Cheesecake turns into PHAT


West 4th’s Cheesecake 101 is done and Andrew Morrison over at is reporting that Yaletown’s PHAT is opening a second location in their old space.

My favourite Vancouver sandwich spot is expanding to Kitsilano. Fans of Yaletown’s PHAT (an acronym for Pretty Hot and Tasty), and in particular their smoked meat sandwiches, will rejoice in hearing that William Kaminsky is opening his second location at 1859 West 4th in the old Cheesecake 101 location. They picked up the keys yesterday, have their plans sorted, and are putting in their application for a liquor license. Expect longer opening hours, a menu that is a carbon copy of the Yaletown location’s, a communal table, espresso bar, and garage door frontage for al fresco suppage. D-day is July 1st. Mazeltov.

Now if only Pinky’s could get organized, that end of West 4th might have a couple reasons to visit.
