Downtown, Gastown, Yaletown all okay. There'll be five of us on a weekday night. Ideally looking for a pubby/comfy atmosphere where we don't have to yell that has cocktails, beer and wine as well as reasonable vittles -- so many places seem to be serving $25 mains that are lackluster.
Would the Diamond work (no website at the moment, email link forces me to use Outlook 7, no phone number, grr)? What about Pourhouse? Revel Room? Six Acres? The Refinery?
The food doesn't have to be stellar just solid, with a couple of gluten-free options. Prefer to avoid chains like Moxie's, Donnelly Group, Cactus Club et al.
All suggestions/help carefully considered and greatly appreciated!
