Ambiance to Spare
Whether you opt for a cozy armchair spot by the window or a booth in the thick of it all, you’ll be flanked by rotating art displays that always draw a reaction, from sculptures of a naked man with a piece of driftwood to his head to hanging irons vying for the dress shirt on the ceiling. Monstrous candles and the mounds of wax drippings from years of use add a gothic feel to the industrial warehouse space and low lighting maintains the down-tempo vibe.
With a rotating fresh sheet and daily drink specials, there is always some new concoction to be tried, tested and tasted, courtesy of the creative chefs who always strive to keep the menu fresh. From the ever-popular blue and green salad to the homemade yam fries with their accompanying trio of delectable dips, there is something on the starter menu for even the most discerning palate. The entrée menu features some of the tastiest in west coast offerings, from a truffled vegetable brochette to maple soy wild salmon, all served with your choice of starch, such as butternut squash marscapone cheese risotto, Yukon scalloped potatoes, tomato linguini or green rice.
