Our favourite season is finally here, and with it comes some highly anticipated summer restaurant openings in Vancouver.

If the return of our much-loved patio season hasn’t gotten you jazzed up for the warmer months, we do have several exciting openings to look forward to, and they are comin’ up quickly.

The countdown to epic eats is officially on for these buzz-worthy Vancouver summer restaurant openings.

Charcuterie Vancouver

One of the city’s top makers for custom graze tables, boards, and charcuterie boxes is opening a brick-and-mortar shop. Charcuterie Vancouver announced a storefront is officially in the works, and it’s slated to open this summer. The purveyor revealed the shop will be located at 2766 West 4th Avenue in Kitsilano, which is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the beach (picnics to-go, anyone?).

Crispy Saffron Rice

Bardia Ilbeiggi is behind this new concept, which will offer diners cuisine inspired by the cooking and hospitality of Iran, where he grew up, the chef tells Dished Vancouver. Ilbeiggi has previously worked in the kitchen in Paris, Copenhagen, and some notable culinary institutions in Vancouver like L’abattoir and Farmer’s Apprentice. Now, he’s gearing up to open his new 2,400-sq-ft, 60-seat restaurant, where he’ll offer “humble yet elegant” Persian food.
