The Gatsby pop up restaurant Vancouver

Pop up restaurants are nothing new to Vancouver. Once again Two Chefs and a Table are bringing a new pop-up concept, a tribute to the era of prohibition with a series of wildly popular prohibition-themed dinners, and during The Gatsby, the team will once again carefully recreating famous and forgotten dishes and drinks, reintroducing them to modern diners in their intimate bistro.

The restaurant will be transformed with lace, linens , candles and silver punch bowls and the Chef’s Table will become the stunning centrepiece of the room for groups of up to 10. Blackout curtains will evoke the privacy of a speakeasy and period music will set the mood for an escape to another time and place.

Along with classic dishes like Roasted Duck, Steak Tartare, Salmon Wellington, Waldorf Salad, Croquettes and Duchesse Potatoes, guests will be offered period drinks like punch, or a martini, shaken and served tableside. Three and five-course set menus will be offered along with a la carte options.

“The period dinners that we’ve done have been some of our favourite events but we always wanted to have the time to do an even more with our room and menu,” said Karl Gregg. “By doing this dinner event as a pop-up, we’re able to spend even more time and energy transforming the bistro into a tribute to the era.”
