Vancouver large course tasting menus

I'll be in Vancouver again in August and we'd like to try some more restaurants. We like doing many course (9-10) tasting menus so we can try as much as possible. So far we've been to Lumiere, West, Gastropod, and Metro. Fuel is the only one I really have on my list so if anyone has some suggestions that would be awesome.

  1. Fuel is a great choice...I say stick with that for this trip.

      Seconded! Fuel is an excellent spot.

    2. Fuel is an outstanding restaurant. Go there.

      I would also recommend Blue Water and Cioppino's... both in the same category/price range as Lumiere/West.

      Both Gastropod and Metro are no longer with us.

      1. Agreed about Fuel.

        On a different note, how about a multi-course omakase or kaiseki dinner at a Japanese restaurant? Notable ones include Yoshi's, Octopus Garden, Lime, Tojo's...

        1. C has nice tasting menus as well.

            Also Diva at the Met - the new home of Chef Jeff Van Geest (formerly of the late, lamented Aurora). Six courses for $65 (plus $42 for the wine pairs).

            (NB They have an interesting (R&B Brewing) beer-paired Father's Day (June 21) menu for $89. )

              RIP Aurora

              I actually attended an R&B Brewing dinner @ Aurora -- it was terrific. My wife & I fell in love with Sun Gold that night.

                    a warm day on a nice patio quaffing a sun god, doesn't get much better

          2. I heard La Quercia does an awesome menu, and quite reasonably, too.
