In my opinion, Trevor Bird is doing it all right. He cooks seasonally. He’s growing stuff on the roof. He’s starting an apiary. He gets in whole animals and butchers them, employing a real nose-to-tail, no waste philosophy.
But all of that wouldn’t really mean anything if his food sucked. Thank goodness it doesn’t.
Fable is a small space, brunch here is a friendly affair. The servers are all pretty laid-back, and your neighbours will likely be sitting close enough to ask you what it is that you’re having. There is also pretty much always a line, so you never know what new friends you’ll make waiting to get in the door.
The last Sunday of every month is Boozy Brunch, and it’s a party. I mean, how can it not be? “Booze” and “Brunch” are the two best words to go together since… “peanut butter” and “jelly.” In this particular case, Boozy Brunch equals half price mimosas (made with orange or grapefruit juice) and Caesars. You really can’t go wrong.
1944 W 4th in Kitsilano
Open for Brunch Saturday/Sunday 10:30 am to 2 pm.
