Coming up from Seattle in October: mind reviewing my food itinerary?

Hi folks,

We’re Seattleites celebrating my bday/our anniversary in Vancouver this upcoming late October. I’m planning ahead a. because I have not visited BC since a “spring break” trip in college and b. my work schedule ramps up in a couple weeks and I won’t have the time to pore over menus.

We plan to walk/cab when needed and are staying at the Hyatt Regency downtown. Only touristy/excursion thing we’re planning on is the Capilano Suspension Bridge. (Looks like the shuttle doesn’t run after 9/30. Any idea what that bike ride might be like from downtown?)

Ideally, we’d like one nice meal on Saturday night and the rest, we’re fine with delicious & cheap eats- please let me know what we might be missing!

Rough plan...

Friday dinner: Grab some Japanese on a walk back from Stanley Park: Kingyo, Gyoza King or Hapa Izakaya? Or would one of the Guus be better?

Sat. Breakfast: Joe’s Grill or Rosie’s on Robson?

Sat. Lunch: Food at the Bridge looks like a miss; any rec’s for some takeout or sandwiches that we could bring with us?

Sat. Dinner: Fancy meal: Le Crocodile or Boneta? Boneta seems more our style but I’m a sucker for authentic French (spent a year in Toulouse).

Post Dinner bar: Chill Winston? Other Gastown spots?

Sunday breakfast: Walk to Granville Island: Bagels at Siegels? (Currently living in the Seattle bagel vacuum.) Other snacks we should grab for the Bolt Bus ride home?

Sunday late lunch: Would be good to stick near Pacific Central station. Kirin on 12th? Sadly Bao Bei is only open for dinner and looks like it would've been perfect.

Also, I’m bummed to miss the Chinese Night Market - any Fall attractions that should be on our list?

Thanks so much!
