Vancouver Date Restaurant?
Hey all. Coming to town next week and would like to find a nice restaurant to take a date. Any recommendations? Prefer a nice restaurant, quiet atmosphere with $20-ish entrees. I prefer local, fresh ingredients and thoughtful (not necessarily fussy) preparations.
Vita Bella in Burnaby is a nice choice. Good food, reasonably priced and pretty romantic. I've been there several times now and the food is good. Occasionally you may get a slow server but all in all it's pretty good. The chef is the owner and he does all the cooking himself. The mussels and smoke duck is really good.

Pair Bistro is an excellent neighbourhood restaurant in Kitsilano. Expertly prepared local organic food is served by a friendly, professional staff in a cozy, comfortably chic, bustling, yet quietly subdued room. Highly recommended.
I just had an awesome lunch at Market at the Shangri-la. Fantastic deal - two courses and dessert for $28. Make a reservation because the word is out, and it was packed! The food is first rate, some of the best I've ever had. I seem to think their dinner entrees are in the $20 range. Extremely reasonable for the caliber of food. Fun hotel to browse through, then go next door to Urban Fare market to gawk at all the awesome food they carry.
