TOFINO TO THE MAINLAND: TACOFINO BRINGS ITS CELEBRATED BRAND OF MEXICAN-INSPIRED CUISINE TO VANCOUVER’S YALETOWN THIS JULY
Latest Addition to Tacofino Family of Restaurants Features 40-seat Dining Room and 16-seat Patio, Full Bar and Take-Out Service
Tacofino will start serving up its signature eclectic, Mexican-inspired cuisine in a new neighbourhood this summer when it opens the doors on a new counter-service restaurant in the heart of Vancouver’s Yaletown district.
Located at 1025 Mainland Street, Tacofino Yaletown will feature a 40-seat dining room and 16-seat patio, a full bar and take-out service similar to its Burrito Bar, which opened at 15 West Cordova Street in Gastown in 2014. Vancouver designer Shiloh Sukkau, who oversaw the décor of Tacofino’s flagship location in Gastown, once again applied her talents to the layout of the new restaurant, which will evoke the same sort of laidback, surf-centric style that inspired Tacofino’s trademark cuisine.
Tacofino Yaletown is the latest addition to an ever-expanding Tacofino brand that began with the original Tacofino Cantina in Tofino, BC and now includes a fleet of food trucks, three brick-and-mortar restaurants in Vancouver and Victoria, a legion of ardent followers and a lineup of products that are Ocean Wise-approved, antibiotic- and hormone-free, raised ethically and made locally.
“We’re excited to bring Tacofino to a new Vancouver neighbourhood,” says Jason Sussman, who cofounded the company with Kaeli Robinsong in 2009. “We appreciate Vancouver’s continued support and can’t wait to open our next location.”
Further details regarding Tacofino’s new restaurant will be revealed in the coming months.
