Glowbal, the new flagship restaurant is located in downtown Vancouver’s TELUS Garden. After closing the original Glowbal Grill Steaks & Satay on December 31, 2014 in preparation for the brand’s relocation this summer, the new 17,000 square-foot Glowbal is fresh, confident and unapologetically chaotic.
The new Glowbal is a full-on feast for the senses, starting with stripped down North American cuisine from executive chef Pedro Gonzalez. The dynamic, lively open kitchen features Canada’s first custom built Robata grill, taking the highly acclaimed satays from Yaletown’s original Glowbal Grill to a whole new level. Other menu standouts include the famous Truffled Spaghetti & Signature Meatballs; Queso Fundido (chorizo, oaxaca cheese, navajo fry bread, charred jalapeño); Chili & Garlic Fried Sea Bass (sweet chili glaze, papaya coleslaw); and Miso Marinated Sablefish (shiitake consommé, soba noodle salad, sesame). Thirsty guests will find a carefully curated wine list complete with old and new world vintages, plus rare cellar gems, and an inventive cocktail list filled with playful yet sophisticated creations crafted with a daring approach and classic execution.
“North America’s incredibly diverse cuisine has always intrigued us with its abundance of flavours, availability of products and of course the famous fresh west coast seafood,” added Yacoub. “We’ve brought these elements together to create a menu that is at once adventurous, approachable and delicious.”
Thanks to the vibrant, open space created by Box Interior Design, guests can enjoy an incredible experience from any table, whether they prefer to people watch, thrive in the thick of the action, or feel like they have the place to themselves.
Large parties have their pick of the widest selection of private dining rooms in the city, each space offering a distinct personality (think gold wallpaper VS. quilted leather cladding) and ranging from 12 to 60 seats.
Those looking to dine under the stars can snag their very own human-sized bird cage booth on the 150-seat patio, an expansive space framed by the dramatic wood-and-glass awning, a contemporary piece considered to be Vancouver’s new architectural landmark, and bordered by a row of fireplaces for that added touch of warmth
