by Andrew Morrison | Sad news from Ed Perrow, who co-owns The Fat Badger with Georgia Goritsas and chef Neil Taylor. The Coal Harbour/West End is shutting down after a 2.5 year year in the old La Gavroche address (1616 Alberni St.). Ed sent me the following message last night:
It is with some regret that I have to announce the Fat Badger has been sold and will be closing it’s doors permanently at the end of the month of January. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who came down to eat scotch eggs, Yorkshire puddings & roast dinner. Also those of you who came to drink pints of London Pride, Innis & Gunn & Guinness, while listening to The Rolling Stones, Tears for Fears & The Specials. It’s been fun and we will miss all of you and the old house on Alberni street.
Our last day of service will be on Sunday the 29th of January. The roast dinner on Sunday will be roast pork, (pork belly wrapped around the loin), crackling and apple sauce. Don’t forget it’s Robbie Burns on Wednesday January 25th and we will be serving delicious haggis with specials on Innis & Gunn and Robbie Burns single malt scotch. Reservations for both are recommended.
We thank everyone who has supported us over the last two and a half years and you never know, maybe there will be a sighting of the Badger in the future.
From all of us at The Fat Badger.
I’m going to miss the friendly pints and miniature Yorkshire puddings topped with roast beef, horseradish and gravy! If you can’t make it on the 29th for the roast feast, try to sneak in before for a drink and a bite.
