Here's a brief roundup of eateries that have recently opened or are about to open.
More pizza pizzazz
Yaletowners and West Enders will have a new pizza option to consider.
Firecrust Neopolitan Pizzeria will be opening in the space formerly occupied by Telus' LGBT–oriented Caya (Come As You Are) retail store at 808 Davie Street, which is currently undergoing renovations
Firecrust's first location was in Dallas, Texas, in 2014. In Canada, one opened in Lloydminster, Alberta, with another one soon to launch in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Other future locations include Arlington and Addison, Texas; Portland, Oregon; and Brandon, Manitoba.
The menu offers a range of Neopolitan pizzas, including Siciliana (with fire-roasted Italian sausage, ham, and roasted prosciutto) and vegetale (with marinated grape tomatoes, caramelized onions, kalamata olives, and more).
There are also a range of salads, and dessert calzones with s'mores or nutella.
Another one to Thai out
Amid a cluster of South Asian grocery stores and Asian bakeries, the cozy Eat Me Thai opened up a few months ago at 6364 Fraser Street near 49th Avenue with its array of flavourful, reasonably priced dishes.
The menu covers the usual suspects: curries, including a Hawaiian pineapple curry with shrimp; noodle dishes, including pad Thai (of course), laad nar (sautéed flat noodles with meat in gravy with egg, broccoli, and gai lan); and more.
The Juicery Co. announced today (May 3) that it will be expanding into East Vancouver by opening a new location at 4236 Main Street.
The new spot is aiming to open its doors in August.
It'll be the local cold-pressed juice company's fourth location, adding to the shops in Kitsilano, Lonsdale, and Edgemont.
The company, which runs a farm in Pemberton that it acquired last year to grow local and organic produce, offers bottled juices, nut mylk (made from pumpkin seed, almond, Brazil nut, or cashew and coconut), and cleanses.
