Cibo Trattoria’s got a new menu, and man, it’s a dreamy one.
The restaurant located in the Moda Hotel now has a culinary team headed up by new Executive Chef Jonathan Chovancek and Chef de Cuisine Josh Gonneau.
These two have worked tirelessly to unveil fresh breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch menus showcasing some incredible authentic Italian fare.
Featuring made-from-scratch dishes on all fronts, the new Cibo menus are available now, and of course, being attached to a hotel means weekday breakfast and weekend brunch – which is good news for Vancouverites in need of their first meal of the day.
Breakfast and brunch options include fare like yogurt and granola along with a selection of dishes with an Italian twist.
The Italian version of a farmer’s breakfast – Colazione Classica – includes two eggs any style, tuscan spice roasted potatoes, and grilled sourdough with choice of smoky bacon or breakfast sausage.
If you’re craving something sweet, the Panettone French Toast should hit the spot. Comprised of milanese sweet bread, stracciatella, citrus marmellata, and drizzled with maple syrup, this dish is fantastic when paired with one of Cibo’s house caesar’s or boozy cocktails.
The Tuscan Wine Braised Beef Short Rib is a hearty dish which is a combo of two poached eggs, tomatoes, potatoes, baby mozzarella, arugula with a side of grilled sourdough – pretty much your hangover cure in a bowl.
For lunch and dinner, Cibo’s new menu has a drool-worthy selection of dishes both light and hearty. With options like the Herb Roasted Chicken Panini and the Wild Smoked Sockeye Sandwich, this spot’s lunch menu offers patrons a quality midday fare in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Marinated Golden and Ruby Beets Salad is a combo of mozzarella di bufala campana, raisins, capers, and basil, and it’s available for lunch. This is a great item to share as a starter for a group or to grab as a main for something on the lighter side.
Meatier mains up for order from the dinner menu include the Haida Gwaii Lingcod, Black Garlic and Chianti Braised Lamb Shank, and Albacore Tuna Crudo with shaved fennel, pickled radish, and orvieto olive oil.
Pasta, of course, is available during Cibo’s lunch and dinner service too, which is fantastic when paired with one of the restaurant’s craft cocktails or top notch wines (it may be hard to pick – the list is extensive – so your serves is your best allie to narrow down your choice).
The new dessert selection doesn’t disappoint, either. With a choice of affogato or house tiramisú complete with Cibo’s housemade molten chocolate brownie, marsala, and espresso bitters, you’ll have no problem finishing your feast with something sweet.
All in all, the Cibo’s new menu offers a fresh selection of food with classic Italian flavours, ones that we’d opt for to enjoy for any meal of the day.
Cibo Trattoria is open from breakfast Monday to Friday from 8 to 11 am, for brunch from 8am to 2pm on weekends and holidays, for lunch Monday to Friday from 11:30 am to 2 pm, and for dinner daily from 5 to 10 pm.
