Looks like the Feenie watch is over. UrbanDiner – via the Vancouver Sun – reports that Rob Feenie has joined Cactus Club to become their “food architect”. Not sure what to think of this. I don’t think it’ll lure me into Cactus Club though.

Speaking of casual fine dining, reviews of the Yaletown Pinkys are mixed. Andrew Morrison (in the WE) is not excited, a reader of The Vancouverite calls it a douche-a-palooza, Raj is impressed, and reviewers on both DineHere and urbanspoon give it high marks. I guess we’ll just have to go check it our for ourselves once they open their West 4th location.

    Should be interesting to see what Mr. Feenie can do with the Cactus Club. It’s not unlike Karl Lagerfeld/Stella McCarteney desiging a line for H&M.

    That’s a nice analogy. It would hold if this turns out to be a temporary gig or one on the side.

    The first thing that came to my mind was Beckham joining the LA Galaxy. Seen by many as a waste of talent and “selling-out”, but it did certainly raise the Galaxy’s profile.

    I’m confused. I recently saw Mr. Feenie on a white spot commercial…

    Raj here – let me know when you go to Pinkys next, I’ll join you. I’m craving one of their rib steaks.
