The GOODS from Pourhouse

Vancouver, BC | Gastown cocktail-and-comfort-food enclave Pourhouse will give guests a new reason to rise and shine every weekend by adding a delicious new menu of food and drink options for brunch starting on Mother’s Day weekend, Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12.

Available from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in addition to its regular happy hour and dinner services, the Pourhouse brunch menu was designed by Executive Chef Alessandro Vianello, who recently joined the Kitchen Table Restaurant group that owns and operates Pourhouse. As a complement to Pourhouse’s live music program offered nightly Sunday to Thursday, guests will also be able to enjoy a side of live music with brunch each Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.

The brunch menu offers sweet and savoury small plates such as cured duck (compressed melon, arugula, fresh basil), tuna conserva (olive oil, capers, dried tomatoes, sourdough) and carrot cake bomboloni (carrot and date filling, cream cheese icing) as well as core fan favourites like the Scotch egg (spicy mayo), devils on horseback (dehydrated plums stuffed with Gruyère and wrapped in bacon, housemade barbecue sauce) and the Pourhouse Caesar (anchovy and roasted schmaltz dressing, Hickory Sticks, Parmesan), in addition to larger dishes like:

– peameal bacon sandwich (mustard and maple mayo, potatoes or green salad);
– the classic (breakfast sausage or double-smoked bacon, poached eggs, potatoes, toast);
– mushroom frittata (eggplant caponata, Parmesan, arugula salad);
– veggie hash (potato, celery root, zucchini chutney, cabbage, cashew & cauliflower purée);
– French toast (rum & pineapple upside down sauce, Chantilly cream);
– Cotechino sausage and beans (‘baked’ gigante beans, poached eggs, salsa verde, sourdough);
– 6 oz flat iron or 16 oz bison ribeye steak & eggs (potatoes, two eggs, chimichurri, sourdough).

Behind the pine, Pourhouse Bar Manager Adam Domet will stir up a selection of zero-proof ‘temperance’ drinks such as Arnold Palmers (iced tea, lemonade) and Almond Bucks (almond, lime, ginger beer) as well as classic-meets-refined, boozy brunch libations such as:

– PH Mimosa (sparkling wine, Aperol, cantaloupe, lime);
– PH Bloody Mary (sangrita, choice of Beefeater gin, Altos tequila, Buffalo Trace bourbon or Wheatley vodka, chili salt, pickled bean);
– Breakfast Negroni (Campari, Rosso vermouth, Torrontés);
– Rosa Fizz (Cocchi Rosa vermouth, grapefruit cordial, seltzer);
– ‘Coffee Kickstarters’ served hot with hand-whipped cream or long and cold brewed in ‘Canadian’ (Forty Creek whisky cream), ‘Spanish’ (Torres 5 brandy), ‘Irish’ (Bushmills Black Bush Irish whiskey), ‘Italian’ (Amaro Montenegro) and ‘French’ (Grand Marnier) varieties.

ABOUT POURHOUSE | Launched in a turn-of-the-century heritage building in the heart of Gastown in 2009, Pourhouse quickly established itself as one of Vancouver’s most beloved bars and restaurants thanks to its signature approach to cocktails and comfort food, authentic décor, warm, convivial atmosphere and live music performances Sunday to Thursday. Behind a bar fashioned from 120-year-old planks of reclaimed Douglas Fir, cocktails showcase old-fashioned soul in variations both simple and ornate with a particular focus on whiskey, a wide list of wines hailing from Old and New World alike encourage exploration and a range of craft beer that represents the true ale craftsmanship of BC and the Pacific Northwest all complement a mouthwatering menu of classic-yet-refined snacks, share plates and mains.
