Chef Rob Feenie leaves his Vancouver restaurants
Celebrated Vancouver chef Rob Feenie has parted ways with his two Vancouver restaurants. No longer will the 2005 Iron Chef America be in the kitchens of Lumiere and Feenie's.
I've dined at both restos, enjoying the more casual atmosphere and less fussy food at Feenie's than the somewhat pretentious Lumiere.
Feenie became the poster boy for food in British Columbia. His face was plastered on Vancouver city buses, he appeared in White Spot TV commercials and also hosted the TV show New Classics With Chef Rob Feenie.
He's also the author of three cookbooks: Rob Feenie Cooks at Lumiere, Lumiere Light and Feenie's.
