Delilah's, a Vancouver mainstay for a quarter of a century, was recently reconceived by husband-and-wife team Marc Thuet and Biana Zorich, creators of the CityTV reality series Conviction Kitchen. The second season of the series, which features 12 ex-cons recovering from dark pasts and rebuilding their lives by working the kitchen and front of house at Delilah's, is currently being filmed at the eatery through August 6. Under the guidance of highly lauded Chef Thuet, the kitchen's ex-cons execute his newly conceived menu of sophisticated gastropub fare as the serving staff of recently freed foodies ferry the inventive eats to your table under the watchful eyes of professional documentarians. Peruse the menu and summon their assistance in starting a supper with an order of the rabbit poutine ($9), or saddle your stomach up for a taste of the tender horsemeat tartare ($18). Entrees at the eatery include a locally raised pork chop ($32), served with a plum-and-rhubarb compote; the Convict bison burger ($19), with braised pork belly, choron sauce, and an optional four-ounce addition of seared foie gras (an extra $12); and the Nass River sockeye salmon ($28), with a chorizo ragout and gnocchi.
