Jan 17 2020, 8:07 pm

The restaurant industry in Vancouver can be fickle and – once again – the city’s dining scene has suffered some casualties. Alas, this is the way of the foodie world.

Here is your update on restaurants in and around Vancouver that have recently shuttered or will do so imminently.

The 100-seat Gastown restaurant came to us from L’Abattoir Chefs Lee Cooper and Jack Chen. It offered patrons a bounty of fresh-caught seafood and shellfish in a swanky Situ-designed interior. Daily Hive reached out for a reason for the closure but did not hear back in time for publishing.

Chinatown’s Juniper Kitchen + Bar quietly shuttered after its final service at the end of December. The 100-seat Cascadian-themed restaurant was just steps away from other eateries like Juke Fried Chicken, Bao Bai, and The Keefer, and had been operating at its 185 Keefer Street address since December 2015.

Memphis Blues told Daily Hive they plan to open the OG Memphis in a new location in the same area if they can find an affordable space, which has been a fruitless search thus far. We’ll keep you posted on an exact closing date. Until then, the whole Memphis team urges customers to come in and enjoy the space, the service, and the grub.
