Wishes + Luck Vancouver is newly opened on Commercial Drive beside Jam Jar. The space formally Lear Faye Espresso Kitchen faded without much memories. However the launch of Wishes and Luck seems promising with a nice cedar patio and a new partnership with Chef Ciaran Chung (formerly of Boneta and L’Abbatoir) and Dolly Reno.
I love the wooden theme interior with reclaimed fir wood tables and oak stools. They are actually pretty comfy too!
“I Got Lucky in East Van” tonight with an invite for their summer menu tasting. The name “Wishes and Luck” has bit of a romantic story behind it. You will have to ask Dolly herself next time you are in the restaurant!
Boozy Bowl: Pretty pond of Bourbon Bitter Sangria and campari and fresh cranberry puree. The perfect summer booze.
Bread and Butter service: My first thoughts were, it’s just bread and butter. I could pass. But this to my surprise was quite delicious. The bread is moist; buttery with a salty crunch.
Lucky Fish Taco: non-GMO soft shell corn tortilla, Ocean Wise fish and house fixings. A softer take on fish tacos. Pretty tasty of fresh fish with a hint of Asian flare.
White Sangria citrus focused with BC Blueberries.
Asparagus Salad: smoked egg cooked perfectly ajitama with a soft boiled center. Tender asparagus, peewee potatoes and taleggio cheese. A nice summer salad that isn’t too normcore with arugula and lettuces.
Meatballs and Cheesy Toast: basil pesto with pecorino cheese. Who doesn’t like meatballs? Who doesn’t like meatballs when done right? There is a nice season and savoriness to these meatballs. And the cheese? Just brings out the kid in our soul!
Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Tart: This tart is just beautiful to look at. It brings out that fat kid out! Fun jujubes colors with raspberries, lemon curd and meringue.
Wishes + Luck
