A Vancouver-based chain of restaurants is expanding into Burnaby. Glowbal Restaurant Group will open its 10th property—Trattoria (4501 Kingsway, Burnaby)—on Thursday (March 12).
This is the third Trattoria location for Glowbal. The casual Italian eatery first launched in Kitilano in 2008. Last year, a second location opened at Park Royal in West Vancouver.
The new Burnaby location is part of the Sovereign tower, a 45-storey luxury development by Bosa Properties. The building includes over 200 condominiums as well as retail space at the intersection of Kingsway and Willingdon Avenue.
“This is our first restaurant located in a building that has a hotel, residential units and retail space,” Emad Yacoub, owner of Glowbal Restaurant Group, stated in a news release. “The City of Burnaby is growing so fast and we’re looking forward to being a part of it.”
Trattoria will feature 200 seats across 6,000 square feet of dining-room space. A WoodStone pizza oven will be the centrepiece of a 30-seat circular bar. A private dining space and heated outdoor patio are also included.
The menu at Trattoria includes Italian-inspired salads and appetizers, over a dozen different pasta dishes, and a selection of handmade pizzas. The Burnaby restaurant will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to midnight.
Glowbal Restaurant Group also operates Coast, Italian Kitchen, Society, Black + Blue, and the Fish Shack. In 2014, the company announced the closure of its original restaurant, Glowbal Grill, in Yaletown with plans to reopen at TELUS Garden.
