      After quite a lengthly wait, fans of local Lebanese food eatery Nuba will be happy to know that it has reopened its Yaletown location in a stylish new location.

      The restaurant has moved around the corner and down the block from its decade-old habitation at 1206 Seymour Street to 508 Davie Street (at Richards), in a corner spot formerly occupied by Blenz Coffee.


      The new location, which opened on January 26, is around 1,200 square feet and seats 41 people in a variety of configurations (including alcoved booths), with an additional 24 on the patio.

      With numerous light-inviting windows, the airy space features a white backdrop enlivened by an upbeat pastel palette and retro patterning, with pointed Middle Eastern arches and curves framing the welcoming room.

      The health-oriented menu features appetizers like garden falafels and chicken tawook with hummus, soups and salads, entrées ranging from vegan stew to lamb kibbeh, and pitas.


      For the moment, their lunch menu is being served all day at the Yaletown location but they will soon be launching their brunch, dinner, and wine, beer, and cocktail menu soon.

      Launched in 2003 by Victor Bouzide, who sought to share his grandmother's recipes, Nuba also has locations in in Gastown (207 West Hastings Street), Mount Pleasant (146 East 3rd Avenue), and Kitsilano (3116 West Broadway).
