Coming soon to Olympic Village is Ophelia, a new restaurant offering authentic Mexican cuisine with a refined, elevated approach.
The team behind Ophelia also own The Flying Pig and WildTale. Helming the kitchen at Ophelia will be former WildTale executive chef Francisco Higareda. In fact, the restaurant is named after Higareda’s mother.
Ophelia will be taking over the space currently occupied by WildTale’s Olympic Village location at 165 West 2nd Avenue.
Ophelia’s menu will feature crowd-pleasing favourites like tacos and chilaquiles alongside traditional Latin American dishes such as pulpo en mole (octopus topped with rich mole sauce), bone marrow sopes (thick corn tortillas) and aguachile (shrimp marinated in fresh lime juice and chilli peppers).
Ophelia will also offer a fully licensed bar serving handcrafted cocktails made with premium tequilas and mezcals, along with local and imported craft beers, and New- and Old-World wines.
Further details about Ophelia will be released in the coming months.
