Runaway success is what everyone reads, writes and dreams about in this business. Very few of us get the chance to soak it up and it can seem flighty and fleeting at the best of times when it does land. When the stars align and the people come then the real work starts.
A deft team in a beautiful room serving inspired fare with grace is one of the most satisfying endeavours one can hope to achieve. And when the magic does happen, it leads to a knock and then another and then there are more opportunities than could have been foreseen. Opening the door to opportunity sometimes involves exiting one beautiful room for another. With greater challenges and even greater success that demands to be seized.
But I’m here to talk about that first room. And a second one.
Vancouver has a small, tightly knit and dedicated community that works feverishly every night to deliver world-class experiences that highlight the bounty that beautiful BC has to offer. And one of our own industry leaders has become available. With all this in mind, we’re very grateful to showcase the esteemed Farmer’s Apprentice along with Grapes & Soda. Now available.
If you’re like me, you’ve already had a memorable experience delivered by owners David Gunawan and Dara Young. You’ll have read the reviews, heard about the awards and know that you should call ahead if you want to get a seat. You’ll also notice that given the know-how and a steady hand leading the operation you design, there is already a built in amount of culinary attention to this space waiting for your concept and your success story. At unique spaces like Farmer’s Apprentice there is a palpable feeling that generates the interest of locals and visitors alike. At the edge of Downtown within quick access of major hotels and density as well as being ideally suited for traffic from both the east and west sides of Vancouver using Broadway and plenty of parking available in multiple parking lots within a block’s walk, the diligence portion of your ‘ideal location’ research has been greatly assisted.
And there is plenty of ink and otherwise dedicated to the safety of starting small. There’s also a lot of skill that can be appreciated in small rooms. Skill that sometimes gets lost in the caverns of corporate downtown feed lots. At Grapes & Soda, there is already a success story showing that Vancouverites will support a well-crafted concept that deliver intriguing menu options with carefully thought out service and bar programs. You might be thinking of one right now as you’re reading this.
As in any city, when people fall in love with a space, it becomes a collective interest. Just on curiosity alone, the community will venture to embrace the next in line as a matter of concern. With so much success behind an address, the willing always out-weigh the doubtful. It’s confidence and excellence that brings them back a second time. With friends, family and your future success.
We hope you’ll consider these two unique opportunities as a whole or independently. And also understand our request for your discretion and respect of the staff as well.
