Burdock & Co seeks inspiration from British Columbia’s tangle of islands and coastlines, sourcing ingredients from local growers, farmers, and foragers and presenting them in a fluid culinary experience.
In May 2013, Andrea Carlson opened her cozy neighbourhood eatery at the East End of bohemian Main Street. Her farm-to-table philosophy intrigued and enchanted diners, and the restaurant soon earned a reputation as a pioneer of naturalist food and drink. Now, Burdock & Co is recognized internationally as a welcoming haven that encourages patrons to slow down, connect, and linger over a shared meal.
Since opening its doors, the restaurant has collected a number of impressive accolades, including recognition in the 2018 Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants, among the top 22 restaurants in B.C. Burdock & Co also won the Gold award for “Best Brunch” and “Best West Coast” at the 2018 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards, and was recognized in the “Best East Van” category. For two consecutive years, Burdock & Co has also received the Platinum award for Wine Program Excellence at the Vancouver International Wine Festival. And, most recently, the restaurant earned a coveted star in the MICHELIN Guide Vancouver.
Marrying professional service with a relaxed and approachable vibe, Burdock & Co showcases a thoughtfully curated set menu that changes each month and a signature method of cooking that allows raw materials to shine. Andrea has spent more than a decade building relationships with regional farmers and growers from whom she sources seasonal ingredients daily. Her cooking is vibrant, earthy and delicate, complemented by a careful selection of responsible wines, craft beers and bespoke cocktails. Every aspect of Burdock & Co reflects Andrea and her team’s commitment to respecting the land, employing artisanal techniques and enjoying simple and honest food.
