Quick dinner before winefest?

We are going to the Playhouse Winefest on the saturday night. Got any ideas for a quick early dinner? We are staying at the Marriott on Hastings and prob walking to Canada Place.

  1. well I gotta say it's tough in that area but:
    Lion's Pub - Good pub food
    There are a couple Japanese places down Water St (W cordova turns into Water) - Guu

    Transcontinental Steamworks (right next to Steamworks)

    There's just not much there, and I speak as someone who has to eat quickly between the afternoon part and the evening part on Thursday and Friday!

      Metro is pretty good, and very close to Canada Place. Herons at the Fairmont Waterfront is nice too, although I'm not sure it meets your requirement of "quick".

        I've noticed Metro has been under renovations for at least a month - odd for the high season. Anyone know what's going on?
