OUR STORY

Proprietor Emad Yacoub is no stranger to the kitchen. He spent the early years of his career honing his craft as Executive Chef in several celebrated Toronto restaurants. Later, he was the driving force behind the re-invigoration of Vancouver’s Joe Fortes. It was at Fortes that Emad met his future wife, Shannon, who was managing that restaurant’s busy dining room at the time, while Emad worked away as Executive Chef in the high-volume kitchen.

After spending several years in B.C.’s restaurant industry, Emad and Shannon decided it was time to make their own move – to realize their own vision of what a restaurant could be. Toronto’s Solo on Yonge St. and Brownstone Bistro were their first successes. Emad’s culinary mastery and Shannon’s vast experience with public relations and management led them to rave reviews in Toronto’s restaurant scene.

...it was time to make their own move – to realize their own vision of what a restaurant could be.

But their true destiny was on the West Coast. When they returned to Vancouver in 2002, they opened their first restaurant, glowbal grill & satay bar. They wanted to create a gathering place for friends and family, with worldly cuisine spun from the freshest West Coast ingredients. But what they created was a sensation, and the start of one of the biggest success stories in the Vancouver restaurant world. The rest is history.
