Two nights with mother: Kingyo and _______

sophie. | Aug 28, 2009 12:45 PM

Back to school, back to Van. Mom is coming to help me move in and to share a few good Vancouver meals.

She wants Kingyo the first night. My choice the second night. Except that she has it in her mind that we should go to this resto that we walked by in Gastown on our way to Salt. Apparently I sang its praises. But I had never been there. Now I feel silly because I don't recall the episode.

It may have been Six Acres or Shebeen or Greedy Pig. But she thinks the food was French. Not gastropub and such.

Any ideas? If we could identify it, that would be lovely. But then I must not be that jazzed if I don't remember the place.

Somehow I have it in my mind that the food at Six Acres or Shebeen is not worthy of my "one night with mother meal." And, because Greedy Pig serves a fair-priced lunch, I'm thinking I could wait and check it out on my own. (It does not require mother's subsidy.)

Or could it have been Water St Cafe? Opinions?

Also considering Lolita's. Yes? No?

We're not looking for Chambar price points. Something reasonable. Anywhere in the city.
Just someplace really good. Thanks!
