Hi Vancouver ‘hounds!
2 hounds from NYC are heading your way for our Memorial Day weekend (last weekend of May, i.e. in 10 days). One night in Whistler, where we will likely be eating Italian at one of Umberto Menghi’s restaurants, Il Caminetto or Trattoria. Then back to Vancouver for 3 dinners and 3 lunches. Here’s an outline of a plan – please add/subtract and give me any thoughts or cautions. We love seafood and asian food of all kinds, are not afraid of dives, and also love cocktails!
Saturday dinner: Vij’s, with drinks while we wait at West.
Sunday dim sum – Lin's? Long's Noodle House? Will I be really upset if I don’t trek out to Richmond? (no car, hotel right downtown)
Sunday dinner – izakaya crawl – we are good walkers. Can you please recommend specialties/don’t miss items at the following?
Monday lunch – maybe Go Fish? Maybe Fuel/Refuel?
Monday dinner – fancy seafood dinner for a birthday, maybe at Coast? What about Blue Water?
Tuesday early lunch or brunch (2 pm flight) - haven’t seen a lot on brunch – what about Slickety Jim’s?
Other places we might try to swap in/add on: Salt, the Bins, Bao Bei/the Keefer, Café Artigiano, Japadog.
Thank you so much!
