      Here are a few brief notes about new eateries coming our way.

      All-natural meat

      If you're looking for organic meat, free of hormones, chemicals or genetically modified organisms, there'll be a new option in the West End to consider in the near future.

      Pasture to Plate will be opening a deli and grill at 1972 Denman Street in the former C-Lovers location.

      An opening date has not been determined yet.

      P2P, which offers organic beef, lamb, pork, chicken, and turkey, runs a certified organic ranch and supplies all the meats at KiNiKiNiK Restaurant, Store, and Accommodations, both in Redstone, B.C.

      While P2P also operates a butcher shop in East Vancouver at 1420 Commercial Drive (which opened in November 2011), co-owner Felix Schellenberg says the West End location will be larger and offer food from the grill, such as hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, steak sandwiches, and kabobs. There will also be beef and poultry broths and frozen meals and sauces available for purchase.

      Stay tuned for more details to come.

      A new milestone

      Milestones Park Royal in West Vancouver is currently closed for renovations and will reopen on June 20 with a revamped look and an indoor/outdoor bar and patio.

      The restaurant first opened at 1096 Park Royal South in 1995.

      Pizza plant

      Virtuous Pie is setting up an eatery specializing in plant-based, locally sourced handcrafted pizza, nut-based cheese, and ice cream at 583 Main Street in Chinatown.

      It will open sometime in late summer so stay tuned for further details.
