JOEY is calling its forthcoming spot its flagship location. The 9,500-square-foot, two-level restaurant will have a massive patio with a retractable roof, fire bowls, and unobstructed views of the water and downtown Vancouver.
Joey Shipyards will open on January 23, 2020.
It’s the 28th location for the group, which launched the first JOEY in 1992.
“We have seen significant growth over the last few years, with successful openings of new JOEY restaurants across Ontario and California,” Jeff Fuller, CEO of JOEY Restaurants, said in a statement. “We’re very excited to bring our collection of restaurants to North Vancouver and become a part of the local North Shore community. After successfully expanding east and south of the border, we knew opening a location in our own backyard with impressive views of Vancouver’s skyline would be an ideal next step that demonstrates the JOEY brand today.” (Fuller is the son of the late Leroy Earl “Bus” Fuller, founder of Earls.)
On the menu will be items such as sushi, Bombay chicken, ramen, and steak and lobster. Drinks will run the gamut from mocktails to espresso martinis.
Heading the kitchen is executive chef Chris Mills, under Joey executive director of culinary Matthew Stowe, a Top Chef Canada winner.
The Shipyards is also home to Larry's Market; soon to come are Nook, jamJar Canteen, and other eateries.
