The Long Table Series at the Irish Heather is Back with Sunday Roasts and Meatless Mondays

imagesWhat will you be bringing to the table this summer? Summer is in full swing and is being served up hot at the seasonal edition of The Irish Heather’s popular Long Table Series. Every Sunday & Monday night at 7:00pm, Gastown’s favourite gastropub hosts up to 50 people at their 40-foot long communal table, for a satisfying social dining experience with a seasonal twist. Every week brings new people to the table – tourists and locals alike. Don’t be shy; it’s time to take a seat and get cozy with your new neighbour!

Bringing together friends old and new, the Long Table Series was originally created as an alternative dining experience when the recession was biting hard and the unique ‘home away from home’ experience has endured at a great price. For only $16 (including an artisan beer), you get a hearty “Sunday Dinner” style meal that is sure to be Mom-approved.

The new lineup of LTS dinners will kick off Sunday August 11th with a delicious Sunday Roast: Roast Beef, Yorkshire Pudding, Roast Potatoes and Gravy. New to the Long Table Series is “Meatless Mondays”, part of a campaign supported through Vancouver’s food policy council that calls on people to forego meats one day per week. On Monday August 12th, the first LTS Meatless Monday will feature a vegetarian and vegan menu: White Bean and Mushroom Croquette with Red Pepper Coulis, Pickled Mushroom and Local Lettuce Salad.

Upcoming Long Table Series events include Sunday Roasts & Meatless Mondays on August 11, 12, 18 & 19. Stay tuned for some upcoming Pit for Your Supper events (peaches in August) and some Wild Card LTS events (think Whiskey & wine). The Irish Heather is located at 212 Carrall Street, Vancouver BC. Email reso@irishheather.com to reserve a spot at the table for only $16 per person (including an artisan beer) + taxes and gratuities. Visit itsmenu.blogspot.ca for more details and to view the full schedule.

The Irish Heather is Vancouver’s most authentic and traditional Irish pub with wallpaper hand-made in Ireland, floors made of Guinness barrels reclaimed from the Guinness brewery in Ireland, original Irish period posters and the best Guinness pour in town. Located in the heart of historic Gastown, this gastropub has garnered many accolades for its service, food, drinks and ambiance. In a world filled with “Plastic Paddy” establishments, the Heather stands out as a beacon of authenticity. A true Irish House that is owned and operated by Irish people.

St. Patrick’s Day Tastes Around Vancouver

pot of goldSaint Patrick’s Day was traditionally a religious holiday, a celebration of the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, honouring Saint Patrick. Gradually it morphed into a feast day, coinciding with the lifting of the Lenten restrictions and involving indulgent eats and the drinking of alcohol, which are restricted during Lent. These days, anything goes and although it’s not a public holiday in Vancouver, residents with and without Irish blood take the occasion seriously enough and use it as an excuse to wear green, overindulge and generally misbehave. While plenty of amateurs still think green beer is the only way to go (just say no), be a pro and do something more real this March 17.

 

Shepherds Pie

Gramercy Grill

Over on the west side the at Arbutus and 11th, The Gramercy Grill is offering up a St. Patrick’s Day Menu from Friday March 15-Sunday March 17 with items such as their minted green pea and smoked ham soup, shepherds pie, Guinness lamb stew with soda bread and braised corn beef.  Brunch here could be poached green eggs benedict with spinach and ham or Kilkenny battered fish & chips and there’s whisky and beer specials such as the local favourite Howe Sound Oatmeal stout brewed right in Squamish.

Palki’s Restaurant Commercial Drive

Think the Indian and the Irish don’t mix?  Think again.  At Palkis they are frying up beer-battered pakoras and have beer and pakora specials and have beer on tap for $3.75 a pint.  Need some green?  Try their spinach panneer.  They’ll also be playing the band Delhi to Dublin playing in the background and are also serving a Delhi to Dublin Cocktail (Irish Whiskey, Mint, Lime & Sugar) for $5.

Mix The Bakery

If you’re looking for something sweet for a St. Patrick’s Day treat, check out Mix The Bakery on West 10th towards UBC.  They’ve just revamped their menu to include all sorts of lovely sandwiches, but for the weekend their specials are the highly decorative and gift-worthy pot of gold cupcakes pictured above as well as the green tea and hazelnut opera cake and a raisin-filled Irish soda bread which is perfect with their house-made preserves.

Irish Heather

In Gastown the Irish Heather is the place to go for all things St. Patty’s Day as they’ve got room at the Heather’s main bar or in the back at the Shebeen Whisky Bar and are serving up classic Irish dishes such as House-Made Corned Beef & Cabbage and Bread Pudding with a local nod as it’s studded with Okanagan fruit.  They’ve also got the Long Table Series with 5 different seatings at their communal table and are serving up a 2 course meal with an Irish lager for $40.  On March 16 the Heather has a Jameson Whiskey Supper.  Why not celebrate St. Patrick’s eve?

Raincity Grill

When you think of food for Saint Patrick’s Day, corned beef and cabbage come to mind, but at the health-focused Raincity Grill, Chef  Nicolas Hipperson will celebrate with ingredients from BC’s backyard, with nods to Irish flavours. Try Green Eggs and Ham, a dish of scrambled eggs with pork, toast and herbed potatoes, Green Fish n’Chips with house-made tartar, Irish stew with lamb cheeks, potatoes, leeks and fresh herbs, and Smoked Salmon Brioche with poached eggs, hollandaise and green salad. A two-course tasting menu is available both Saturday March 16 and Sunday March 17.

Pit for Your Supper at The Irish Heather

What happens when you combine over 2,000 pounds of fresh cherries, approximately 50 volunteers and a 40-foot long table? Gather your friends, put on your aprons, roll up your sleeves and get ready to dive into pitting a mountain of Okanagan cherries at The Irish Heather’s Pit for Your Supper on July 18, 2012. Guests will earn their supper while preparing the bumper crop of juicy cherries from Heather Hospitality Group (HHG) partner Scott Hawthorn’s Picker Shack Orchard, which will be utilized in a number of tasty food and beverage items at the group’s restaurants.

What better way to connect with where your food comes from than getting up to your elbows in BC’s bountiful fruit harvest? Food loving volunteers will sit elbow to elbow at the long table, pitting fruit and making new friends as the evening progresses. Once the hard work is done, the group will be fed a delicious meal paired with beer, then go home with a bag of cherries. The supper menu consists of spiced pork loin served with potato salad and fresh cut slaw; or there is a vegetarian option of fried green onion polenta, white bean and garlic puree, topped with a zucchini salad. Supper is paired with a feature beer, the Driftwood Fat Tug IPA from Victoria, BC. Pitting commences at 7pm and supper is served at 9pm.

Scott Hawthorn’s Picker Shack Orchard on the bench in Naramata has produced a bountiful crop of quality fruit this year. Cherries, apricots, peaches, pears and apples will be utilized in a number of house made dishes and accompaniments at HHG venues. Watch for sun-dried cherries as a feature condiment at Salt Tasting Room, apricot chutney for roast suckling pig at The Irish Heather’s Long Table Series, apricot and pear jam at Everything Café and the Salty Tongue and fresh fruit filling for pastries made at Penn Bakeshop. Guests will find this delicious fruit in cheese and charcuterie plates, in cherry chutney to accompany house made terrines, and even as an ingredient in an exclusive beer made for Bitter by R&B Brewing Co. As part of the R&B exclusive draft beer series, stay tuned for the release of either the Cherry Wheat Ale or an Apple Brown Ale availably only at Bitter.

Pit for Your Supper takes place on the 40-foot-long communal table in The Irish Heather, 212 Carrall Street, Vancouver, BC. The weekly event begins at 7pm on Wednesday July 18th with cherries for the first 4 weeks. After cherries come apricots, peaches, apples and pears every Wednesday straight through to September. To volunteer at this popular event and get on the list, e-mail reso@irishheather.com. To view the full schedule of events visit: www.itsmenu.blogspot.ca.

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

News From Sean Heather

Over the last few weeks we have added some new dimensions to our little company. “Judas Goat Taberna” and “Fetch Hot Dogs” are now open and next week our partnership with Rennie Marketing Systems with give birth to “Everything Cafe”. 

We recently signed a lease for the ground floor corner units in the Pennsylvania Hotel, kitty corner to Pigeon Park on the South East corner of Hastings and Carrall St. Our intention is to open a bakery where the breads and desserts will be prepared for Salt, Judas Goat, Irish Heather, Everything Cafe and Salty Tongue. There will also be a small retail counter selling bread, cakes, pastries, etc. 

And finally, for now anyway, we are working on a butcher shop with a start date of Summer 2011. 

The Heather won a praise at the recent Georgia Straight Golden Plate Awards, specifically Best Pub and Best Pub Grub. Our Brother Restaurant Salt Tasting Room won a Platinum Rating for its Wine List (one of only 3 restaurants in Vancouver this year) and it’s former G.M. Kurtis Kolt won BC Sommelier of year for his fantastic knowledge and his work at Salt. 

We couldn’t do any of this with out the professionalism of our management team. A big shout out to Lee, Justin, Dagmar, Brooke, Lindsay, Peter, Alex, Carmen, Elaine & Ben. 

Long Table Series 

After an almost 3 week break, our highly successful LTS is back. 

We are hosting two sittings this Mother’s Day for all of you who want to treat your mom…hey she raised you, the least that you can do is buy her dinner every once and a while. And, if your mom doesn’t live in Vancouver, come for dinner anyway, I’m certain that there’ll be a mom at the table who’ll adopt you, they’re good like that! If mom doesn’t fancy a beer, fear not, we’ll serve her a glass of wine instead.   

In anticipation of some warmer weather (though as I write this it is a dark, overcast, wet Sunday evening), we have added some lighter, summer dishes e.g. Flat Iron Steak, Baby Back Ribs, Poached Salmon, Baked Ham and a variety of cold sides to match. We have also dropped the price back to $12 on the Mondays, because, well..why not? 

June 15th will the be the One Year birthday of the LTS. In celebration of this, we will launch the LTS lunch & breakfast, as well as a couple of late night, weekend events. We’ll also be running a couple of super cheap nights…but more on that as we get closer to June 15th. 

As always, we are delighted to accommodate any dietary requests, all we ask is 24 hours notice if possible. 

Many of our guests are vegetarian and naturally enough want to know what the vegetarian meal will be served on the night that they attend. This time around we have listed the vegetarian dishes featured each week. 

For those who don’t want to drink alcohol, we are offering Boylan’s Vintage Soda Pop, courtesy of their Canadian agents and our pals, Dovre Imports. 

For details/info click HERE and to reserve seats click HERE 

Fetch Hot Dog 

Fetch is our homage to the humble hot dog, The bun is whole wheat, the wiener is handmade for us by J.N. & Z. Deli on Commercial Drive. The meat used is mostly pork butts and the casing is natural…there is absolutely no filler, skin, lips or ass in this wiener. 

As well as the quality of meat, the condiments at Fetch set it apart for other Vancouver Dog Shops. In addition to the regular showing of ketchup and mayo, Fetch customers can choose from caramelized onions, Piccalilli relish, ball park mustard, Guinness whole grain mustard, salsa verde, grated Comte, fondue cheese sauce, puled pork chili…to name but a few. 

You fill out a sheet, designing your perfect dog and we’ll build it for you. 

Fetch is located in the Electric Building, on the south east corner of Hastings and Carrall St, (a block and a half south of the Heather). Service is through a hatch, and commencing Wednesday May 5th, it will be open from 8am to 7pm Monday-Friday.

 

Judas Goat Taberna 

Hallelujah, Judas Goat has been a great success with critics, bloggers and most importantly the public, who have voted with their feet by packing the place every night. 

We are fortunate to be at the helm of a project that has captured the dining public’s imagination. Our plan was for people to stop by on their way to or from other local eateries. We are delighted to see that in addition to our intended audience we have attracted guests who want to make the Goat their only venue that night. 

Soon the Goat will open for lunch. 

For a blog on the trials and tribulations of the Goat’s birth and post opening comments including reviews, etc please visit HERE
 

Everything Cafe 

Located at 75 East Pender Street, beside the Wing Sang Building, this 36 seat cafe will open next week (10 May). This is a collaboration between ourselves and Rennie Marketing Systems. Open for cafe-style Breakfast, Lunch & Afternoon Snacks, this beautiful Cafe will be a great hang out, for those in the hood and others who are seeking a comfortable, stylish haunt. 

Featuring coffee from Intelligentsia in Chicago and Milano here in Vancouver, baked goods from our pastry chef Dagmar and great soups, sandwiches & salads from Chef Lee Humphries’ kitchen.

Upright Brewing

Portland’s Upright Brewing specializes in farmhouse-inspired ales rooted in France and Belgium, but made with local ingredients and a Pacific Northwest twist. The name is a reference to Charles Mingus and his primary instrument, a musician whose compositions defy categorization. At Upright they use a special saison yeast and open fermenters to produce beers that are a true hybrid style, sharing Mingus’ spirit of exercising creativity and craft.

A three-venue beer dinner will take guests through the Shebeen Whisk(e)y House, the Irish Heather, and Salt. Guests will enjoy a glass of Upright Brewing’s Belgian-inspired ale at the Shebeen before setting down for dinner at the Irish Heather’s Long Table. There, Chef Lee Humphries will offer two courses paired with two different beers. Afterwards, guests will move over to Salt for a final cheese course in the Salt Cellar, again, featuring two Upright beers.
