Blue Water Cafe’s “Unsung Heroes” Enters 11th Year
– Unique Seafood Festival One of Vancouver’s Most Anticipated Events –

Vancouver, B.C. (January 27th, 2015) – Blue Water Cafe’s executive chef Frank Pabst is in the process of crafting the menu for his annual sustainable seafood festival – aptly named “Unsung Heroes” – for the 11th year. Initially created to bring awareness to local and unique seafoods, and to avoid species that are over-fished or harvested in ways that can damage ocean beds, the month long festival has seen significant growth – over 400% – since its inauguration.

Frank PabstKnown for being one of the most-anticipated events on Vancouver’s culinary calendar, Pabst remarks, “The popularity of the event has increased tremendously and these formerly ‘unsung’ species are now heroes in their own right – they have truly entered the mainstream of the public’s consciousness.”

Blue Water Cafe is best known for championing British Columbia’s sustainable seafood movement and is a founding member of the Vancouver Aquarium’s “Ocean Wise” conservation program. The restaurant strives to educate guests on seafood sustainability while providing an exceptional dining experience. Every year, Blue Water Cafe donates 10% of the proceeds from Unsung Heroes to the Ocean Wise program.

Chef Pabst’s impressive Unsung Heroes menu has included dishes such as red sea urchin trifle, stir-fried jellyfish and poached periwinkles in prior years. Always aggressively raising the bar, guests can expect new flavours in 2015.

Unsung Heroes commences Monday, February 2nd and ends on Saturday, February 28th, 2015. For further information or reservations, please contact Blue Water Cafe by telephone at 604 688 8078 or online at
