On Our Radar: Glowbal Grill Makes it Official

A new home is in the works for Glowbal Group’s flagship location, marking the end of an era for one of Yaletown’s most iconic spots. The restaurant that defined dining in the city and became more than just a regular fixture is officially closing its doors and moving to another location

Glowbal Grill Steaks & Satay is the flagship location of the Glowbal Group’s collection of favoured restaurants, and has been a neighborhood staple since 2002. 

And while owners Emad Yacoub and Shannon Bosa-Yacoub announced this week that they will be closing the restaurant’s doors on January 1st, 2015, we say fear not.

The hot spot will find a sparkling new – and expanded – home in the TELUS Garden development next year.

The Glowbal Group knows how to stir up a buzz, (just ask anyone who’s attended one of their fantastically packed openings) and they’ve teased just a bit of information to get us talking. We know the new spot will be much bigger, and with the blank canvas of a brand new, highly anticipated development, we expect a lavish design as well. The Glowbal Group team is staying tight-lipped on the specific details for now but we plan to share more the second we find out.

For a big finale on the original spot, details will soon be released about the New Year’s Eve bash when Glowbal will say goodbye, but especially eager partiers can email for an early shot at tickets.

In the meantime, diners are encouraged to make a pilgrimage to Glowbal’s original home to relive the memories of patio brunches, satay platters, and cocktail-fueled conversations. And prizes will be doled out weekly for pictures shared with #GlowbalGrillMoments. 

It might be the end of an era, but change can be a good thing. Especially when it brings a Glowbal TELUS Garden opening party with it.
