New Year's Eve options in Vancouver?

Contemplating a NYE trip to Vancouver (from Seattle). Train up, stay at the Westin Grand (probably). Looking for good dining options on NYE, which is usually a challenge...
We won't have a car, so the restaurant should be walkable or easily cab-able. We'd be fine dressing up but don't want a "canned" event, if that makes sense. The ideal spot would be a great neighborhood restaurant, medium-sized, with Chowhound-worthy food and staff, a full bar, and no set menu (I realize that may be impossible on NYE).
I've only been to Vancouver twice before. I remember drinks at Delilah's...and had a great 10pm dinner at a restaurant Delilah's directed us to (I seem to remember them saying it was in the old Delilah's location? It was a quiet residential street, walkable from D's). I think we'd be happy with most types of food, except something very rich/heavy (such as traditional French).
Your ideas would be most welcome. Also, if you happen to know any non-clubby places to get a drink or watch fireworks after dinner, I'd love to hear those as well! Of course we might just opt to take champagne back to the room, if we can swing getting a room with a view...
