It’s almost been a year since legendary vegetarian eatery, The Foundation, closed its doors, and we’ve been waiting to see what would replace the 2301 Main Street restaurant.
Well, it’s not new, but it sure is exciting – The Rumpus Room – yes, that Rumpus Room is officially opening in The Foundation’s former digs.

Known for their funky decor, classic board and card games, and comfort food eats, the Mount Pleasant eatery (formerly at 2689 Main Street) closed in 2014 due to building development, but they are rearing to make a triumphant return on Vancouver’s dining scene.
Daily Hive confirmed that The Rumpus Room 2.0 will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and owner Rachel Zottenberg and her business partner David Duprey plan to deck out the interior just like the original location.
We can’t wait to step back into this rec-room from the ’80s and get back into a menu full of treats like their signature Deep Fried Pickles with house-made tartar sauce, Red Hot & Blue Chicken Burger, Peanut Butter Burger and “Pickle Back” shots (Jameson whiskey ft. pickle juice), and Bourbon Root Beer Ice Cream Floats.
Zottenberg and Duprey are also the owners of The Emerald Supper Club, The Narrow Lounge, and Uncle Abe’s diner.
Address: 2301 Main Street, Vancouver
