Longtime German favorite Gustav’s is under new ownership. And the owners are familiar faces to those in Vancouver’s foodie community: Genaro Zurita Amaro and Jesus Amaro, owners of Amaro’s Table and Cecilia.

The men took ownership of Gustav’s, at 1705 S.E. 164th Ave., on July 1.

Since then, the men and their team have made strides to make everything on the now-condensed menu in-house, starting with the strudel.
