Dining in Vancouver

Vancouver_BC_Downtown_Skyline-cover

Vancouver may not  be the sunniest, cheapest, most fashionable, or cultured city.. but one thing Vancouver is, is one of the best dining cities you will ever visit. It may not be obvious I know… but take it from me (who lived there in the miserable rain for 3 years ) it has a great dining scene!

The hospitality industry is the “industry ” there. Forgot actors, directors, writers, and producers.. if you are a server, a host, a bartender, or a chef – you are in the “Industry.” This is the reason the food scene is of such a high quality. The restaurant industry is full of passionate people who are looking to make a career out of your dining experience.

I hadn’t visited Vancouver for the past few years, so I was very out of the loop when it came to knowing where the newest and greatest places to try were. I got a handful of suggestions and did my best customer research to pick out the dining itinerary for the trip.

Here are the highlights:
