Save On Meats reopening on February 14
Nearly five months after the closure of Save On Meats (43 West Hastings Street), owner Mark Brand has announced that the restaurant will reopen Friday (February 14).
“On Valentine’s Day we will open our doors for breakfast and outside of any natural disaster, plan to never close again. Ever,” Brand stated in a news release.
In an interview with the Georgia Straight, Brand explained that the Save On Meats building was purchased by Vancouver-based real estate developers Anthem Properties, and closed in September 2013 for seismic upgrades to the top-three floors, ground floor, and sub-basement. During the closure, Save One Meats operated as a pop-up restaurant and test kitchen at 1 West Cordova, the original location for Brand’s now-closed Boneta restaurant.
Brand stated that Save On Meats currently has a partnership with Anthem Properties to stay in its location until 2034.
