Dinner on the Pier returns to the North Shore this year, offering diners the chance to enjoy a spectacular meal in a spectacular setting while raising funds for a terrific cause.
Founders Alex Troll (Co-Owner of The Juicery Co) and Adriana Koc-Spadaro partnered with Justin Duggan to come up with this delicious way to support Growing Chefs!–a charity that educates children, their families, and communities on where fresh food comes from, and how to prepare it. Growing Chefs! gives local youth the chance to engage with food from the ground up in a satisfying and hands-on way.
In its sophomore year, Dinner on the Pier will place on Thursday, August 4, and once again find diners seated under the skies on the Burrard Dry Dock Pier in North Van’s Lower Lonsdale. With last year’s success of Dinner on the Pier, the event has doubled their capacity this year from 150 to 300 seats at the table.
Attendees will kick off their evening with a pre-party at the nearby Pipe Shop Building, where they will walk through the Experiential Cocktail Garden created by Saje Wellness and The Juicery Co.
The main event, however, is a dinner curated by Chef Joel Green from the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier. His west coast-inspired menu will be paired with drinks from Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers.
The menu, which is comprised of dishes served family-style, includes a starter of Blueberry gravlax and house smoked wild sockeye with homemade crackers and fresh baguette, and mains like Pan seared Pacific Sable fish, prawn, corn and edamame bean succotash with a spinach vin blanc and Roasted spring lamb with Dijon, fresh herbs and Beaujolais reduction, and more.
