Stumbled upon Chill Winston for lunch on Sunday and it seemed like a cool little venue, the food was good, and the fries were amazing. No really, they were amazingly good. But if we mentioned the dreaded words "Chill Winston" to any other server or local in Vancouver, we got the eyebrow-raised, "Oh really? You liked it?"
Is it just a case of a trying-too-hard-to-be-hip restaurant in a part of town with some GREAT restaurants or is there a story here that the non-locals are missing out on? The servers were friendly and the food was good for lunch when we went (and as I said.. the fries were amazing), so I'm wondering where all of the scorn is coming from.
