Granville Island is about to get a new dining destination: Alimentaria Mexicana is slated to open in the former Edible Canada space this June.
The new concept is brought to us by Mexican-Canadian Chef Ernesto Gomez (Chancho Tortilleria, Nuba, Fayuca) and promises to offer patrons an authentic taste of Mexican via dine-in, takeout, and retail options once it opens its doors.
Alimentaria will also boast an educational space, as this project aims to inform customers and support local and international artisans and suppliers.
The new destination will also feature a tortilleria and a licensed patio.
“Behind every chile, kernel of corn and native grain we source from Mexico are stories with thousands of years of heritage, genetics and biodiversity attached to them,“ says Gomez.
“These are stories of hardworking farmers that planted the crops, tended and harvested them with care and are now able to reap the rewards and improve the lives of the people who live and work in those communities.“
We’ll keep you posted on details and an opening date for this one, stay tuned.
