FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                             

January 8, 2013




North Vancouver, BC… Great new things for the New Year often start at home, and Chef Scott Kidd is starting 2013 with a brand new endeavour in his very own neighbourhood of Edgemont Village. Kidd will open Canyon in the former Edgemont Village Bistro by mid-January, just in time for Dine Out Vancouver. North and West Vancouverites need not worry about bridges to try something new, it’s right in your backyard. Canyon is located at 3135 Edgemont Blvd., North Vancouver. Reservations can be made by calling 604-987-8812.


Canyon is the essence of Scott Kidd; his journey through culinary life and a partnership with his wife Helen Sheridan.  A passion for food, love, respect and a healthy dose of light hearted fun, Canyon is described by Kidd as a neighbourhood joint; bistro style with casual elegance and always a sense of humour. The cuisine focuses on local products of course, some old style favourites (can you say Sunday night fondue?), Kidd’s legendary use of bits otherwise known as offal and of course, new items inspired by his new location. Stay tuned for a sample a menu and opening date.
