Burdock & Co seeks inspiration from British Columbia’s tangle of islands and coastlines, sourcing ingredients from local growers, farmers and foragers and presenting them in a fluid culinary experience.
In May 2013, Andrea Carlson opened her cozy neighbourhood eatery at the East End of bohemian Main Street. Her farm-to-table philosophy intrigued and enchanted diners, and the restaurant soon earned a reputation as a pioneer of naturalist food and drink. Now, Burdock & Co is recognized citywide as a welcoming haven that encourages patrons to slow down, connect and linger over a shared meal.
Marrying professional service with a relaxed and approachable vibe, Burdock & Co showcases a constantly updated organic menu and signature method of cooking that allows raw materials to shine. Chef Andrea Carlson has spent more than a decade building relationships with regional farmers and growers from whom she sources seasonal ingredients daily. Her cooking is vibrant, earthy and delicate, complemented by a careful selection of natural wines, craft beers and bespoke cocktails. Every aspect of Burdock & Co reflects Andrea and her team’s commitment to respecting the land, employing artisanal techniques and enjoying simple and honest food.
“Committed to organic, locally-sourced produce, Carlson’s menu is one of the more impressively creative offerings in the city right now.”—Fiona Morrow, Huffington Post, May 13, 2013
“I really like this place. Carlson takes her fine dining skills and funks it up although the dishes could sit comfortably on most fine dining menus and they’re tastier than many haute dishes I’ve had in high-priced spots. The food looks fresh and vibrant and lively and skillfully presented.”—Mia Stainsby, The Vancouver Sun, May 22, 2013
“If there were a competition for the restaurant that best represented Vancouver, Burdock & Co. would be the hands-down winner…this refined-yet-rustic charmer is a shining reflection of progressive local tastes.” –Alexandra Gill, Globe and Mail, June 21, 2013
