Everyone’s going on and on about AnnaLena, the new Kits destination restaurant by former Oakwood Chef Mike Robbins. We tend to agree with the rave reviews of the food, even if we object to the trend wherein cool kid restaurants use their Gramma’s name as a restaurant moniker.
So if you ate there after sunset and got hooked on Kusshi oysters with jalapeno mignonette and shaved foie, or the tahini kale salad, stop by between 10am and 1:45 Saturdays and Sundays for brunch. Here’s the release.
Brunch has quickly become the weekend morning norm for Vancouverites and AnnaLena plans to do things a little different. With a plan to showcase the best spot for eggs benny in the city, Kitsilano’s AnnaLena will begin brunch service starting this Saturday morning at 10am to 1:45 sharp. With items such as beef brisket and grainy Dijon hollandaise to trout belly benedict with dill hollandaise brunch will be a welcomed addition to the small 60 seat eatery that has seen great success to date.
With the addition of a single breakfast sandwich there will also be gluten free options available. Brunch at AnnaLena will operate on a first come first serve walk in basis so be sure to get there soon before the word is out and the line ups begin!
Brunch will also feature a playful, creative breakfast cocktail program led by bar manager Kevin Brownlee. With items like “Wake up Whiskey” (house whiskey cream, coffee, whipped amaretto), The Hermosa (reposado tequila, cocchi americano rose, fresh grapefruit, bubbles), and the Spruce Wayne (gin, fresh mint, spruce tip syrup, coconut water, fresh lemon cucumber) you might be leaving a little more elated than when you arrived.
Located just blocks from Kits Beach (on 1st & Cypress), AnnaLena will be a great start to the day on the way to the beach for some well earned sun!
