Vancouver's high-profile Glowbal restaurant group is polishing another feather in its local cap. The company is officially opening the doors to Riley's Fish & Steak, a new "chophouse" concept in a prime downtown location.
Riley's has moved in at 200 Burrard St, in the Waterfront Building space previously occupied by Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar. Rogue closed up what had been the mini-chain's third Vancouver location in the fall of 2021, with Glowbal signing on not too long after.
French-born Jérôme Soubeyrand, who previously served as Executive Chef at Glowbal's Coast and Executive Sous at its Black & Blue restaurant, is leading the culinary crew at Riley's in the Executive Chef post.
The menu makes the most of Riley's slogan, "West Coast Prime," by honing in on a variety of steak options with sides, as well as seafood like an epic chilled seafood tower. The restaurant also boasts an oyster-shucking station and a full bar, pouring cocktails, B.C. craft beers, and wines from B.C. and further afield by the glass or bottle.
The 240-seat restaurant also features a private dining "enclave" for events, with its own entrance, and a 100-seat "garden patio."
Open daily for dinner (lunch and weekend brunch will be added soon), Riley's first day is Monday, May 9.
Glowbal operates several Metro Vancouver restaurants, including the flagship Glowbal, Black & Blue, and Coast in downtown, as well as multiple locations of its Trattoria brand, and Five Sails at the iconic Canada Place.
