made Timber ‘1st birthday’ cake at 8pm. Did we mention it has ganache and bacon?!

For fall we’ve brought back some of the same Canadian comfort food classics you remember from last year- the year we opened. Elk Tourtiere is back! This lard crusted wine-soaked, spice-laden delicious treat is one of our faves. It’s soon to be one of yours too.

Enjoy other delicious treats like the maple baked beans, apple pie topped with salted caramel ice cream, smoked potato skins with Little Qualicum Cheeseworks blue cheese, Caesar salad with pork jowl chips, and a side stripe prawn club sandwich with duck liver pate, prawn mayo, lettuce, tomato and house-made sourdough. We’ve also enhanced our mac and cheese with bone marrow and potato croquettes, and stuffed our perogies with roasted Ambrosia apples, and Farmhouse cheddar- we top those babies with sour cream, smoked onions and sauerkraut. We still have our great Turtle Valley Bison Co. burger with caramelized onion, bacon, pickles and cheddar. Feeling really hungry? Double-patty it up.

We have a lot to celebrate!

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.
