I've searched the forums and am surprised this isn't on the list, but now the secret is out. They've made the long list for Air Canada's 2019 Top New Restaurants.




Nowhere is from the Hanks crew.


We stopped in the for the tasting menu. It one of those small unexpected places that consistently exceeds expectations for taste, presentation, local food and creativity.

I can't seem to get anyone to dine with me at this place. Perhaps I shouldn't tell them I want to dine Nowhere.  :rolleyes:

I walk by this place often and have never seen anyone inside. I had no idea it was so highly touted. Definitely will give it a try!

Pluvio in Ukee made #4. Makes a reso that much more difficult.

I’m sure I’ll be out that way this winter at some point. Will stop in if they are open. The previous spot, Norwoods, sure was good!

I tried to eat here twice.  I usually have no problem dining within 30 min anyplace as a solo diner when I travel in YYJ/SEA/PDX/YVR.  At least at the bar.  I've never been so off put by a host in my life. The first time: "we're full, come back tomorrow".   So I came back at opening the next day...doors are open, online says they're open. Host: "We're just printing the menus, so yeahhh".  Me: "so yeah what? Are you saying you're not open?" Host: *WALKS AWAY*.  Never experienced anything like it.  Also, there is a pencil sketch of Anthony Kiedis' penis at eye level as soon as you walk in the door.

Has anyone eaten here yet? Had 2 friends tell me they had to change and shower after going here due to extreme cooking smells in the restaurant.

It is a small space with an open kitchen, they cook a lot of meat, they serve a lot of booze. You will smell of the space after visiting.
