Fresh from quitting Bambudda, Eater Young Guns 2014 semi-finalist for Western Canada, bartender Buck Friend is leaving Gastown and heading to Kitsilano to take up a role with Abigail's Party. James Iranzad, owner of Abigail's and co-owner of Wildebeest and Bufala is delighted:
We first met at Abigail's during Buck's time at Maenam and it's great to have him back in the neighbourhood. He's as crazy as he is talented, which makes him a perfect fit for Abigail's and our extended restaurant family. Josh (Pape) and I are looking forward to working with him.In an email to Eater, Friend said, "It's going to be lots of fun and learning, I am super excited to join the team and bring some new and exciting cocktails to Kits."
Brunch just got a lot more interesting.
