Near the Fairmount Hotel Vancouver

I'm looking for restaurants and take-outs that are not too expensive for well-made, healthy lunch and dinner options. Salads, fish, veggies, etc. Also wouldn't mind a few addresses for wine stores selling good Oregon and Washington state products. Thanks!

  1. You are right downtown so the choices abound. Cafe Artigiano comes to mind for healthy sandwiches and the like. There are quite a few decent sushi spots all around there. Head down to Robson St just around the corner.

    Marquis Wine and Liberty have OK selections of Oregon and Washington wines.

    Edit: I just noticed I posted the wrong location for Liberty...I can't edit to correct.

    Marquis Wine Merchants
    1034 Davie St, Vancouver, BC V6E, CA

    Liberty Wine Merchants

      1. Why Oregon nad Washington Wine?? You're in Vancouver try some BC wine....

        Sutton Place Wine Merchants has a decent selection, they don't have a working website up yet...

          I can get BC wine out here in Quebec, but the Oregon and Washington stuff is harded to procure.

          Any recommendations where they have a really great BC wine list for a nice dinner? Might have a night out with some other wine aficionados

            Aurora Bistro on Main St has an EXCLUSIVELY BC WIne list and the food is awesome :)

        2. We went to the Sutton Place Wine Merchant and was perfect for all that you are looking for..
          tons of places on Robson and the Fairmount is central to everything and right next door to my fav, caffe artigiano for the best latte in the world..
          We loved going to Gerard's bar at the Sutton Place Hotel every night with the mahogany paneled bar with the overstuffed chairs and fireplaces..great food and drink..huge celebrity hangout.

          1. I think Okada sushi is an easy walk. Delicious, and not too expensive. Second Caffe Artigiano for coffee, etc, though I wasn't big on their breakfast wraps.

              Re Artiggiano, we've had really good luck with their sandwiches and soups. Maybe a bit more expensive than your average panini, but worth it IMO. And of course the coffee is well yummy.
