A new year means a new slew of restaurants will be opening in Vancouver, and there are a few we truly can’t wait to dine in.

From global fast-food chains to fresh local concepts from industry vets, here are the eight biggest Vancouver restaurant openings slated to happen in 2021.

CRAFT Beer Market English Bay is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated restaurant openings coming up, so here’s your first glimpse of what we can expect from this concept in an oh-so-coveted waterfront location.

Momofuku Noodle Bar

Momofuku Noodle Bar will be opening in Vancouver House in 2021. The Vancouver bar will be based upon the OG New York Momofuku Noodle Bar “while celebrating the best products the Pacific Northwest has to offer.”

Here’s another new addition to Vancouver House. We finally know what’s slated to take over this eye-catching spot: Ça Marche. Owner Maxime Bettili told Dished Vancouver that the new eatery will specialize in the Breton/French culinary classic of crĂȘpes and cider, complete with “a Pacific Northwest edge.”

The sweet spot will take over the former location of Truffles Fine Foods at 785 Davie Street. Once it’s open, Honeybrew Bar aims to become a must-try destination for strudels, coffee, and cocktails for locals and visitors alike.

PAUL, a 131-year-old bakery cafe originating from Northern France, will be opening up its first Canadian location in downtown Vancouver soon. Founded in Croix in 1889, PAUL now operates 620 shops (branches and franchises) in 34 countries, and it looks like Canada’s next on the list for the worldwide brand.

Good news for Vancouver fans of Filipino fast food joint Jollibee, we are FINALLY getting our first location. The hugely popular purveyor of Jolly Crispy Chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, and hot-dog-studded Jolly Spaghetti will be opening right in the middle of our city — downtown on Granville Street.
