My husband and I will be in Vancouver for a week with our friends and know NOTHING about the food scene there. We are serious foodies (albeit not snooty ones... we enjoy the French Laundry and our beloved Quince in SF but we bestow as much admiration on a great San Francisco hole in the wall taco)
Anyhow....we do need help here.
I am currently in New Orleans (eating!!!!), the holidays will be right on us when we return home and I have NO time to research my options. I am relying on the wisdom of my fellow chowhounds.
I want a couple of REALLY GREAT, OVER THE TOP, SPECIAL OCCASION restaurants, a few GREAT but I don't want to get THAT dressed up places, and a few ethnic or local good eats.
If familiar with San Francisco, we'd say, Gary Danko or Michael Mina for cat 1, Boulevard and Quince for cat 2, and Slanted Door and Taylors refresher for Cat 3.
We'll be there Jan 3rd and need to make reservations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
