I have a week in said hotel. I will need some wine, bread, olives, cheese and pate etc for evening snacks. Anywhere nearby that carries this kind of stuff? Also any local brew pubs nearby? TIA

  1. This local Richmond blog (coming to an end in just a few days) is a treasure trove of all things food & restaurant-related in Richmond:

    (I put in "deli" as search term):

    Good luck.

    1. There is an Asian market called T&T right in the same complex. You may find the staples you mention. Your selection widens immensely if you include Asian snacks. The closest western grocery store is the Superstore just a bit south on No 3 Rd.

      For wine, there is a somewhat overpriced liquor store at Lansdowne Mall one train stop away. Local brewpubs - hmm can't think of any off hand. Take a train into town (Vancouver) and you will find options.

        There's a good Irish brewpub 1.4km south of Radisson, on Westminster Hwy, west of #3 Road:

        7331 Westminster Hwy

          Is it actually a "brewpub"? I don't recall that they brewed their own beer.

          The only brewpub that I know about in Richmond is this one http://www.365daysofdining.com/2012/0...
          which is waaaay out in the sticks.

            Guess not.

            If the OP comes back to this thread, Vancouver Craft Beer Week is wrapping up in Richmond this Friday & Saturday @ River Rock Casino:

      2. For your wine, there is a "signature" BC Liquor Store, a 15 minute (< 1 mile) walk due south of your hotel. at Ackroyd Road & No. 3 Road. (or take the train south one stop to Lansdowne).
        At the same corner, you will find a PriceSmart Foods supermarket, with a deli and some steam-table hot foods, as well as a reasonable selection of western and Asian groceries. Not what I would call top notch, but palatable.

        1. An option for beer, if you have some time, is HogShack in Steveston Village. You can travel by transit; train to Brighouse station, then bus 401 No. 1 Road to the historic fishing fillage. HogShack has a selection of craft beers on tap, and in bottles, and serves our version of southern bbq.The Italian market, and the specialty food/butcher shops in the same neighbourhood will carry the snacks from your list.

            My $0.25 - The Hog Shack was a huge disappointment, and they may have been better when first opened but the quality has not sustained. And service is quite non-chalant.

          2. Thanks all I am watching the thread. I will be hitting RR for the brew fest for sure
