NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. — Bufala Edgemont opened its doors for the first time on November 20, in North Vancouver’s Edgemont Village.
The 3,300-sq.-ft. restaurant is the latest high-profile project for Gooseneck Hospitality — the Vancouver-based team behind Wildebeest, Lucky Taco, Bells and Whistles and the original Bufala.
The Edgemont location offers an expanded menu compared to its sister restaurant, with offerings such as Peace Country lamb shank with red wine and rosemary-mushroom risotto; and a 7 oz. heritage flatiron steak with peperonata and polenta. The kitchen also showcases a variety of made-from-scratch pizzas — including roasted bone marrow with mozzarella, parsley, lemon and bianco; and the Caponata, with eggplant, treviso, burnt orange, fried capers and marinara — as well as pasta dishes such as Sagne e pezze with kale, ‘nduja sausage and bagna càuda; and pappardelle with duck ragu, chestnuts, sage and pumpkin seeds.
Bufala Edgemont’s decor was designed by studio CM’s Andrea Greenway and Ella Kane (Bauhaus, Dalina).
To celebrate the launch, the Bufala Edgemont team will donate the profits from every Margherita pizza sold for the remainder of the month to KidSport North Shore, a local charity that provides financial support for families facing barriers that prevent kids from playing organized sports.
“Just like Kerrisdale, there’s a strong sense of community here in Edgemont Village, and we’re excited to be a part of another tight-knit and historic area of the city,” says James Iranzad, restaurateur and co-owner of Bufala Edgemont. “We also know what an active and sport-oriented area the North Shore is, so we’re pleased to give a little something back to the thousands of local kids who play organized sports here through KidSport.”
