2018 is among us and that means we have a full year of exploring new eateries around the city. There’s a plethora of restaurants already expected to open up shop this month.

New Restaurants Opening In Vancouver 


Aleph Middle Eastern Eatery


A Middle-Eastern eatery is in the works for Vancouver and is expected to open any day now at 1889 Powell Street. They’re keeping the mystery alive with their menu for now but it will have lots of mezze-style dishes that integrate BC flavours with ones from the Middle East.

Blue Heron Creamery


Calling all cheese lovers—this is not for the lactose intolerant. They’re opening their very first storefront early this year at 2410 Main Street. Find a plethora of cheeses and eats at this spot.



Pasta and wine—what more could you ask for? The new eatery will be at 4811 Main Street. Expect lots of pasta dishes, as well as salumi, terrines and veggie-friendly eats.


Aces Pizza Shop


We can never have too many pizza places on Granville Street. This joint is set to open this month at 902 Granville Street.

Electric Bicycle Brewing


This brewery will serve up some tasty beers and gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. They’re on tap to open later this month at 20 East 4th Avenue.
