VANCOUVER — Wildlight Kitchen + Bar has officially opened its doors in the Vancouver neighbourhood of West Point Grey.
Helmed by chef Warren Chow, Wildlight Kitchen + Bar is the first restaurant venture for Pattison Food Group. Chef Chow is fresh off a gold medal win with Community Catering Team Canada at the ExpoGast 2022 Culinary World Cup and has crafted dishes using ethically sourced, seasonal and local ingredients that reflect the bounty of British Columbia.
Diners can expect West Coast seafood, such as juicy gin-steamed mussels from Salt Spring Island and Sheringham’s Seaside gin with njuda butter and cherry tomato or signature pescatarian charcuterie board, featuring housemade salmon pastrami, beet cured ling cod, marinated mussels, smoked albacore tataki, cod rillettes, pickled sea asparagus, warm olives, rye, poppadum and nori crackers. Other offerings include Wildlight chicken wings with shishito, garlic, charred lime and nuoc cham caramel; seasonal risotto with farmer’s choice vegetables; steak frites; pan-roasted Rossdown Farms chicken; and West Coast seafood chowder.
Wildlight’s all-day menu is paired with a beverage program that features B.C. craft beer and cider, an extensive selection of top B.C. wines by the glass or bottle and creative cocktails. The restaurant also offers daily happy hours, and will soon be introducing weekend brunch.
“We are so excited to open our doors and welcome the community into this new space, where we know they’ll feel at home,” says chef Chow.
“It is so thrilling to see our concept come to light,” says Brenton Smith, general manager at Wildlight Kitchen + Bar. “We can’t wait for guests to experience what we have created at Wildlight Kitchen + Bar.”
