David Gunawan Brings Farm-to-Table Dining to Vancouver with Royal Dinette


VANCOUVER — Celebrated chef David Gunawan will offer downtown Vancouver a farm-to-table feast this July with the launch of Royal Dinette, a casual new restaurant that offers sustainable and seasonal dining.

“At Royal Dinette, we’re not only bringing the concept of seasonality and true farm-to-table cuisine to downtown Vancouver,” says Gunawan, “but we’re also aiming to engender a new awareness in our guests about food itself — how it is produced, sourced, prepared and ultimately served.”

Gunawan, also chef/owner of Vancouver-based Farmer’s Apprentice and Grapes & Soda, will preside over Royal Dinette as chef/owner, while former Farmer’s Apprentice and L’Abattoir Chef de Cuisine, Jack Chen, will join Gunawan as head chef.

Royal Dinette, located at 905 Dunsmuir St., will be open for weekday lunch, happy hour, dinner and late-night drinks Monday to Saturday and is set to open this July.
