This eatery will be located on the northwest side of the Granville Island Public Market. Patrons can expect to see the kitchen and take away counters inside of repurposed shipping containers, along with new outdoor seating.

This unique spot is part of Granville Island 2040, an initiative that aims to transform the area into an expanded and lively Market District.
