Unapologetically Plant-based. This casual fine-dining joint incorporates organic, local and compassionate ingredients to create culinary creative but comforting meals that are filling, nutritious and delicious!
Dear friends & valued customers,
It is with a heavy heart but with an eye on the future that I write to inform you that Graze Restaurant will be closing on Sunday, November 22, 2015.
It has been a wonderful experience serving you for the past 3 years while promoting the acceptance & adoption of a plant-based diet. I believe that we have demonstrated clearly that vegan cuisine is not just environmentally responsible and compassionate to other creatures and healthy for our bodies, but that it can also be creative, hearty, satiating and delicious! And you have told us definitively that you agree!
A great many factors have gone into making this difficult decision. Not only have we been planning our retail products division, focused on our non-dairy nut-based cheeses, but also about the long-term viability of our current location.
Our next location will need a larger commercial kitchen for our cheese production and proper cheese storage space. While actively searching, an offer to take over our current location came along. Although months sooner than we would have preferred, it was a reasonable opportunity – one that will allow us to pursue our other goals sooner.
This deal came along out of the blue and is completing quickly! We only just released our new fall/winter menu last week and changed the Park menu to Jamaican the week before that! We are scheduled to be part of several upcoming food festivals and events as well as Dine Out Vancouver, The Wellness Show and Savour Our Neighbourhood events! We’ve developed our Holiday Feast menu and are in the midst of a dessert menu switchover. We’ve also just this last week added new beer selections to the taps and wines to the list. That’s how unexpected this was to us, but we were looking for a change, saw the various merits of this deal and are embracing it as a step in the right direction!
Please come in to dine with us any or every night until we close the doors after next weekend. If you have a gift certificate or a Graze credit, even if it has expired, please come and use them. All will be honoured when we re-open, but even we don’t yet know where that will be. Our various cheeses will be for sale all week in the restaurant while they last, so come on over for a last visit. We would love to see you.
Thank you so much for your unwavering support over the years.
NEW MENU RELEASED: CHECK IT OUT
CREATIVE, ORGANIC, SEASONAL, LOCAL, COMPASSIONATE & SIMPLY DELICIOUS!
Our concept from the very start was to provide people of all eating preferences something that they can really fall in love with. Whether you're a strict vegetarian who is starving for choice, a flexitarian who enjoys trying everything, or an omnivore who simply wants a familiar & satiating meal, Graze was created for you.
Graze's all plant-based menu incorporates as many locally & organically produced ingredients as possible. We also grow our own herbs & vegetables, collect rainwater for our garden, compost our kitchen waste, reduce/reuse/recycle everything we can, support ethical suppliers, reduce our power consumption, solar heat our hot water, are very particular about our paper & cleaning products and are always looking for ways to do even more.
And we really love to support community and great causes. Since 2013, we've had the honour of raising funds and awareness for some amazing organizations, whether environmentally or socially focussed. One of the many ways we support these causes is through fundraiser dinners; every Tuesday we choose a different organization to promote, and we donate 20% of all sales to the cause. As of July 2015 Graze has donated over $37,000 to various programs and charities.
Please join us for an adventurous culinary experience in our elegant dining room and cocktail lounge, where you'll enjoy comfortable seating, intimate lighting, interesting art covered walls. Alternatively, upstairs in our indoor 'Park' you'll have a casual and social experience in an environment that is unparalleled, anywhere! (click to read more about the Park) In both rooms, you'll be taken great care of by a professional staff that is truly happy to serve you.
