Mint Tea is now offering its bistro service until 9:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, starting Jan. 23 and 24, at 2014 Main Street in Vancouver.
Owners Jenna and Abdul say: The dinner menu, like lunch, will be based on local, organic and seasonal foods, but with a stronger focus on the flavors of Morocco. The fixed price menu will include a soup or salad, entree, tea and light dessert. Entree selections will include meat, fish, poultry and vegan options as well as some gluten-free meals. Prices will range from $12 to $17.
Soon, they will be adding wine and beer, but for now you can bring your own bottle of wine. New chef Ashley Miller arrived at the shop in January from the Ahwahnee Hotel, a four-star restaurant in Yosemite National Park.
I, for one, am eating it up.
PS: Look for the locavore-themed edition of North Bank everywhere on Feb. 20.
