Burdock & Co Earns Coveted Michelin Star

Burdock & Co earns Michelin Star, sister restaurant Bar Gobo named amongst
Michelin Recommended

Burdock & Co and Bar Gobo have earned a place in the new Michelin Guide Vancouver, with Burdock and Co earning a coveted star and sister restaurant Bar Gobo named amongst Michelin Recommended.

On October 27, Michelin announced its debut restaurant selections for its inaugural Vancouver guide. Chefs learned whether their teams had earned a Michelin Star, which is awarded to restaurants considered the very best in their destination; a Bib Gourmand, which honours restaurants that deliver the best value for money; and other Michelin Guide distinction, including Michelin Recommended.

Burdock & Co, located in Mount Pleasant, was honoured as one of eight Vancouver restaurants to receive a coveted Michelin Star. The atmospheric eatery is a love letter to the Pacific Northwest, celebrating its tangle of islands, coastlines and valleys with ingredients sourced from local growers, farmers and foragers. Burdock & Co’s ever-evolving menu is complemented by a curated list of responsibly-made wines expertly paired to each dish.

Bar Gobo, located in Strathcona, was one of 40 restaurants recognized as Michelin Vancouver Guide Recommended. Opened in spring 2020, the intimate wine bar serves a share-style menu of seasonal delights inspired by the bounty harvested by local farmers and fishers.

“Burdock & Co’s Michelin star means the world to me and my incredible team,” said Andrea Carlson, chef and owner of Burdock & Co and Bar Gobo. “I’m extremely proud of everyone in the Burdock & Co and Bar Gobo family for the hard work they put in daily to ensure our restaurants consistently exceed expectations. Over the past few years, we’ve overcome all odds to open a new restaurant and make it through the pandemic stronger than ever. Now, on the heels of Bar Gobo’s opening and Burdock & Co’s upcoming 10-year anniversary, this honour is even more meaningful.”
