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.
