The GOODS from Giovane Cafe
Vancouver, BC | Award-winning restaurant group Kitchen Table adds another member to its growing family (Ask For Luigi, Di Beppe, Farina a Legna, Pastificio di Luigi, Pizzeria Farina, Pourhouse) when it officially reopens the doors of giovane café in the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel, Friday, August 28.
Operating as a pop-up until the current climate stabilizes and Kitchen Table is able to renovate and unveil a reimagined concept, the new iteration of giovane offers a multifaceted space featuring a café, market and counter-service restaurant that will also be the temporary home for Pastificio di Luigi (‘Luigi’s Pasta Factory’), which relocates from its former location in Pourhouse.
Open from early morning to late night, giovane offers grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, pastries, espresso-based beverages — courtesy of the first Victoria Arduino ‘Eagle One’ espresso machine in North America — as well as Italian wine and bottled cocktails, Pastificio’s fresh and dry pasta and handmade sauces, Italian specialty ingredients in addition to cookbooks and pasta-making tools for the at-home chef.
“This is not just the latest evolution for Kitchen Table, but for giovane as well,” says Kitchen Table Executive Chef Alessandro Vianello. “We’re excited to embark on this first stage and can’t wait to introduce our guests to our fully realized vision for the space sometime next year.”
