Marking their 25th anniversary, Gateway Casinos & Entertainment announced that it will bring about a spectacular renovation at Grand Villa Casino Burnaby, popularly known as Grand Villa. The renovated structure will give a new look to the gaming floor, refresh the public spaces, and of course, the Delta Hotels Burnaby Conference Centre. New dining options will also be added to it, including Villa Bistro, Atlas Steak + Fish, and Chow Lucky Noodle Bar. Thanks to the project, 75 new jobs will come up in the company and around $15 Million will be invested in the local economy.
CEO of Gateway, Tony Santo, said that the renovation will enhance the gaming experience for the customers in the Delta Hotels Burnaby and Grand Villa.
Chow, the newest restaurant brand of Gateway, is set to dish out fresh new recipes inspired by the Far East. One of the most striking features is the seating arrangement on the side of the counter, and watch the chefs out together lovely dishes. Patrons can also use their own imagination and create their own signature dishes. Chow will serve all-new flavors that focus on freshness.
Atlas is a modern twist on the good ol’ North American steakhouse. Inspired by the success of Atlas at Cascades Casino Kamloops and Grand Villa Casino Edmonton, the restaurant focuses on selecting the finest of ingredients, experimenting with global flavors while showcasing unique as well as tried and tested cooking techniques. Add to it, the engaging table-side service that takes the whole dining experience to an all new level all together.
