We posted about summer Kitsilano restaurant openings a little while back, and we’re so excited that Mission restaurant is now open in Kitsilano. The soft launch was June 17. You can check them out this weekend and tell us what you think.
Mission has taken over the short-lived August Jack location at 2042 West 4th Avenue. It’s a venture by first time (but really talented) restaurateurs Curtis Luk (ex-Chef at The Parker, before that Fable) and sommelier Chase Macleod (ex-GM at Fable). The cocktails are by Justin (@drinksundressed).
The concept, which is the source of their name, is refreshingly simple. The restaurant is a mission to great food, wine and cocktails. It’s also the culmination of their journey to open their own place. The menu will be local and seasonal. Curtis Luk is a notoriously thoughtful, thorough chef and has nothing to prove. We expect to sit back and enjoy his skills.
