Richmond Non-Asian

Visitors tomorrow from out of town who aren't wild about Asian foods so wondering what other places in Richmond people would recommend? They are staying at the Fairmont Airport but we can drive wherever. Italian, bistro, seafood, Greek, etc all fine.

    If you are driving, I'd suggest popping into Vancouver proper. Perhaps La Buca? It would only be a 15-20 minute drive barring any major traffic delays.

      If you have to stay in Richmond, I have been hearing good things about a couple of places in Steveston Village:

      Gudrun (which is similar in style to Salt Tasting Room): http://gudrun.ca/

      Steveston Pizza. http://www.stevestonpizza.com/

        Steveston Pizza's excellent, but I don't think they're a sit down restaurant - it's take-out/delivery.

        I haven't been to Gudrun yet but have heard good things. Locals find it a tad expensive for Steveston and feel it better suits the Yaletown/Crosstown vibe. However make of that comment what you will.

        I've always had excellent meals at Tapenade in Steveston:

        Globe@YVR restaurant at the Fairmont Airport is also very good:

        For casual cuisine, the Blue Canoe offers good chow on the Steveston Landing waterfront: http://www.bluecanoerestaurant.com/

        Otherwise, you're no further from downtown Vancouver than Steveston at the Fairmont Airport. I don't think you have to stick to Richmond.

          Ah - I did not know that about Steveston Pizza. I read a review where I assumed the reviewer ate in.

        I'd suggest being a good friend and opening their eyes to the absolute deliciousness of asian food, especially in Richmond. Chinese, Taiwanese, Korean, Japanese... all SOO good.
