Vancouver - Feenies Alums ?
Seattle poster heading to Vancouver next weekend - Last time we were there was 2 years ago, and were wowed by Feenies -, and have followed the soap oprea from a far -
HAve any Alums opened up spots we should check out ? More in the idea of Feenies rather than Lumiere
Tina Firenzi at Flying Tiger
Ned Bell owns Cabana Bar & Grille
Guy Leggett is at Cru (hardly mentioned anywhere, but the two times I've been there i had really great meals and the wine list is great esp considering the small space.)
Chow is gone
Chow was also pretty good. Though not good value and the lack of parking made it hard to ever organize dinners at both Chow or Cru.
I'd wondered what happen to Marnie Colham, Feenie's sous and co-author of his cookbooks and appeared on his tv show.
asked feenies mom and she said she was working out east somewhere.
i believe she is married to Chef Guy Leggatt at Sirocco Golf Course, not sure if they work together.
imho, lumiere was the destination and feenie's was the add-on. as far as cooks are concern. you would want to hire the cooks that worked for lumierre's not feenie's.
there is a dinstinct difference.. it wouldnt work for a feenie's cook to open a place like Lumiere's :-D
