Vancouver’s best new restaurant openings in 2022
Blind optimism? Extreme courage? Restaurants continue to open despite the hurdles the universe keeps throwing out. You can bet lessons in efficiency, cost-cutting, menu planning, staffing and clever thinking have been learned along the way.
Many restaurateurs and chefs follow a passion and find unique and wonderful ways to express that. The Boxset group of restaurants, especially, continue to excite and innovate, following a smart muse, adding colour and texture to the city’s restaurant and urban culture. These are some of the new restaurants of 2022 that did that, or at least, deserve checking out.
Where: 209 East Sixth Ave., Vancouver.
Not as ambitious as its celebrated next-of-kin, Published on Main, but Bar Susu has that family spark of joy and creativity. While Published on Main garnered a Michelin star, Bar Susu snagged a Michelin recommendation. This spot, part of the Boxset Collective, will see a menu change of direction in the new year as chef Marc Marayag takes over and opening chef Ashley Kurtz steers baby sibling Novella (also on this list) on its exciting way. Marayag will move towards a Euro-Japanese menu, but for now Kurtz’s menu, including a $65 hyper-changing prix fixe, continues. Focus on natural wines also continues.
