Weekly Goods – Fish Fights, Fish Sales and More

Events this week and on the Horizon

New(ish) for this week we are switching “What’s Good Week of” (because that title was kind of silly) to “Weekly Goods”. Each week (well most weeks) we will bring you what’s up for the week, a couple good things on the Horizon, and perhaps a few other good things. Does this sound too much like Martha Stewart’s “It’s good thing”?

Tuesday October 25 Chefs FISH FIGHT

Long time friends and Vancouver vetrans, Chef Andrea Carlson and Chef Robert Belcham, team up together to bring you FISH FIGHT! An Ocean-forward, collaborative dinner, focused on the bounty of our beautiful BC waters all with naturalist wine pairings. To avoid Eventbrite fees, please call the restaurant to purchase tickets – 604.879.0077

News from Sean Heather

It is hard to believe that we are already a week into the New Year. Here at the Irish Heather we are excited about what this year has in store. We will be launching a lunch delivery service at months end, opening a retail component to our bakery by mid February and opening “Bitter” by mid summer. “Bitter” is a 120 seat beer tasting room….different, but still closely related to it’s cousin Salt Tasting Room.

We have a new executive Chef who we absolutely love…Chef Alvin joined us early in December. Prior to this he was the Head Chef at the award winning Campagnolo restaurant on Main Street. He has injected a little Italian influence into our LTS menus, mostly on Monday and Tuesday nights.

Robert Belcham, chef owner of Campagnolo, Refuel and Vancouver Magazine’s 2009 Chef of the Year, revamped the menus at all of our locations to coincide with Chef Alvin’s arrival. Robert brought a greater focus on local ingredients to our menus, and his fans are chuffed to see his take on tapas at Judas Goat and pub grub at the Heather.

For the 4th year in a row we are involved in Dine Out Vancouver. From Jan 24th until Feb 6th we will offer a 3 course menu for $18 plus tax and service. Our brother restaurant Salt Tasting Room is also involved but at the $28 price point. So, if you have more time and money you might consider DOV instead of LTS.

As always, thanks for all of your support.

Sean Heather
