The Union in Vancouver's Chinatown is closing after more than a decade.

A popular Chinatown restaurant known for its brunches, drinks and approachable pan-Asian dishes is shutting down.

Opening in January of 2012, the Union has been serving up noodle bowls, eggs benedict, and Chinese-inspired scrambles, among other dishes to hungry locals.

On Oct. 18 the company behind the Union, the Cascade Group, announced online it would be permanently shutting its doors after Oct. 23.

"We have had an amazing 11 years in Chinatown," they write. "But it is time to make room for someone new at 219 Union Street."

In the announcement, they also thanked their front-of-house staff, kitchen crew and customers.

"We've been very fortunate to work with an incredible team in our kitchen, lead throughout by chef Lisa Henderson," they write. "Her incredible way of making delicious southeast Asian 'street food' taste extraordinary has made the union what it is."

The Cascade Group's other two locations, El Camino's at 3250 Main St. and The Cascade Room at 2616 Main St., will be remaining open, they note.
