Blacktail Vancouver Gastown | New Name New Chef

[image_with_animation image_url=”10802″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

This is our revist to Blacktail in Gastown after it renamed itself from Blacktail Florist, got a new chef, new bartender and a completely new menu with a modernist approach. Compared to our prior visit, Blacktail has a full house on a school night. Likely we were able to grab the last table.

Taking care of your stomach is Executive Chef Geoff Rogers, a Top Chef Canada joins Vancouver from Calgary. Arthur Wynne is your master mixologist who previously work at The Union and UVA Wine & Cocktail Bar.

Blacktail is part of Bite BC – where you can get 50% off your bill. If you haven’t heard of Bite BC yet, you can read about it here and download it now!

White Lady: Bit of an old fashion cocktail complete with gin, thyme infused Cointreau, lemon juice, egg white and simple syrup. Neither sweet nor overly bitter.

Albacore Tuna Crudo 17: BC Tuna sashimi with crispy pork belly, tonnato sauce with squid ink and mayo, fried pork rinds chicharron for crunch and texture.

Rangeland Bison Tartare 17: A well seasoned bison petite tender served with spelt crackers with sprinkle of truffle and kale puree aioli. Such a lovely tartare. I really like the robust smokiness of the flavors. The bison meat is not gamey at all. This could be one of the best tartare in Vancouver.

Farmcrest Farms Chicken 25: Do not be alarmed if you see pink. The chicken is brined and slow cooked to maintain tenderness. Served with a piece of thigh and breast and comes with corn pudding, heirloom carrots and wild mushrooms. The chicken is a tad salty. The brine could be use a little less salt.

We had such an enjoyable evening and having 50% off our meal was a bonus.
