1079 Mainland Street – Yaletown, 604.336.1088
Distance: 10-minute walk
Price: Small plates ~ $20, Large plates ~ $25 – $49
Bringing a California vibe to Yaletown, Dovetail is all about relaxed, effortlessly cool food that combines international flavours with local ingredients. Most plates are designed to be shared, and arrive before 6 pm to take advantage of “Martini Hour”.

1228 Hamilton Street– Yaletown, 604.609.0080
Distance: 10-minute walk
Price: Hot mains ~ $19 – $38, oysters ~ M.P.
This is THE place to get a great selection of West Coast oysters, especially if you visit during “low tide” hours (from 4 – 6 pm Mon – Thurs, 2 – 6 pm Fri  -Sun) when they’re $2.95 a piece. Lively atmosphere and good wine selection. A second location is over in Gastown.

1809 West 1st Avenue – Kitsilano, 778.379.4052
Distance: 25-minute walk, 5-minute drive
Price: Tasting menu ~ $148 (no a la carte)
One of just nine restaurants with a Michelin star in the city, AnnaLena is a small space with an upscale feel, and some of the best “modern Canadian” food in the city.

1505 West 1st Avenue – Kitsilano/Granville Island, 604.730.5040
No Website
Distance: 25-minute walk, 10-minute drive
Price: Fish and chips ~ $15 – 30
Proving that some of Vancouver’s best seafood doesn’t have to be too expensive, Go Fish is a little wharf-side shack offering excellent fish and chips. Hours in winter can be a bit inconsistent so call ahead.

2702 Main Street – Mount Pleasant, 604.879.0077
Distance: 15-minute drive
Price: Five-course set menu – $150 (no a la carte)
Known for refined, organic small plates in the evening, Burdock’s Michelin-starred set menu is creative and full of foraged, wild and natural ingredients. Vegetarians will love it as much as meat lovers.
