Vancouver For The Weekend

passionfoodie Nov 15, 2007 09:53 AM

Hey there......

I will be in Vancouver for the weekend and I'm lookin for the "can not miss" places. Regardless if it fine dining restaurant, a funky heighborhood place or a counter at a diner I'd love to hear about it. Price is not an issue and I will be eating out for all my meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) each day so let me know what you got!!! Thanks!

    Check out Salt. It is in Blood Alley in the Gaslight area. Great atmosphere, and really nice pairings of artisin charcuterie and cheese with all the trimmings. Nice wine list also.

      yes, Salt is great...one of the best executed places i've been to anywhere...

      in the same area i also like Chill Winston for brunch or cocktails...and Boneta, right nearby too, is my fav restaurant in Vancouver...

      Chambar is another fav...

      Raincity Grill - on English Bay, even nice when it's raining
      Gastropod - on 4th - Yummy food nad the best bar stools ever!
      Second vote for Salt
      Any of the Guu's - Japanese Izakaya places, there are 3 of them.

        I second Guu... but I would choose the Thurlow and Robson or Robson near Denman branches... I was somewhat underwhelmed when I went to the one in gastown.

        Absolutely love WEST. The tasting menu was one of the top 10 meals I've had.

          Seconding that emotion. If budget is truly not an issue, then you absolutely must go West. Arguably one of the best overall dining experiences in North America regardless of price (and it's not astronomical like some places).
