The Heights Merchants Association in Burnaby has launched its neighbourhood dining showcase, Crave, from August 16 to 30. Crave celebrates the Heights’ diverse food options with two weeks of new food specials, set menus, and happy hour discounts.
Crave Burnaby Heights
Where: Hastings from Boundary to Gamma in Burnaby
Crave kicks off today with performances by local artists Chloe Farrell and Stephen Scaccia between MacDonald and Madison Avenue. For more free nights of live music in the Heights, be on the lookout for buskers performing outside your favourite merchants throughout Crave, including Juno award-winning jazz musician Gabriel Hasselbach.
Crave specials are available whenever you’re yearning for food from your favourite Heights merchants. Pick up an award-winning pork belly bao for lunch at The Grey Olive, grab a specialty coffee and crostata from Caffe Divano as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, or celebrate happy hour with a drink and a selection of appetizers at Chad Thai.
Plan your next date night dinner, or special meal out with your family during Crave. Choose from a southern barbeque special at Butcher’s Block, authentic three-course meals from Cristos Greek Taverna and La Villetta, or five new tasting plates in The Pear Tree Restaurant’s lounge. Save room for dessert with a selection of petits fours from Chez Christophe, or celebrate happy hour all day long with cocktail inspired sundaes at Glenburn Soda Fountain and Confectionery.
