Fresh daily proponent Brian Fowke says it’s time to move on from his cherished Kitsilano Daily Kitchen, which will now become AnnaLena …

This from today’s mail:
“I have just put my chef’s knife down for the last time at Kitsilano Daily Kitchen. With a tear in my eye I must say I have lived some of the best years of my life in this kitchen – because of all of you who believed in this quirky little restaurant that opened five years ago with no sign or menu…I am very sad it is over, but I am happy with everything we accomplished; a great restaurant run by the passion of a great team – 14,000 menu ideas later I have completed what I set out to do. I believe we have all made Vancouver a better restaurant city and culture with our passion to explore everything local, sustainable and organic. We have all done a great job!.

It is time for my good friend Mikey Robbins to take over the room and run with his passion. Its going to be a great ride for him – he knows his food and is at the top of his game. “

Again, thank you everyone for the past five years, you have all been so good to me – I have enjoyed every minute on the stoves at Kitsilano Daily Kitchen.

Chef Brian Fowke
