A couple of days in Vancouver
I will be in town for a workshop and am staying at the Century Plaza Hotel. I will be alone and am looking for some great eating. I particularly love seafood. What can you recommend? I don't mind whether it's a nice restaurant or a hole in the wall.. just looking for some really good food.
You are right downtown and you have access to some very good Japanese and Korean food....noteably the izakaya along Robson St. You are also close to the JapaDog cart if that interests you.
For non-Japanese seafood - the closest place is probably Joe Fortes on Thurlow at Robson St. For great seafood - Blue Water in Yaletwon.

I suggest creating a picnic lunch - buy fruit at one of the stalls, salumi at Oyama, bread at Terra, etc...then go outside to the adjacent park and then snack. There are a few restuarants there - a number with excellent views as well. I do like the burgers at Market Grill (right in the public market) - probably the one place I can actually recommend.
I'd take a look at Green Lettuce on Kingsway & Victoria... Say hi to Lucinda for me... They are a great Desi Style (Indian) Chinese Food place... Fast, Good and Cheap... The holy triumvirate of restaurants....
