Rainier Provisions is the new offering of the Heather Hospitality Group – with restaurants such as the Judas Goat, The Salty Tongue and Salt Tasting Room, The Heather Group has almost single-handedly changed the landscape of the Gastown Neighbourhood.
Rainier Provisions is located on the ground level of the historic Rainier Hotel. Their menu includes Breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings, as well as a coffee house and deli counter service. The menu is simple and tasty.
We ordered the Charcuterie Plate ($8) This is such a good deal for only eight bucks and it was more than enough for three of us. It comes with a choice of two salamis from their counter, plus bread and condiments. A good way to start our meal.
We also added a cheese plate ($8) which comes with two cheeses of your choice, plus bread and condiments. A good add-on if you’re having the Charcuterie Plate.
The restaurant has daily offerings and today it was a goat cheese and beets salad. So refreshing and good, the beets were organic and locally sourced. A great choice for a hot summer day.
Another daily offering was the egg salad sandwich and a half salad. ($10). The sandwich is a good size and I couldn’t believe how delicious egg salad could be. It had hints of curry and other spices I couldn’t put my finger on.
If visiting Rainier Provisions, definitely leave room for dessert! And order this one: Ice Cream Sandwich ($5). A gluten-free treat, this delicious dessert, not only will not hurt your wallet, it will leave you completely satisfied.
Most recently, Rainier Provisions has unveiled a Paris-style patio—the first of its kind in Vancouver. This stand-alone patio—situated between West Cordova Street and the public sidewalk—was approved by the City of Vancouver and the BC Liquor Board.
