Miantiao: inside the new restaurant at Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver
Dished Vancouver gave you your first glimpse in March, and now Miantiao is almost ready to welcome guests through its doors for the first time.
The new Italian-Chinese restaurant, which translates to noodle in Mandarin, is the latest addition to the Kitchen Table Group and its culinary director, chef Alex Tung.
Miantiao lives inside the upscale restaurant at Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver, which was previously MARKET by Jean-Georges.
This concept will offer customers a combination of the two kitchens. The restaurant describes itself as “Italian cuisine enhanced with Chinese sensibilities and Chinese gastronomy enhanced by the elegant simplicity of Italian cuisine”.
The inspiration behind this new restaurant comes from the story of a Chinese-Italian couple living in Vancouver and proud to share their respective cultures and the cuisine they grew up with.
This elevated menu teases “culinary innovations” and a “playful and provocative approach” that already makes our ears and mouths drool.
Menu highlights include everything from the Burrata (Burrata Pugliese, XO Sauce, Scallion Pancakes, Robertis Olive Oil) to a four course aged whole duck experience that serves four to six people.
“This restaurant is all about substance, honesty and a must have product,” says Tung. “The food offerings and the menu will suit every gastronomic establishment in the country, but will feel accessible to all.”
Expect tons of fresh seafood as well as an incredible cocktail and wine program from the spirit of Gianluigi Bosco and Wine Director David Steele, respectively.
The restaurant will feature two dining rooms – the Friulian-inspired Frasca Room and the Jia Dining Room.
Miantiao will provide diners with a bar, lounge and several private dining rooms for special events.
You can find Miantiao open Thursday, June 17 at 7 p.m., after which it will be open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.
Make your reservations now and don’t forget to discover this new must-see culinary destination in Vancouver.
Address: 1115 Alberni Street (Level 3), Vancouver
