New this year, the Railtown chefs will be preparing a Rosemary-Crusted Lamb Leg, available as a premium add-on. This traditional Greek Easter protein is a cut above the rest, prepared medium alongside a mustard lamb jus. “Should you be able to ration leftovers, this makes for great sandwiches the next day,” shares Railtown Catering Chef and Co-owner Dan Olson. The lamb leg is available in two sizes, small (feeds 4-6, for $69.00), and large (feeds up to 10 for $119).
All orders must be placed by 10:00 am on Wednesday, March 31. Packages are available for pickup at Railtown Cafe’s flagship location, 397 Railway Street in Vancouver, on Sunday, April 4 or Monday, April 5, from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. Delivery will be available throughout the Lower Mainland for an additional charge.
Railtown Catering will be offering a special early bird offer; those that reserve a package before March 23, will receive a $40.00 Railtown Cafe gift card. Both small and large package orders are applicable to receive the early bird incentive.
As with all of Railtown’s holiday offerings, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Easter To-Go package will be donated directly to Mission Possible, a non-profit charity providing street-level care for those with immediate and critical needs in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside neighbourhood.
“While we may not be able to celebrate this year in a traditional sense, we believe there’s a lot of comfort to be found in this traditional culinary offering,” says Railtown Catering Chef and Co-owner Dan Olson. “We feel very privileged to be able to help make the holiday less stressful and give back to our community.”
Orders may be placed by calling 604-568-8811 or online.
