There’s more to Ja­son Pri­est­ley’s CV than Bev­erly Hills 90210. He’s also ap­peared in a Brit­ney Spears video, raced a Lo­tus Esprit in the very first Gum­ball 3000 rally and was cast as Jack in the re­cent pro­duc­tion of David Mamet’s Race at our very own Bluma Ap­pel The­atre. That’s when you would have seen the BC-born thesp at this lum­ber­jack lo­ca­vo­rium lay­ing waste to chef Robert Bra­gag­nolo’s $57 seven- course tast­ing menu. He’s re­ported to have been par­tic­u­larly im­pressed with the first two cour­ses, a ball of herbed chèvre made to look like a tomato, and a tor­tilla cone filled with gua­camole, tequila and tuna ce­viche. Sun­day, Tues­day and Wed­nes­day 5 to 11 pm, Thurs­day to Satur­day 5 pm to 1 am; bar tlll close. Closed Mon­day, hol­i­days. Reser­va­tions ac­cepted. Li­censed. Ac­cess: seven steps at door, wash­rooms on same floor.
