Fishworks is a seafood restaurant that utilizes the bounty of fresh seafood from our unique and celebrated West Coast. Timeless classics are featured as well as contemporary, modern cuisine. Fishworks, located in a heritage building just up the hill from North Vancouver's revitalized waterfront, is alive with bustling energy. It has become an environment which is both warm and welcoming with vaulted ceilings and careful attention to detail. The design along with the simple, yet elegant decor creates an atmosphere which is second to none.
Chef Shallaw's cuisine is truly "Westcoast" in its style in that it combines influences from all over the world with the freshest of local produce available to us. Some of his best examples include his Sablefish marinated in Sake-kasu and his Haida Gwaii Halibut specials (when in season, only) sauced with an Indian Raita, or a south-western salsa.
Shallaw began his career right here on the North Shore. Through his passion and dedication to his craft, he worked his way up the ranks of our neighborhood kitchens until he opened his first restaurant at the age of 23. Five years later, after honing his restauranteurship at the helm of his bistro in Edgemont Village, Shallaw has focused his efforts on elevating the Lower Lonsdale dining scene with his critically acclaimed Fishworks.
In addition to providing impeccable cuisine, the owner and staff of this intimate North Vancouver eatery have chosen to focus on supporting environmentally sustainable practices. Working with the Vancouver Aquarium's Oceanwise program Shallaw is very proud to present an entirely sustainable menu. He hopes that with his menu and commitment to environmental responsibility he can not only tantalize the palates of Vancouver but also educate its dining patrons.
