Vancouver’s Top Chef Canada contestant Dale MacKay who was recently part of the casualties from the closure of Lumiere and DB Bistro Moderne, will be opening his own restaurant Ensemble at the failed Corner Suite Bistro spot.
Ensemble will feature be a casual French restaurant. It will offer a wide variety of flavours in the $8-$24 price range. Look for a 30 seat oyster and cocktail bar and an 85 seat dining room. It’s slated to open early May.
Another great thing is that MacKay will be bringing some of his staff that was let go with him to Ensemble.
It’ s great to see a new restaurant make it on to the scene and so fast after the recent closures. However, will the location of Robson and Haro be the ultimate deciding factor in the success of Enseble? Only time will tell.
