Hi -- I'm an LA Chowhound who will be in Vancouver for several days in early October; I'll be at the Westin Bayshore with no car. I'm female and will be by myself for the most part. I have no problem eating solo and like all kinds of food. Except liver. Bleah.
Some restaurants aren't particularly welcoming to the solo diner and some are great. I love sushi and would like to find the best sushi place in Vancouver for one night; also love Chinese and would welcome any suggestions in that area. Asian/French fusion is another favorite and who wouldn't like a steak one of those nights? I like a nice wine list. Price isn't really an issue, though if it's gonna be out of the park it has to be great.
If you know of any restaurants that are gay friendly, that would be a plus.
Thanks in advance!
