Oh, lucky Victoria, all-conquering sandwich superstars, Meat and Bread are opening soon on Yates Street. This comes hot on the heels of the announcement that a Seattle opening could soon be in the cards too. We asked co-owner Cord Jarvie what's happening.
We'll be open in late Aug or early September. It'll be a similar layout to the Gastown store in another beautiful heritage building. Craig Stanghetta (Pidgin, Blacktail Florist) is doing the interior so it's going to be absolutely gorgeous. We will have full venting in this one (we don't at the other stores) which will allow us to smoke meats and expand on the sandwich range a little.
We're still working on a signature sandwich for this location but there will be Porchetta, a Daily Special and Vegetarian + Signature Sandwich on the menu. All local meats, beers and wines, as per normal. We have hired a bunch of talent from the island and we are taking a few people over to open it as well (including myself). I'm actually really excited; I know the food will be great and the room will be phenomenal. We are all looking forward to getting out to the island.
