Retired NHL legend Kirk McLean couldn’t save himself in the kitchen. He told me so himself. But this doesn’t mean he’s a stranger to good food. In fact, he’s got excellent taste. His new favorite spot: the upstairs, wooden-beamed bar of his classy new restaurant, McLean’s (see below).
Located at 322 Water Street, a stone’s throw away from The Old Spaghetti Factory, travelers now have a hope of stumbling upon quality food when (puzzlingly) sent to Gastown in search of the dated tourist trap.
One of Kirk’s favorite McLean’s menu items is juicy Free Range Chicken Breast, which I agreed was one of the best selections from his menu (created by Chef Eddie Szasz) featuring Pacific Northwest cuisine.
