Vancouver's Flying Pig chain to open Victoria location at Yates and Wharf streets

Vancouver’s Flying Pig chain of restaurants will be expanding to Vancouver Island later this year with a location at Yates and Wharf streets in downtown Victoria, Citified has learned.

 
Highly regarded on the lower Mainland for its brunch fare and relaxed dining atmospheres, Flying Pig’s trio of vintage-inspired locations are situated in downtown Vancouver’s Yaletown and Gastown districts and in the former Olympic Village neighbourhood south of the downtown core.
 
“Our backgrounds are influenced by a strong Canadian work ethic and our roots are planted in kitchens all around Vancouver. We refer to our restaurant[s] as a ‘nouveau Canadian Bistro,’ reads a statement on company’s website. [Full article]

Know it all.

We've been to the Gastown and Yaletown locations. It's a good restaurant, and will compete with The Keg and Milestones. It's not cheap, but if you want cheap you'll go to The Warehouse around the corner.

Believe it or not, Mike K. and I dined there about 3 years ago, Yaletown location, day after a show we went to together in Vancouver at Rogers

 

EDIT:  September 2014.

I'd be extra excited about this if I thought the exterior of the building was going to be restored.

It was beautiful before the "moderization" began. Then it gradually was transformed...

Almost as bad as today:

Is the original building actually under there somewhere? If so, it must have been difficult getting those window openings in through all the layers of concrete and masonry...

That's the million dollar question. I suspect all those beautiful arches were forever lost during the mid-century moderne "update".  :(
