A love of all things local has been one of the greatest trends to take root in the city’s restaurant industry over the last decade—but a new spot in Yaletown is doing things a little differently. While showcasing the best that B.C. has to offer, WildTale Coastal Grill celebrates the coastal culinary scene as a whole, serving up everything from Alaskan king crab legs to Prince Edward Island mussels to Nova Scotia scallops to arctic char from the Northwest Territories. It all makes for the kind of seafood feast your Prairie relatives would kill for.
In the former home of Glowbal Grill and Satay Bar, WildTale is brought to you by John Crook and Erik Heck, the duo behind the Flying Pig. Both used to work at Glowbal Grill and held many other positions in kitchens in Vancouver and elsewhere before opening their first venture’s three locations. While the Flying Pig has something for everyone, WildTale focuses almost exclusively on the stuff of the sea.
