Last weekend, Kevin and I were treated to a lovely Brunch hosted by the talented young chefs of Cinnabar: Zach Poole and Neil Hillbrandt. The two have been composing true one-of-a-kind menus over the past few months including concoctions such as Venison Tartare with juniper and pickled shallots, bitter chocolate, and quail yolk with baguette and desserts like Oolong white cake, flan brûlé with hibiscus juelly, macerated blackberries and edible flowers. Needless to say, their fan base has grown, so much so that they decided to expand beyond dinners and offer Brunch Sessions.
The current Cinnabar dining space is located in a smoke free East Vancouver loft with a lovely view, accommodating a dozen guests at a time. Adults and their young ones alike are welcome to try the new and exciting creations.
Pastries are available a la carte including fresh croissants baked on-site.

I had been looking forward to this Brunch for weeks and the boys did not disappoint! I am already salivating just thinking about what they have in store for this month's session!
