Oakwood Canadian Bistro Opens in Kitsilano


VANCOUVER — The Oakwood Canadian Bistro has opened in Kitsilano, B.C., with a menu of seasonal, regional cuisine.

A 16-seat communal table, made of reclaimed wood, is at the centerpiece of the 85-seat restaurant that features a “small” menu that spotlights quality ingredients. “We pride ourselves [in] making all products in-house, from the bread to the pastas, the butchery to the sauces — all products are produced with quality and consistency in our kitchen. No smoke and mirrors, just casual, comfortable, honest, unpretentious food,” reads the restaurant website.

Executive chef Michael Robbins’ menu includes a AAA-Burger made with hand-cut meat, a house-made poppyseed bun, buttermilk fried onions and smoked cheddar ($17); an Albacore tuna duo with seared and confit tuna, jalapeño aioli, jicima and a frisée salad ($14) and seared scallops with pork-stuffed potato pasta, corn purée and beet garnish salad ($22).

Oakwood is open Tuesday to Sunday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and until 2 a.m. on Saturdays.
