Another new chapter

It’s last call at Impostori!

Over the past few weeks and months some circumstances have arisen in my life that have given me cause for thought and reflection. After some consideration, I’ve decided to accept an offer I received for Impostori.

After 40 years of standing in kitchens, 28 years of ownership at 9 restaurants, and innumerable stints as Chef, it’s time for me to step out from behind the stoves, explore some different avenues and pursue some different goals. Over the years I’ve been privileged to have met some wonderful people through my restaurants, and to have made some lifelong friendships; I value the relationships built with my guests, staff, purveyors and peers above all. Now it’s time for me to write a new chapter, and I hope to contribute to the dynamic, ever evolving hospitality sector in Vancouver in a different way.

Our last night of regular service at Impostori will be Saturday June 8, with a festive prezzo fisso Sunday lunch offered on June 9.

So, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has helped make all my ventures and adventures possible over the decades—all my staff, my friends in the wine business, all the chefs who’ve come through my kitchens, those in the media who have supported me, my fellow chefs and restauranteurs who have inspired and instructed me, my friends and family who have lived this journey with me, and especially all my guests who have supported me so well for so long. I hope you’ve all enjoyed me as much as I’ve enjoyed all of you.

Thanks everyone, and I look forward to seeing you all before last call!

Chef Andrey Durbach
