New Italian spot "NOX" to open in Vancouver's Coal Harbour

Aug 19 2020, 7:14 pm

Get out your eating pants, there are several new Italian restaurants opening in Vancouver, and the latest announcement is for NOX, a new establishment opening in Coal Harbour.

Brought to us by the folks behind New West’s el Santo and Amaranthus, Alejandro Diaz and Sam Fabbro, this concept will be a contemporary spot to head for a West Coast take on Italian eats.

“NOX” is the Roman name for Nyx, the Greek goddess of the night renowned for her exceptional power and beauty.

“As a second-generation Italian immigrant who grew up on the West Coast, I wanted to create a restaurant that captures and celebrates the two worlds I grew up in,” says Sam Fabbro, Corporate Chef at NOX.

“I wanted to combine the best of Italian cooking with the exceptional produce that we have here in BC to create something that is unlike any other Italian restaurant in the city. This isn’t your nonna’s Italian.”

While dishes are described as “not your nonna’s Italian,” the eatery plans to offer house-made pasta, bread, and a curated wine list with bottles from notable Italian and BC producers.

NOX’s space is set to be divided into two spaces, a more upscale dining room and a casual lounge area. These spaces will offer different menus.

This new spot will be opening in the Cardero building on West Georgia Street later this year, we’ll keep you posted when an exact opening date is revealed.
