Popular with foodies and the neighborhood crowd alike, this "casual fine dining" establishment not far from Kits Beach is best known for its appreciation of flavor. Locally revered for its buttermilk fried chicken, Refuel serves high-concept Northwest cuisine in a lively but laid-back environment. The ever-revolving menu stresses local ingredients—along with its signature fried chicken, the restaurant's artisanal salumis inspire loads of repeat business. Refuel's dry cured chorizo, coppa, fennel pollen salami, and 18-month dry-aged ham are all handmade by the restaurant's co-owner, Chef Robert Beltram. Refuel's Spot Prawn Boil held in late spring has become a can't-miss Vancouver event.
