Nov/Dec Print Preview: Meat & Bread

From the Editor:

The next issue of EAT will soon be hitting the shelves of your favourite cafes, coffee shops grocery stores and local shops. The new issue should be out first week of November, so look out! For now, appease your appetite with this preview of Jonathan Johnson’s piece on Meat & Bread.

Opening just last week in the historical Churchill building on the 700 Block of Yates Street is Meat & Bread — an extremely popular downtown Vancouver sandwich shop. With a simple menu consisting of two everyday sandwich options (Porchetta, Jerk Chicken), a daily special, and a weekly vegetarian option, Meat & Bread, is all about doing something well-known, and doing it really well. Local meats and ingredients (including bread from one of my recent faves, Crust) are lovingly prepared, crafted, and tended to by the talented team, while local Island beer, cider, and wine is available by the bottle or by the glass. While the limited menu might seem reductive, don’t let it deter you — daily specials are conjured up and prepared days in advance by the talented Meat & Bread bunch. The Churchill has been lovingly restored and designed by well-known Vancouver designer Craig Stanghetta. I had the Jerk Chicken ($8), and it was a true gem. 

For a complete look at Meat & Bread, check out the print article coming soon in our November/December issue. For now, here’s a sneak peak in pictures of the whole Meat & Bread experience.
