Opening a restaurant during a pandemic is not what the owners of Burnaby’s next great eatery were hoping for.
But you deal with the hand that is left you.
With Burnaby’s Pear Tree restaurant closing down in mid-August, the city needs other restaurants to step up their game.
Time & Place is looking to fill that void, opening its doors in a revamped dining space on the third floor of newly renovated Hilton Vancouver Metrotown.
A locally-inspired menu designed by Executive Chef David Ferguson awaits diners.
Menu highlights include: Grilled Kuterra Salmon Bowl, a wholesome and nourishing dish with ancient grains, stone fruit salsa and a charred citrus vinaigrette; Hand Made Pizza, enjoy classic flavours amped up with house made oils; West Coast Cioppino, a bursting bowl of seafood featuring salmon, ling cod, clams and prawns in fragrant fennel saffron broth.
A happy hour will run 4:00pm – 6:00pm, Thursday – Saturday. Drink offerings will include $5 sangria, draught beer and well drinks. Diners can gather and graze over an array of plates priced from $5-15, including hand-made pizzas, chicken wings and “Hipster Vegan Sliders.” On tap, patrons may enjoy an array of local brews, including Time & Place Lager made by Central City Brewers, with a portion of sales from Time & Place Lager going to Burnaby Hospital Foundation.
Restaurant Manager Naveed Siddique leads the cocktail program, expect a lineup of fresh summer sippers like the Southern Peach, a bourbon and Aperol spiked iced tea with white peach puree and thyme. Fun-filled riffs include a Mai Tai with a hibiscus tea spin.
Weekend brunch will be served 11:00am – 2:00pm. Sweet or savoury, healthy or indulgent, there's a time and place for it all and the restaurant is dishing up plenty of options for patrons to choose from. Expect amped-up variations of the favourites such as beef brisket as an option with eggs benedict and a Croque Monsieur with the welcome addition of sweet onion jam. To celebrate its opening Time & Place will be offering a complimentary mimosa to patrons with brunch through August.
Time & Place will also be offering a Low n' Slow BBQ dinner experience Thursday to Saturday through August. This summer spread offers up four proteins: 12-hour pulled pork with maple whiskey BBQ sauce; a juicy dry-rubbed Canadian beef brisket; roast chicken and grilled Italian sausage. Complete with piles of sides including roasted potatoes, summer greens salad, creamed corn with double-smoked bacon, roasted tomatoes on the vine, charred green beans and house made bread. The Low n' Slow experience is available for dine-in or takeaway and generously feeds two adults for $65.
