A new restaurant is set to open next month on November 17th, honouring the late Pat Quinn. The former Canuck’s player turned coach turned Part Owner of the Vancouver Giants died last year at the age of 71.
Known as “The Big Irishman,” the Pat Quinn Restaurant & Bar will honour his legacy. The establishment will be located at the Tsawwassen Springs (5133 Springs Boulevard) in Delta.
Ron Toigo, Majority Owner of the Vancouver Giants, mentioned in a media release how an icon such as Quinn should be acknowledged within the community.
“Pat Quinn was second to none in this community. He knew a lot about hockey and building a team both in an office and on the ice. Pat also knew a great restaurant, having eaten at a lot of the best ones around the world. We talked about this with Pat, and creating a restaurant with exceptional food and ambiance that everyone will feel comfortable at was something he was passionate about.”
Pat Quinn Restaurant & Bar is being described as “West Coast Grill” that will offer high-quality comfort food with a bit of flair, and of course, impeccable service.
“We will capture a lot of Pat’s accomplishments, and it will all be done in a very classy manner. There’s a lot to cover about the man, his community he cared so much about, and his favorite thing after hockey: going out to a really good restaurant,” said Toigo.
Michael Buble, Part Owner of the Vancouver Giants, also weighed in saying that Pat felt like a part of his family. “This is a wonderful way to remember Pat and his legacy.”
