The formerly cavernous Vancouver Urban Winery has been rebranded as the Settlement Building and carved up into a number of duchies — including the recently launched Postmark Brewing — but its anchor is Belgard Kitchen, set up smack in the middle of it all. The ceilings still soar, but it now feels infinitely more welcoming and alive than it did in its past incarnation as the world's biggest tasting room. The kitchen is in the hands of ex-Earls director of culinary development Reuben Major, who has created a tight menu of share plates that are in sync with the dining area's relaxed vibe.
