      One of Vancouver's best-known Chinese restaurants started serving dinners at its West Georgia location in December after a 15-month hiatus.

      But today, Mott 32 made it official by announcing that it's welcoming guests back in time for Lunar New Year.

      The company behind Mott 32 is Maximal Concepts of Hong Kong. 

      "Vancouver is so aligned with our sustainability and ethical sourcing values and has such a great abundance of topnotch ingredients for the team," Maximal Concepts cofounder Malcolm Wood said in a news release. "It makes so much sense for us to be here, and we're looking forward to working with those local suppliers again here."

      Traditional Cantonese cuisine is just one of the choices on the Mott 32 menu.

      Mott 32 executive chef Hongwei He oversees the preparation of cuisine from different parts of China in addition to traditional Cantonese dishes. The recipes were designed by chef Lee Man Sing.

      There's also a dim sum chef, Jian Hui Li, who has extensive knowledge of northern Chinese cooking. And chef Chen Sheng Hu oversees the barbecue dishes.

      Wine director Robert Stelmachuk manages an extensive collection of vintages.

      Mott 32 was designed by Joyce Wang, who incorporated many Chinese elements into the room, including bird-cage booths. The restaurant has five private dining rooms.

      Different areas of Mott 32 were designed with their own themes.
