For most Vancouverites, Yaletown’s Goldfish restaurant needs no introduction. Owned by renowned Vancouver restaurateur Bud Kanke and the sister-restaurant of the famous Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House, Goldfish has long been a local favourite, inspiring a loyal following both in Yaletown and across the Lower Mainland. I’ve met people from Burnaby to Delta that travel to Vancouver just to dine at Goldfish.
Still, Goldfish didn’t achieve its accolades and popularity by resting on its laurels. Always dynamic, the restaurant upped the ante last month by renaming itself Goldfish Seafood & Chops (formerly Goldfish Pacific Kitchen) and revitalizing its menu and identity by focusing on strong, clean flavours, simple and perfectly-prepared seafood, and gorgeous meats.
Don’t worry: the beloved Braised Beef Short Ribs are still there—along with other signature dishes—but now you can pair your favourites with an array of new seafood options, from Goldfish’s premium oysters to the famous Joe Fortes Seafood Tower.
