VANCOUVER, BC (April 17, 2018) — It was a banner night for both Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar and Chef Alex Chen yesterday when the downtown destination captured big wins in the Best Seafood and Best Upscale categories, while Chen was appointed Chef of the Year at the 2018 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards.

Cementing its influential role in Vancouver’s culinary landscape, Boulevard unseated long-standing winners in both the Best Upscale and Best Seafood categories at the 29th annual edition of the Awards.

“This year it’s the second act of Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar, Alex Chen’s temple to all things seafood in the Sutton Place Hotel, that the judges felt had found its groove four years after opening,” stated the magazine in its May 2018 awards issue. “ 'The combo of (Alex Chen and Roger Ma) may be the best in town’, noted one judge.”

Chen, who now adds Vancouver magazine’s ‘Chef of the Year’ title to his list of impressive accolades, led Team Canada to a top-10 finish at the 2013 edition of the prestigious Bocuse d’Or in Lyon, France, and won the 2015 and ’17 editions of the Gold Medal Plates BC regional culinary competitions as well as the 2018 Canadian Culinary Championships.

“Our judges lauded ‘the absolutely Herculean effort’ Chen has put forward since opening Boulevard … to move a very traditional hotel kitchen forward into fresh, exciting cooking that remains grounded in unyielding rigour, classical French technique and respect for history’,” stated the magazine. “He ‘effortlessly brings Asian sensibility, lightness and nuance to his menu in a subtle yet clear-eyed way that doesn’t feel foreign or intrusive’.”

In accepting his award on stage before a standing-room-only of BC’s culinary who’s who, Chen stated: “I dedicate this award not only to my family but to our back- and front-of-house staff both past and present and the various vendors we work with,” said Chen. “Without them I wouldn’t have the same motivation or desire to mentor and we couldn’t do what we do on a day-to-day basis. I am incredibly grateful for this recognition, but it is, as always, a team effort and I share this with the entire team at Boulevard.”

The Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards are judged by a panel of leading culinary experts and critics and handed out at a formal award show at the Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver. A full list of winners from the 2018 edition of the annual awards is available at www.vanmag.com.

April 16, 2018 – Vancouver, BC – Nothing says BC like White Spot! The BC born-and-raised restaurant chain is boldly laying claim to the official title of BC’s Own – reflecting a long-time commitment to supporting communities, farmers and suppliers across the province, from Vancouver Island to Northern BC, and just about every place in between. White Spot buys more locally-sourced ingredients than any other full-service chain restaurant in BC, another way White Spot is BC’s Own restaurant.

From playful, eye-catching billboards to stories about all the ways White Spot touches the lives of British Columbians, the restaurant’s biggest campaign to-date features real staff and guests, and connects with people of all ages. A 60-second, day-in-the-life of White Spot video can be viewed here, or downloaded here.

“At White Spot, we want everyone to feel at home,” says White Spot President Warren Erhart. “That includes long-time guests, and the thousands of people who come to our province every year. Our heritage is something that’s very much unique to White Spot. Since we opened in 1928, we’ve been making real connections with the people of BC, one Legendary burger at a time.”

“As the times change, so do we,” adds Cathy Tostenson, Vice President of Marketing & Menu Development. “We’re constantly reinventing our restaurant to stay exciting, modern, fresh and relevant, while staying true to our roots.

White Spot’s deep community ties inspired the tagline BC’s Own and set the tone for the campaign, which involved local creative agency One Twenty Three West and local media agency DSA Media.

“If you grew up in BC, you probably have fond memories of White Spot,” says Rob Sweetman, Founder and Executive Creative Director of White Spot’s agency of record, One Twenty Three West. “We wanted to remind people of why they fell in love with the brand in the first place, while welcoming newcomers. If you’re in BC, this is a place you have to visit.”

The campaign will appear on a wide range of media, including TV, radio, outdoor, digital, mobile and social to reach the diverse audiences around our province.

A new, distinctly West Coast menu design entertains guests with stories about White Spot’s unique BC history, and proudly features classic burger favourites and new dishes that respond to requests for more vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. White Spot even has a burger named after our province, the BC Burger!

Did you know?

White Spot serves more than 30,000 guests every day. That’s over 12 million people a year!
