Written By Guest Writer Places / Restaurants / SH / Victoria Oct 9, 2014 Glo Restaurant & Lounge Joins the EAT Storehouse Community SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest EAT is excited to welcome Glo into the Storehouse, our growing curated group of local restaurants, wineries, shops and more. Glo radiates west coast: it is on the water, they have great drinks and awesome food. These traits all come together, along with a great atmosphere, to create a wonderful dining experience or night out. In the summer take to the awesome patio, and in the winter stay warm inside and enjoy the views. Read their storehouse below, and then click the link at the bottom for the rest!Eat, drink, celebrate. It’s a mantra that Glo takes to heart, whether it’s serving their West Coast fusion cuisine, creating unique seasonal cocktails, or introducing guests to their wonderful view.The restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows and wraparound patio make great vantage points for the peaceful and picturesque Selkirk Waterway, an idyllic sheltered harbour. With a cold beer in the summer, or a specialty coffee and blanket in the winter, it’s one of the best hangouts in the city.Creative, fresh and local West Coast Cuisine Of course, you’ll want something to eat with that. Glo’s newly revamped West Coast menu features longtime local favourites as well as new, Asian and Mediterranean-inspired fusion cooking courtesy of new Executive Chef Ryan Hayter (formerly of Fetch Restaurant at the Ocean Front Resort in Uclulet.) From Saltspring Island mussels, to the new Chophouse steak menu, to vegetarian choices like the funghi pizza with truffle oil and sautéed leeks, Glo has options for everyone without compromising spice, freshness and flavour. The menu highlights all kinds of island-grown produce, and feature dishes change to match what’s in season. Local suppliers include the family-owned Seven Seas Seafood, Choux Choux Charcuterie, and JC Herbs from up-island. “We use island or local products as much as we can,” says Chef Ryan. “Even if it costs a little more, we find the quality is always better.”Read More on Storehouseglostorehouse SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Guest Writer We get many people writing guest articles for us, as well as past contributors.
