Kitsilano has long been the hub of Vancouver’s vegetarian fare. One of my favourite grab-and-go veggie places was Greens & Gourmet (2585 West Broadway) – a pay what it weighs buffet with healthy food, made from scratch, that was always pretty good.
Naturally I was disappointed to recently learn that after a lengthy stay in Kitsilano, the restaurant will be “relocating.” Unfortunately, I can’t seem to get any information on why or where – the website and phone are down and the signs at the location offer no information. Do any readers know the scoop?
Yet as one veggie restaurant closes another prepares to open. Balking the cheap and cheerful, hippy nature of Kits’ veggie restaurants, South Granville is soon to be home to Heirloom, a modern yet casual restaurant with Kitsilano ties – the chef is Georgia Morley (Chip Wilson’s former personal chef). The new restaurant will take over the Primo’s Mexican Grill and with 100 seats will become the City’s largest vegetarian restaurant. The restaurant is expected to open very soon. With most food still priced under $20, it just might worth the stroll to South Granville.
