The city’s newest False Creek seawall hotspot is hosting a special 18-day festival for visitors to get a true taste of global caviar creations. Ancora, Vancouver’s hottest new restaurant serving up Peruvian and Japanese-inspired fare, launches the Caviar Festival from November 10-28.

Ancora’s kitchen is offering caviar creations cultivated from across the globe. Celebrated sushi master Chef Yoshi Tabo and Executive Chef Ricardo Valverde have curated a flavourful menu full of perfect caviar pairings. Savour a round of raw oysters topped with pressed cucumber, ponzu and Herring caviar; or a light salmon tartare with squid ink rice crisp and tuna caviar; or a hearty saffron linguini with uni butter sauce and Northern Divine Sturgeon caviar. Or simply sample a service of pure caviar from the likes of Germany, China, Spain or Italy with accompanying buckwheat potato blinis, crème fraîche and chives.

ancoraFor thirsty guests hoping to whet their appetite with tasty tipples, Ancora also offers daily cocktail hour Tuesday through Sunday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Bar Manager Matt Cooke, who boasts his own cult following, is featuring a versatile list of fresh cocktails and international wine varietals. Parched patrons can warm up with seasonal beverages such as mulled wine, combining flavours reminiscent of West Coast winters (think fir, cedar, apple and cranberry) with spices like cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. Or sip on a bubbly mix like the sparkling cocktail, complete with Quebranta pisco, house-made anise, clove and cinnamon spiced pineapple syrup, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, Aperol and sparkling wine.

‘Tis’ the season for holiday parties and Ancora’s light and airy dining space is the perfect venue for a picturesque party setting. The expertly designed dining room features soft modern lines that embrace the warmth and richness of the city’s waterfront landscape. The serene but sophisticated style room serves as a beautiful locale for seasonal events, both large and small.
