STRAIGHT FROM DeHART
Date: March 16/2016
The Xchange Tapas Bar and Lunch has opened at 200 - 1615 Dixon Road in Landmark 6. Owned by Mark van Hees, Joe Schlachter, Cliff Harvey and Jay Blackford, The Xchange is going to be the place to be at lunch or after work from 4:00 p.m. and later. Sharing plates (true tapas style) rotating craft beers on tap, wine, sangria, unique cocktails and a lounge feeling is exactly what goes hand in hand. The design concept by Christine DeLong of Begrand Fast Design Inc. is unique and the atmosphere is fun and lively, with a large bar in the center of the restaurant that surrounds the kitchen and a private mezzanine. The design takes advantage of the existing architecture utilizing a combination of refined industrial and casual contemporary furnishings and accessories. The name Xchange comes from the concept of exchanging ideas and conversation with food, so the idea is to encourage people to socialize and share. Chef Graydon Gliege has put together distinctive tapas items for $7, $8 and $9, along with mix and mingle and socialize and share items and entrees. Some of the items we tried were ricotta cheese gnocchi, fried polenta and mushrooms, smoked bacon cassoulet, beet and goat cheese salad, truffle cheese fondue, mussels and papas fritas. All were exceptional and not the usual run of mill tapas items. Extra underground lite parking is available cross from the restaurant. Xchange is co-managed by Dustin Morris and Megan Fox. Open Monday to Friday lunch 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Monday to Saturday dinner/tapas 4:00 p.m. till late. Call 250-469-9690 www.xchangekelowna.com
