Big Lous 6This year, why not brighten up your work lunches or holiday parties with Big Lou’s new catering platters? We’ve got a range of options from gourmet to relaxed, that will take the stress out of the planning process.

The platters include everything from a French-style platter with pâté, rillettes, and other decidedly Gallic treats to Charcuterie Platters and even a Smoked Seafood Platter with a wide range of fresh bounty slow-cooked to perfection.

Big Lou’s Butcher Shop isn’t just famous for meat, we’re also pretty well-known for our range of deli-style sandwiches. We understand that some of you can’t make it over to Railtown as often as you’d like so we’re proud to now be working with Betty at The Burrard to bring our sandwich magic to the West End.

Betty at The Burrard is a stylish sort of place and off-the-shelf just wouldn’t fit, so we’ve created three new sandwiches exclusively for Betty. The Godfather and the Big Lou’s Roast Beef on Panini and a Mediterranean Vegetable sandwich on Ciabatta.

All the sandwiches are made fresh daily at Big Lou’s and delivered to the Betty where they’re warmed to perfection on their Panini press. Along with our sandwiches, visitors to Betty at the Burrard can enjoy treats from other great local suppliers like Earnest Ice Cream and To Die For along with delicious coffees crafted by their award-winning Barista team.

Betty at The Burrard is located at 102-1100 Burrrard St., off the lobby of the  retrolicious Burrard Hotel and is open 7 days a week from 6am-10pm. You can find them online at www.theburrard.com. Big Lou’s Butcher Shop is open 7 days a week and also offers a wide range of sandwich, charcuterie and meat catering options.
