Location: Settlement Building, 55 Dunlevy Avenue, Vancouver
Meal: Featured wine, roasted cauliflower, sable fish, avocado humus, and C.C. Jentsh Cab/Merlot.
Atmosphere: Beautiful building, immediately impressed by the door and then equally impressed by the second door. Day light still peaking in at 6 shining through the large windows facing the east side. Loved the decor, atmosphere, open kitchen, bar, everything!
Service: Friendly bartenders, awesome personalities and greeted me as soon as I pulled into the bar. Food was a little slow but I had good company so it didn't seem as long.
Bottom line: The Belgard Kitchen likes a lot of my Instagram photos and from a brand awareness perspective it's a smart move. When my friend mentioned Postmark Breweries for dinner, I immediately clued in that The Belgard Kitchen was in there (PUMPED). So I made it in just before happy hour ended and ordered the feature happy hour wine which was the merlot. Also, please let me point out how happy I was that they served wine in a brewery place. I thought that it may conflict with the whole concept of a brewery. The feature wine was ok, the second glass which I chose the C.C. Jentsch cab/merlot blend was AMAZING. Highly recommend that one for a cheaper price point (although I'm no wine extraordinaire, my mouth told me it was tasty).
As for the food, we ordered the avocado humus with pita bread, the bread was seasoned perfectly and the dip with the pita played gentle music in my mouth. The surprise of the night belonged to the roasted cauliflower... How can cauliflower taste so amazing? the aroma, the roasted taste, the tomatoes, the perfect symphony of smell, taste, and textures.
Sable fish was equally as good along with the curry smear but my only complaint is that the pieces of fish felt a bit small for the price.
Out the door price: 4 glasses of wine, 3 dishes, around $80 plus tip
Repeat: Yes, I had a very memorable night based on the service, food, wine, and company. Highly recommended.
