Slick­ity Jim’s Chat and Choux

Vancouver Magazine - - Taste - Stacey McLach­lan

1387 W 7th Ave. skin­ny­fat­jack.com We’re not sure why Main Street’s eter­nally busy Slick­ity Jim’s Chat and Chew de­cided to open its homony­mously named sec­ond lo­ca­tion (It’s French! It’s too clever!) on the un­re­mark­able cor­ner of Hem­lock and 7th, but the cozy, eclec­tic space—decked out with vin­tage chan­de­liers and charm­ingly tacky boat paint­ings—eas­ily cap­tures the orig­i­nal’s ap­peal and draws a steady stream of lo­cals off the Granville– Broad­way cor­ri­dor. Join them to brunch hard with corn­flake­crusted honey but­ter French toast or a cast-iron pan piled with ten­der braised ribs, fresh chimichurri and sunny-side-up eggs.—
