Hub restaurant now open in New Westminster

A piece of Yaletown opened in New Westminster on Monday.

The Hub restaurant, which has operated in Yaletown since 2009 and a second location on Denman Street in Vancouver's West End since last summer, launched its 5,000-square-foot location on the second level of the Shops at Westminster Station.

The Hub features West Coast comfort food like blackened salmon, crab mac & cheese, an array of burgers including a sushi burger, as well as sandwiches and salads. On weekends, there's also a brunch menu.

"The West Coast is so diverse that comfort food can mean a rice bowl to somebody or seafood to somebody else," said co-owner Jennifer Marsh.

To wash those meals down, 16 locally crafted beers are on tap, as well as a variety of wines from around the Pacific Northwest. Big screen TVs around the restaurant are tuned into theĀ  big games of the night. Local graffiti artists Kaid Ashton and Kaput contributed to the urban vibe decor.

By summer the restaurant is also expected to have a large patio looking out towards the Fraser River.
