We’ve recently updated our website with all new Spring 2014 Menus

Sat, April 05, 2014

We're happy to announce that we finally pulled our heads out of the kitchen to update our website! Our regulars know that our menu changes regularly so what you see on our website is only a representation of what you can expect to see when you arrive. We pride ourselves on using farm fresh, organic and sustainable ingredients so when a supplier shows up with amazing food - we cook it! Sometimes it doesn't make it to the website grin

Our current menus and wine lists are posted as often as we can, and feel free to call ahead if you have questions!

We're also happy to share one of the most recent reviews we received in the Vancouver Sun - feel free to take a read! Veteran chef Scott Kidd decelerates and opens a bistro in North Vancouver.

For Immediate Release - January 8, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 8, 2013

A NEW CANYON TO TRAVERSE

North Vancouver, BC… Great new things for the New Year often start at home, and Chef Scott Kidd is starting 2013 with a brand new endeavour in his very own neighbourhood of Edgemont Village. Kidd will open Canyon in the former Edgemont Village Bistro by mid-January, just in time for Dine Out Vancouver. North and West Vancouverites need not worry about bridges to try something new, it’s right in your backyard. Canyon is located at 3135 Edgemont Blvd., North Vancouver.

Canyon is the essence of Scott Kidd and his journey through culinary life. A passion for food, love, respect and a healthy dose of light hearted fun, Canyon is described by Kidd as a neighbourhood joint; bistro style with casual elegance and always a sense of humour. The cuisine focuses on local products of course, some old style favourites (can you say Sunday night fondue?), Kidd’s legendary use of bits otherwise known as offal and of course, new items inspired by his new location.

About Chef Scott Kidd
Chef Scott Kidd has quite the history in the BC dining scene. Starting his culinary career at the renowned Sooke Harbour House on Vancouver Island, Kidd developed a passion for all things local long before it was a trend. Deciding on formal training, Kidd studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. His pedigree in Vancouver is a veritable who’s who of the best in Vancouver dining. He first hit the scene with Le Gavroche in its heyday of the mid to late 1980’s, then moved to create Lola’s and has held Executive Chef positions with some of the region’s finest restaurants including The William Tell, Bishop’s, Raincity Grill, Araxi (Whistler) and most recently Lift. This is a chef who started the “support local” movement in BC along with the likes of John Bishop and Robert Clark.

Canyon is located at 3135 Edgemont Blvd., North Vancouver.
