Anyone over there have any thoughts or comments about Dundarave Fish Market? Coming to Vancouver in Dec. and looking for lots of good eats - this is on my list of considerations.

  1. Also looking at:

    Ensemble French Bistro
    Kitsilano Daily Kitchen
    Pied a Terre
    The Cafeteria
    Twisted Fork Bistro

    Campagnolo for pasta lunch

    Anywhere else I should consider? Planning to take 6 other adults to La Cage Aux Folles, and wanting dinner before - would that be enough time for Twisted Fork?

    Looking forward to ideas from you Vancouver hounds.

      Twisted Fork has been shut for the past while to deal with water damage after the business next door had a fire. Not sure if they're up and running yet.

      A favourite of mine for bistro fare is La Brasserie. If you grab an early seat (no reservations -be there when they open (5 or 5:30 - can't recall), you'll find the service pretty prompt and you'll be out in time for your play (it's a bit of a hike from the Playhouse but not too much further than Twisted Fork).

      Nearer the Playhouse - how about Lupo? http://www.luporestaurant.ca/

      1. re: kinnickinnik

        Twisted Fork's site says they are open back up. Would you suggest La Brasserie or Lupo over Twisted Fork (or would you suggest that Twisted Fork would be too tight timewise since they don't open until 6?).

        La Brasserie was on my poutine list, and Lupo looks like a possibility too.

        I will need to do more research.

        1. re: Food on the brain

          Twisted Fork is really small and might be tight for a six top. I wasn't thrilled with their food but I only went for brunch not dinner. Might be a bit squeezy timewise if your show is at 7:30, doable if at 8.

          I believe Lupo has special pre-show dinners you might want to look into. Certainly much closer if the weather is inclement which it is like to be in December. We've had a couple of nice meals there though not mind blowing. There are bigger fans on this board so take a look at their comments.

          La B's breakfast poutine is over-the-top good and worth a trip but I think is only on their weekend brunch menu.

          1. re: grayelf

            Thanks for the feedback. So, where would you recommend for before theatre, great food, but not crazy prices? For 7 could get pricey, so I want best value, pre theatre, on a Monday......

            1. re: Food on the brain

              IMHO, the best value (but note it's a ~15 minute walk to the Playhouse) , is La Brasserie. Great food - I've loved everything I've ever had there (though steak frites is my usual). For your biggish group of 7, get there soon after opening time (5 pm) so you can score a table (it fills up over the first 1/2 hour though if you're going on a Monday you probably have more leeway).

              A few restaurants offer pre-theatre discount if you show them your Playhouse ticket. Of the list here, Cibo would be my pick:

              1. re: kinnickinnik

                Sounds like La Brasserie it is, unless anyone else has thoughts.

                I did look at the restaurants with the pre-theatre discounts, but IMHO, these restaurants are rarely top notch. Quality and value for $ are much more important than $ alone.

                Thanks for the thoughts all
