Vancouver, BC | Winter is almost here, which means it’s time to start planning for the Holidays and New Year’s! Whether you’re searching for an atmospheric locale for the office holiday party, or seeking an intimate space to close out the year with the apple of your eye, Burdock & Co’s dining room and family-style dinners will elevate your holiday feasts from decent to dazzling.

Ethically sourced and farm-to-table, Burdock & Co’s menu transforms with the seasons, providing diners with fresh, approachable fare meant to be enjoyed by everyone at the table.

mouthwatering menu is complemented by key components to any holiday gathering: an award-winning natural wine list as well as craft beer and cocktails. The eatery’s weekend brunch – recognized as the best in the city in the 2018 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards – invites friends and family to escape the cold and indulge in daytime favourites like vegan avocado smash, French pancakes and rice congee.
