Coming Soon: Upscale Dining in Downtown Squamish

A new off-ramp to contemporary Pacific Northwest cuisine will open up on the Sea-to-Sky Highway later this summer in downtown Squamish. Located at 37991 Second Ave, The Salted Vine Kitchen + Bar brings upscale dining to the heart of historic downtown Squamish.

It will boast a 70-seat dining room and lounge and 20-seat patio, a full bar featuring house made cocktails, an array of notable wines selected from BC and around the globe and local craft beer on tap as well as a diverse seasonal menu of share plates comprising locally sourced ingredients that showcase the very best of the Pacific Northwest.  The Salted Vine represents a collaboration between industry veterans and longtime friends and colleague Jeff Park –who will take the reins in the kitchen as executive chef — and Pat Allan, who will lead the front-of-house team as restaurant director and sommelier. Allan, a fixture in the Whistler restaurant scene for the better part of three decades, served most recently as restaurant manager and sommelier at award-winning Araxi Restaurant + Oyster Bar since 2002, while Park began his career at Araxi in 2003 as chef de partie and went on to oversee the back of house at Calgary’s Blink Restaurant & Lounge and Chef’s Table at Kensington Riverside Inn before returning to Araxi in 2011 for a four-year term as chef de cuisine. While the restaurant will initially open for happy hour and dinner service, lunch and weekend brunch service will be introduced in the fall.

“As both of us already call Squamish home, it’s been a real labour of love for us to work within this truly vibrant and close-knit community, while introducing a new dining experience for our friends, neighbours and visitors,” said Park. “We’re thrilled to be able to open a restaurant that offers a unique space for all sorts of occasions, whether it’s date night, a business meeting or a casual bite while passing through the Sea-to-Sky.”
