Vancouver & Whistler

Looking for some guidance for good eating suggestions for upcoming September holiday. I've been a few times and have some favorites:
RainCity Grill
Araxi - in Whistler
(Bishop's just was not as sharp as it had been several years ago.)

I really enjoy restaurants that rely on seasonal, local ingredients.
Any recommendations from Vancouver chowhounds? (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
Also any good food shops/cookware stores?
Bakeries? Unique places?

  1. When I was in Van last I found a fabulous cookware store, I can't remember the name, but it was on the very far west side of China town on the north side of the street. Not your typical China town merchandise. Walking down the street looking in the store fronts you will know which store I am talking about. It is much nicer and well presented relative to the rest of the stores, but a visit to China town is also a good thing to do.

    For a unique place, you have to try the chinese night market under the bridge in Richmond, worth the short commute.

    1. it's on east pender and its called ming wo its a great store with some really great prices

      1. Try the Gourmet Warehouse at 1340 East Hastings. One of the best cookware shops around. Gadgets, food stuff, etc. Its like going to a museum.
