Food Lovers: Friday's Fabulous Find

Finally Vancouver offers a full vegetarian restaurant, (besides the delicious Acorn located on Main Street), I dedicate today's amazing find to my food lovers and especially vegetarian lovers, bringing you a desire to visit Vancouver's largest vegetarian restaurant.  Located in the historic building that turned 100 this year, the delicious and unique restaurant Heirloom is revealed at 1509 West 12th Ave to be exact, in the heart of the South Granville District.  The restaurant welcomes you with simple yet a warm ambiance.

Heirloom describes their restaurant experience as "contemporary dining experienced with a beautiful, current menu that boats healthy, casual, interesting food from brunch and dinner, complemented by fresh witty cocktail , a respectable organic wine list and a great selection of local small craft beers".  Yes my vegan friends, there is plently for you to choose from the menu :).

With Heirloom's Executive Chef Georiga Morley designing the menu, we can experience the best of the best.  She brings her expertise as a holistic nutrition consultant and along with being a personal Chef for Chip Wilson and Henrik Sedin (to name a couple). 

Not to worry, you won't break your bank, especially those who are planning a wedding, (your Wedding Planner will be thrilled to know you aren't going into the wedding budget to dine here!).  The plates are mostly prepared for sharing typically ranging at $18 per plate, and will not be disappointed with the taste of each dish at this restaurant; yes, the meat lover in you may die after realizing how amazing vegetarian food is! 

Heirloom a great spot to meet with your wedding party, let your hair down and brainstorm ideas for the wedding over a glass of wine as you share the delicious food plates.  Or perfect for a date night with your partner to de-stress.

Date Night Tip:
The Stanley Theatre is right on Granville Street, not even a block away from Heirloom.  May I suggest, dinner at Heirloom and a show afterwards at the Stanley.  Go ahead, surprise your loved one or maid of honor (with all the hard work she/he is putting into your wedding!).  Check out this link for shows at The Stanley.

Bon a petite readers and happy date night!
