Announcement: Unveiling New and Exciting Earls Concept at Grosvenor Ambleside

"We’re unchaining the chain restaurant."- Mo Jessa, President of Earls

Earls Restaurants Ltd., alongside the Grosvenor Group, are pleased to announce an exciting new restaurant concept coming to the highly anticipated mixed-use development in West Vancouver’s Ambleside.

Opening in late 2017, the new restaurant concept will be the first of its kind in Canada, offering guests a reinvented dining experience in a new style of restaurant from the people who invented “upscale casual dining”.  Says  Earls  CEO  Stan  Fuller, “It’s  everything  you  know  and  love  about Earls, but nothing you would expect”.

Mo Jessa, President of Earls, had this to say about the new concept, "It's been in design for over 3 years and we are thrilled to unveil it at Grosvenor Ambleside. Moving forward, you can expect to see the future of Earls as less of a chain and more of a collective of individually compelling restaurants influenced, in part by our history and our experience, in part by inspired collaborations, but more by its location, market and purpose.”

The yet unnamed restaurant will open with fresh inspiration, designed for the market we see using the restaurant, and unique to West Vancouver from design, to spatial use, to the menu. Says Jessa, “We are unchaining the chain restaurant”…

The restaurant’s local ties, commitment to conscious sourcing & sustainability, as well as stylish design & architecture fit perfectly with the community-driven retail vision that Grosvenor is committed to delivering in their Ambleside development.

The Canadian-owned Earls (owned and operated by the Fuller family) is one of North America’s most successful independent restaurant groups, with 66 locations across the US and Canada, our most recent opening in Chicago.

About the process

Grosvenor held a series of Ideas Fairs about Grosvenor Ambleside, hearing from hundreds  of  West  Vancouver  residents  and  businesses  about what  they  wanted  to  see  on  the  1.9  acre  site located  adjacent to the waterfront on  the  1300  block  of  Marine  Drive.  The  community’s  input  helped  inform  the  retail  vision  for  the redevelopment of the gateway site, which is to provide a  mix of quality retailers and amenities to match the unique lifestyle of West Vancouver. Earls and the Fuller family are thrilled to be a part of that.
