New Richmond IKEA restaurant is bigger and better
With its grand opening tomorrow (April 25), the new IKEA in Richmond is sure to draw crowds this week. (It’s at 3320 Jacombs Road, next to the old building.) The new restaurant is massive: it’s morphed from 110 seats in the old location to over 600 seats and is quite stylish. A bright, pleasant place to take a break, it has cheery art, a cute kids area, and walls of windows offering views of the North Shore mountains. Service is still cafeteria-style—and yes, you can get a plate of Swedish meatballs with all the fixings for as little as $2.99 (on weekdays). For info, see www.ikea.ca/.
