Recently opened on the corner of Granville and Helmcken, The Edge may have just managed to pick out a coveted, underserved area in the downtown region.
Modern Mix Vancouver would like to express its congratulations to CRU Restaurant (1459 West Broadway), for winning Gold in the the 2009 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards “Small Plates” category! “They’ve got the most inventive small plates in the city,” said one judge. “Sleek, sexy, and sophisticated.” Try the duck confit robed in bacon if you need convincing.”
CRU will be the exclusive canape/appetizer sponsor at Modern Mix Vancouver’s one-year anniversary party, on Tuesday May 12th (6:30pm to 9pm). Save the date! Facebook event is HERE, more details and official invitation to come soon.
Last week, MONTECRISTO magazine announced that Voya Restaurant’s mixologist and head bartender, Jay Jones, would be joining its contributing team. Jay is in good company, with Karri Schuermans, proprietor of Chambar Belgian Restaurant, also writing a piece. Chambar recently acquired a unit adjacent to their restaurant, and have undergone a few renovations to transform the space into an elegant private dining room. While guests will surely notice the grand antique Egyptian doors that lead them into the room, only Schuermans can appreciate the joy and frustration of getting them there—until now, that is. Schuermans shares the story of how she acquired these beautiful doors, in MONTECRISTO’s upcoming spring issue.
They came from a man named Harry Stryer, who has an antique warehouse tucked away on Franklin Street. Harry travels all over the world, and is often hard to track down, but when he finally returns to Vancouver, he always brings back with him something unique.
