New Location Of Meat & Bread To Open On Yates Street In Victoria This July

4821323149_31118b8ce5_b

Frankie Harrington, Cord Jarvie, and Joseph Sartor are opening a new location of Meat & Bread – their third – at 721 Yates Street in Victoria, BC’s old Churchill Building. That’s between Douglas and Blanshard, so right in the heart of the city. It’s a heritage space – a little bit bigger than Meat & Bread’s Gastown location – and they have Craig Stanghetta reprising his role as designer. I don’t expect they’ll veer too far from the original modern-meets-heritage aesthetic, and the menu will still be anchored by their famous porchetta sandwich and either a vegetarian or grilled cheese. We can also expect a location-specific signature sandwich, much like Gastown has its meatball and Coal Harbour has its corned beef. They’ve only just taken possession and hope to start construction in early May for a July opening. Need work? They’re setting up interviews for core staff as we speak. Email your resumes to info [at] meatandbread.ca.

  1. one of the best places to get the meat sweats in van, Bring it on!! Can’t wait to have a the porchetta again!

  2. Roast in the Hudson Market has been my go to. I hear meat and bread was good but it was always closed when i tried to visit it in Vancouver. Very eager to try Meat and Bread offerings. Will be a tough task to beat out Roast!

  3. Decent food, kinda hipstery (quinoa on a sandwich, really…). Was brought the wrong order, so serving staff and sandwich-makers need to get on same page.
