The best blog posts are on restaurant openings in Kits and foodies will be stoked about this one. Last October, we wrote about Karv closing at W. First Avenue and Yew Street. That was sad. Happily, however, we now know what will fill the fairly large hole.
Richard “Chewie” Chew, formerly the chef at Rodney’s Oyster House in Yaletown, has acquired the permits for the 2,300 sq. ft. space at 2201 Yew Street and plans to begin renovations shortly. He’s calling his new restaurant “Chewie’s Steam & Oyster Bar.” The bivalve guru describes it as a “Cajun/Creole-inspired oyster and steam bar.”
