Chris van der Linden is an old hand at opening restaurants, but Old School Eatery in Revelstoke is the first one he’s actually owned. The eatery, located in the 100-year-old former Mountain View School, will offer casual dining with sophisticated comfort food. Breakfasts and lunches will feature generous portions of rustic-style food, while dinner will tend more toward fine dining. “If we wow them with breakfast, they’ll be back for lunch and dinner,” said van der Linden. There have been some delays in renovating the heritage building, but van der Linden hopes to open the 55-seat eatery in late November.
