Have You Checked Out These 3 New Vancouver Restaurants Yet?

A trio of new rooms worth exploring: Dovetail, Kapow and Sula.

1. Golden State

Dovetail restaurant dishes

The aim of Yaletown’s new Dovetail restaurant is to transport you from soggy Vancouver to sunny California (drinks like the verdita-rita, made with Casamigos Blanco tequila, triple sec, verdita, agave and lime do the trick). But that doesn’t mean it’s not cozy: the menu offerings skew toward comfort food, from pasta to ribeyes to bang bang shrimp.

Opened November 2023 | 1079 Mainland St.

2. Wheel Deal

Kapow food truck burgers

A fresh smashburger spot has rolled up to Electric Bicycle Brewing. The Kapow food truck serves six onomatopoeic burgs (the Boom has jalapeno jack cheese and chipotle sauce; the vegan Wham contains a breaded sweet potato patty) plus sides like tater tots and potato salad. Electric Bicycle’s Sports pilsner feels like an apt add-on to your mononymous meal.

Opened December 2023 | 20 E 4th Ave.

3. Since You’ve Been Naan

Sula dishes

Vanmag Restaurant Award Best Indian finalist Sula has established a faithful following in East Van (locations on Main Street and Commercial are always buzzing), and now a new neighbourhood is getting curried away: Sula Davie has arrived.

Opened February 2024 | 1708 Davie St.
