C|Prime Modern Italian Steak & Wine

Vancouver, BC – Vancouver’s culinary scene is abuzz with news of C|Prime’s New Executive Chef, Bruce Woods. While C|Prime has quietly been delighting hungry, intrepid diners with its upscale Italian yet home-style offerings since late May, announcing new Executive Bruce Woods marks the moment C|Prime is on the map.

Bruce brings to C|Prime experience apprenticing in authentic cucinas in Italy and many years perfecting his craft in some of Canada’s most prestigious restaurants. Diners familiar with Toronto mainstays Centro, Modus and Harbour Sixty Steakhouse have reason to celebrate.

“C|Prime is an entirely new direction for the former Beyond Restaurant space,” says General Manager Sergio Cocchia. “We are filling a niche for steak lovers in the city giving them a high-end dining experience at a reasonable price point in the heart of downtown Vancouver. We look forward to sharing authentic meals from our hands and hearts, while providing an environment for diners to relax, socialize and enjoy.”

Reflected in its carefully crafted menu, C|Prime puts a premium on locally sourced and curated ingredients. Using the finest cuts of BC-raised meats, fresh seafood, vegetables and cheeses paired with innovative, rich sauces and salts, the restaurant offers incomparable dishes that showcase both Italian and New York inspired flavours. In addition to its lovingly crafted dishes, C|Prime boasts an award winning wine program that is housed in a one-of-a-kind cellar built directly into the restaurant.

“At the heart of this restaurant is homemade, meticulously crafted food,” says Chef Bruce Woods. “We make everything in house and spend countless hours ensuring the ingredients we use in the restaurant are of superior quality.” Woods continues, “it is a thrill to be at the helm of such an establishment and it feels great to be back in Vancouver.”

C|Prime features 2500 square feet of dining space, with room to accommodate 250 guests and parties both big and small. C|Prime is located at 1015 Burrard Street and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
