OLO Restaurant - Times Colonist


Acclaimed downtown restaurant has new name, menu

New vowels, new hours and a new approach have hit the foot of Fisgard Street in Chinatown as five-year-old Ulla restaurant has transformed into Olo.

The 40-seat, fine-dining restaurant has been re-imagined as a slightly more casual spot and intends to be more open, available and approachable, according to chef and owner Brad Holmes. “Five years is a long time in the restaurant industry and we wanted to make a change to attract more of our friends,” said Holmes, who has partnered with Kris Barnholden in the new venture. “I just really wanted a change, so why not.”
