Chambar Goes Medieval
On Sunday, July 22nd Chambar restaurant will host its annual medieval feast to celebrate Belgian National Day. In honour of his heritage, and Chambar’s vibrant cultural roots, Chef/Owner Nico Schuermans is set to cook up a feast for the ages that will include a spit roast pig cooked just outside Chambar’s doors on Beatty Street, and 17 courses served family style. This debaucherous dining experience will be rounded out with communal tables loaded with platters of meat and meters of Chambar Ale.
History buffs will recognize Belgium’s national holiday as the day that Leopold the 1st took the constitutional oath as the first King of Belgium on July 21st, 1831. For one night only, indulge with Chambar to honour this momentous occasion in Belgian history.
Medieval style costumes and furs are deemed festive, but not essential. Please note that due to the traditional nature of this celebration, vegetarian options and cutlery will not be available (neither were orthodox in 1831).
Guests are encouraged to reserve their seat early for what promises to be no-fuss, hands-on dining at its finest. The festivities kick-off at 6:00pm with seats priced at $70 per person, plus tax and gratuity. For reservations, phone 604-879-7119 or purchase tickets online at: www.chambar.com/tickets
