West Oak is a premiere Vancouver-based brunch, lunch, and dinner restaurant that has won many fans on the west coast. Now they’re about to open a Toronto location in our very own King West neighborhood. Consider this amazing news for fans of locally sourced, fine cuisine!
In the last few years, more west coast restaurants have sought to expand to eastern Canada with a new location in Toronto. West Oak appears to be continuing in this same vein. Though they might not be Toronto-made, we say the more, the merrier. Details are scarce on exactly where and when, however the addition of West Oak is no doubt going to contribute to the fun, inviting atmosphere on the neighborhood’s busier streets.
In Vancouver, West Oak plays like a hub for brunch, lunch, dinner, and drinks. The brand works from sustainable, locally-sourced ingredients, which is something that’s sure resonates to Torontonians. Also, to this point, how the local Vancouver menu could adapt to the different environment here in eastern Canada might mean some new menu items to look forward to.
West Oak opened in the spring of 2013 in Vancouver’s historic district and since then, has become a major part of that area’s sophisticated, cosmopolitan vibe. For fine cuisine or a romantic dinner for two – check out West Oak. Thinking of grabbing some evening drinks on a summer patio somewhere in the city – go to West Oak. Are you up early on a Sunday and need to find somewhere to dig into brunch – West Oak’s got you covered there, too.
Since opening, West Oak has maintained a commitment to sourcing naturally raised, grass-fed beef, fresh seafood delivered daily, free-range chicken from local Fraser Valley farmers, and gathering only local produce and herbs.
Like the biggest city on the west coast has, Toronto is another marketplace where trends have increasingly turned towards fresh, quality restaurant food that is locally sourced and ethically raised.
As we get ready to welcome West Oak to King West, this will make another name you can add to the growing collection of hot-spot restaurants re-branding the neighborhood. As one of Toronto’s top hot spots in the west end, King West is an amazing location to pick up some drinks and cuisine in before heading deeper downtown to catch a Blue Jays or Leafs game, to take in a movie premiere, or to simply enjoy the vibes of downtown Toronto. Coming soon, be sure to keep your eyes open for West Oak’s first appearances in the months to come!
