We always keep you up to date on Vancouver’s most exciting restaurant openings, and although it’s not our favourite job, we keep you posted on the city’s closures as well.

In retrospect, February was a big month for closing announcements.

Whether they served their last plate of grub or confirmed it officially, here are six Vancouver restaurants that closed their doors last month.

Cartems has officially closed one of its Vancouver locations. The local chain of neighbourhood donut shops announced that its 3040 W Broadway outpost in Kitsilano would be permanently closing after February 21.

The Black Lodge

The Black Lodge has officially closed its doors. The Twin Peaks-inspired restaurant and bar operated its first location at Fraser and Kingsway for five years before opening a second outpost at 317 East Broadway in 2017. The Mount Pleasant watering hole was known for its craft beer and vegan/vegetarian comfort eats.

Granville Island staple Edible Canada has permanently closed its doors after 15 years of operation. Edible was known for serving up quality Canadian cuisine made from local ingredients; they also had a killer Caesar on the menu (one of our all-time favourites).

Sad news for dumpling fans, Hey Dumplings has officially closed up shop at its Chinatown location. The 208 Keefer Street resto first opened back in Spring 2018, where it’s been serving sweet and savoury Russian-style dumplings fresh and frozen.

Some much-loved Vancouver restaurants have closed their doors since the onset of the pandemic, and we are super sad to add Wildebeest to that list. The 120 W Hastings Street eatery was known for its rustic interior and unreal farm-to-table menu.
