Burdock & Co seeks inspiration from British Columbia’s tangle of islands and coastlines, sourcing ingredients from local growers, farmers and foragers and presenting them in a fluid culinary experience.
In May 2013, Andrea Carlson opened her cozy neighbourhood eatery at the East End of bohemian Main Street. Her farm-to-table philosophy intrigued and enchanted diners, and the restaurant soon earned a reputation as a pioneer of naturalist food and drink. Now, Burdock & Co is recognized citywide as a welcoming haven that encourages patrons to slow down, connect and linger over a shared meal.
Since opening its doors, the restaurant has collected a number of impressive accolades. Most recently, Burdock & Co has been recognized in 2018 Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants, among the top 22 restaurants in B.C. The restaurant also won the Gold award for “Best Brunch” and “Best West Coast” at the 2018 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards, and recognized in the “Best East Van” category. For two consecutive years, Burdock & Co has also received the Platinum award for Wine Program Excellence at the Vancouver International Wine Festival.
