Where to have dinner near pne on Friday?

Got tickets to the 3rd Eagles concert on Friday and now need to find a place to eat dinner.

The tickets were $$$, so I looking to keep dinner between $50.00 and 100.00 for two.

We will eat most anything. I would prefer to not have to move the car and walk between the restaurant and the show, if possible.

We are staying with family near Knight and Kingsway, and woudl also like a suggestion of a place we could take them for breakfast or brunch Sat am.

Thanks in advance for suggestions.

    It's a bit thin right near the PNE....there is a sushi place called Blowfish at Renfrew and Hastings - that might be your best bet. There are a number of mediocre Chinese Restaurants nearby. On Renfrew (a bit of a hike) is a mediocre Portugese place called Senhor Rooster.

    Kingsway and Knight - I have not had it, but the breakfast menu at Green Lemongrass looks interesting (it is a central-Vietnamese (Hue) restaurant.)

      If you're willing to hike the distance to Senhor Rooster, about the same distance going west along Hastings (@Nanaimo) will take you to Seri Malaysia.

        Or park near Seri, eat there, then hike to the PNE...it's not that far really.

            Get the deep fried shrimps -- mmm. I'm not sure why I didn't mention them specifically in this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7018... which will give you an idea of what's on offer. There is a link at the end to another report from one of the Malaysians who attended...

          For that price, I suggest something quick and casual.

          Tom & Jerry's (Hastings @ Kaslo)

          Le Petit Saigon (opposite side of street from Tom & Jerry's)

          Louis Garden (Hastings @ Slocan, in corner plaza)
