Events in Vancouver
An evening affair that will defy your preconceptions of diner food!The Greasy Spoon Diner was conceived by a group of passionate Vancouverites led by Mark Brand who hosts it monthly at his Save On Meats diner. It pairs a chef and his chosen team, often from many other kitchens, alongside a front of house team comprised of people from all sectors in our city. A new menu is created each month which fuses together fine dining and diner food to deliver a four course meal to remember. Proceeds from this edition will be going towards a great cause which focuses on hunger solutions: A Better Life Foundation.
