Botanist x Alo Collaboration

May 16th, 2023

This is the chef collaboration you’ll be telling your friends about all year!

Botanist, already one of Vancouver’s favourite places for refined West Coast dining, welcomes the team from Toronto’s Michelin-starred Alo for a feast of elegant flavours and culinary creativity.

Alo’s Chef-Owner Patrick Kriss is one of the most highly lauded chefs in Canada; he brings with him Corporate Chef Matthew Betsch and Bar Manager Keegan Dolan from Alobar. They will join Botanist Chef Hector Laguna, who sources the brightest, freshest ingredients from farm, field and forest for his flavourful fare, as well as the multi-award-winning cocktail team led by Grant Sceney and Jeff Savage. Expect a truly unforgettable experience.

This special dinner experience will be available for two evenings on May 31 and June 1 for Visa Infinite members. Learn more and secure your seats now!

If cocktails are more your style, join us on Friday, June 2 from 5:30pm – late at Botanist Bar, where we will host a pop up cocktail collaboration with Alobar. Bar Manager Keegan Dolan along with our own Grant Sceney and Jeff Savage will be serving up a specially curated cocktail menu, showcasing the best that both bars have to offer. Stop by for dinner or a drink, and catch these mixologists at work – no reservations necessary!
