Why B.C. restaurants are still suffering post-pandemic
It’s a late Monday afternoon, traditionally slow in the restaurant business, but already a smattering of customers occupy tables at Mythos Taverna in North Vancouver, not bad for 45 minutes after opening at 4 p.m.
Mythos, a charming and popular mom-and-pop fixture in North Van, has a devoted and loyal fan base and held its own during COVID-19.
Mythos, an airy welcoming space with split-level seating that includes a large sheltered patio and a “Romeo and Juliet” romantic balcony, is owned and operated by Nick Fikeris and his wife Poppy.
He cooks, she greets.
“Actually we’ve been OK, I’d say we’re almost back to (pre-COVID) normal,” Nick Fikeris said. “But I think we are an exception, you have to look at the whole picture. I’ve heard a lot of stories from suppliers and the industry is suffering.”
