Fine Dining Lunch

Well, it's that time again, and I get to pick a place of my choice for my Xmas lunch with my reps...I already booked "Fuel", but I have to admit, the reviews are under-whelming me!!!

We can go anywhere in Vancouver, but I would have to decide pretty quick as I already booked!

Last year we did Parkside for their Xmas lunch special...we've done Joe Fortes lots before, Hy's, the Cannery, Cin Cin, etc...

Any great place that's open for lunch you can think of or do you think Fuel is fine?

Hey! I just saw Cioppinos is open for lunch for the month of December! I just emailed to ask for a menu...now that will be where I will switch to if I can! Here's hoping...!

    Cioppino's is a great choice....good luck.

    Gastropod, West, Blue Water will open for lunch over most of the holidays till Christmas, as well. I can't confirm, but Chambar may be doing this also.

      Cioppino's is only taking group bookings thru December :-(

        How about Yew at the Four Seasons? Their menu looks awesome.

      I booked Connor Butler. They do "lunch" on Fridays and that's when we were going! I'm looking forward to it!

        anyone have any opinions on why a supposedly very good resto like Connor Butler gets so incredibly little mention ( in the media and even just on this board)

          I wonder that too vandan! That's why I chose to go! I admit, I am really picky...and food is so hard to review because it's all "subjective"...

            It's odd alright. Maybe they are deliberately trying to be under the radar. The Pear Tree (Scott Jaeger's restaurant) has the same kind of coverage.

              i agree with you fmed, but with the pear tree i think location might be somewhat a reason whereas cb is quite central
