Heather Hospitality Group Sets the Gold Standard

This year’s Golden Plate awards in the Georgia Straight saw the Heather Hospitality Group clean up, taking eight awards in total, including first place in two categories.

The Irish Heather retained its status as not only the best pub but also home to the best pub food in the city from last year’s awards. For an authentic Irish pub experience and a menu that takes the best the best of traditional Gastropub cuisine with plenty of modern variety and flair the Irish Heather can’t be beaten. 

Meanwhile Salt Tasting Room picked up recognition separately for it's status as a top wine bar and it's extensive local wine selection. Voters also decided Salt is one of the best spots in the city to take a date you met online.

It wasn’t just old hands in the Heather Group that received praise this year though – Judas Goat and Bitter Tasting Room were recognized as the best location for an imported beer list (Bitter) and best Tapas and best Spanish cuisine (Judas Goat). As new locations Bitter and Judas Goat have succeeded in earning reputations as some of the top spots in Vancouver amid fierce competition and we are rightly proud of their achievements.

The Heather Hospitality Group is also proud of another award as well – as Gastown was voted the best spot in the city for restaurants. 

Congratulations to all your staff, are fellow Gastown restauranteurs and every Georgia Straight Golden Plate Awards winner.
