Cabana Bar And Grille Wins Silver
In 29th Annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards


Kelowna, BC. Cabana Bar and Grille was awarded second place in the Best Okanagan Restaurant category in the prestigious Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards yesterday. Just shy of its first year in business, Cabana Grille proves to be a key player in this growing culinary destination.

"We are absolutely thrilled!" says co-owner and operating partner Jay Blackford. "Vancouver's food media and restaurant industry professionals are an important and influential group. Recognition at this level means a lot to Cabana and our staff, customers, suppliers and local producers."

Cabana Grille opened its doors in June 2008 to a bustling summer crowd - with a full patio, lounge and dining room that together seat 300 guests. With a mandate of "globally-inspired and locally created" Cabana Grille presents both sophisticated flavours and family-friendly fare that are healthy, fresh and focused on the incredible array and quality of local ingredients available nearby.
"We are proud to bring the best of the Okanagan's fresh ingredients to Kelowna's locals and visitors," says Executive Chef and co-owner Ned Bell. "The Okanagan is a vibrant region with many opportunities to support talented and passionate culinary businesses from Osoyoos to Vernon that combine to create unparalleled dining experiences for our customers. From farmers to winemakers to producers of artisanal products there is so much to celebrate and we thank Vancouver Magazine for recognizing our efforts."
