3 Days from Toronto - Vancouver Itinerary - comments please!
Thanks for your feedback on my other thread. (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/973995
I'm trying to nail down a few meals (since I can, as many places use Open Table). We arrive on a Tuesday afternoon and leave on Friday morning.
Here's what I'm thinking, please provide feedback as required!
Tues Aug 5
arrive, check in, get in line for Vij's
cocktails at West after Vij's
Wed Aug 6
Lunch: Hawksworth (1pm reservation)
Dinner - snack/drink crawl: (some of these will just be for drinks)
Pidgin (8pm reservation)
Thurs Aug 7
Lunch ?? --> somewhere in Granville Public Market, or sushi at Miko?
Dinner: Farmer's Apprentice
I'm omitting many of the recommendations, so I'm happy to adjust our plans. If there are better places for sit-down lunches than Hawksworth, we are game, or if there are other places we should add to the snack crawl, let us know.
You might want to consider cocktails at West BEFORE Vij's depending what time you're lining up (West opens at 5:30). A good option while waiting for your table.
There really aren't any memorable restaurants on Granville Island where the market is. If sushi at Miko is an option, that would be my choice for sure but it is a schlep from the island.
The places you've picked for your snack crawl don't seem to be open till 5 or 6 so might be hard to get to more than one or two before Pidgin, though Notturno and Alibi are fairly close by. Unless the food has improved vastly of late, I'd pass on snacks at Alibi. Go for the beer!
