One of our favorite restaurants in the city. Unpretentious awesome experience, reminiscent of a Toronto or New York style meal. Amazing rolling menu on the chalkboard from the creative culinary geniuses Chef Sean Reeve and Eddie Lee. They always have new tantalizing creations to taste up their sleeves. Try the Chicken of the Sea.... MY FAVE!! It keeps me coming back for sure!

Another one of our favorite restaurants. This place is a Vancouver establishment! Unpretentiously pretentious, if that even exists. Chef Lee Cooper and Chef Yoann Therer are dynamite in their execution. Its a play on French with the West Coast fusion... a gourmet meal, every time.

Sightseeing

Vancouver's version of New York's Central Park. I have tons of memories of Stanley Park as a kid. From the Aquarium, to the water park, to the holiday trains (Christmas, Hallowe'en, Easter, etc.), and even the totem poles. You need to check this place out.

Beautiful and very well maintained traditional Japanese style garden. If you time it, you can even witness a traditional tea ceremony. Located at the far end of Vancouver West Side, its a good 30 minute drive, but well worth the trip if you are an aspiring greenthumb.
