But seriously... as I recall, it's still Parks Board land, and Cactus just rents the space; the Parks Board was looking several years ago to put a high-end restaurant there, but had very specific requirements (had to fit in, be built to green standards, etc.), and Cactus won the bid

Here it is: Cactus Club wins English Bay spot - British Columbia - CBC News

Quote:
The Vancouver Park Board, which manages the site for the city, is guaranteed nearly $250,000 a year in badly-needed cash from the operator once the new facility opens in the summer of 2011.
And: English Bay may see new cafe on old concession site | CTV British Columbia

Quote:
Revenue from the bistro will be $1.2 million over five years, which would come from the restaurant's set rent of $240,000 a year, according to a March 12 Vancouver Parks & Recreation report.

Well, it's a small store, I think something like 120-130 seats... but it's sure to be insanely busy in the summer. There's almost as much seating on the patio as there is inside, and they have the walk-up concession as well.

I was there yesterday and it didn't seem like there was that many seats. The Coal Harbour location is supposed to have 500 seats inside, and 200 seats on the patio.

Coal Harbour will be massive - I've seen the space, the best word for it is "cavernous".

It's the separate building on the other side of the cauldron from the Convention Center.

Its pretty disappointing that the earls/joeys/local/cactus group is taking all this nice real estate all over vancouver/everywhere in western Canada. I mean, the food is fine-ish, but it would be nice to get some great food to go with these great locations.

Pretty sure the Cactus at Broadway/Granville made 8+mil last year. I'm guessing this one will probably make at least 15-20mil.

I'm just happy we're benefiting from better food (vs concession) and the city makes $ out of it.

yesss...


to mention a couple basic items...

a spinach salad with fresh spinach, goat cheese , balsamic , green apple and fresh beets is damn near concession food.

So is a 4 mushroom hunters chicken with flash fried string beans and herbed fingerling potatoes.

Sorry man....the quality of menu items can't be determined off of a menu description. They aren't going to write "chemical coated peruvian imported spinach, cheap balsamic, processed nuclear warfare survivable goat cheese salad"

Pretty understated, actually... if you want an acid trip without actually dropping acid, go across the street to Milestones and check out their bathrooms.
