Dine Out: The Brackendale eatery that won't break the bank
Old favourites and new beginnings prompted the launch of this new Brackendale restaurant in the former Red Bench Diner space on Government Road. The wallet-friendly menu was designed to put a healthy spin on traditional meals with a focus on organic, locally-sourced ingredients that can be further enhanced by the restaurant's new selection of hard-to-find BC wines.
