So my wife and I will be coming to Vancouver for a memorial service for my wife's uncle. We are avid foodies and want to experience the best ingredients that Vancouver has to offer without eating too many cuisines that are well represented in NYC. For example, I know you all have spectacular Chinese and we have lately become more interested in regional Chinese but I'm not sure how Vancouver and NYC compare. I leave it to you to make your recommendations.
We are very interested in local and seasonal ingredients and we especially love fish and shellfish. If you have a place to recommend with a great raw bar and little more, we'd be more than happy. Price is not an issue for at least one of our 2-3 dinners but we'd also be interested in hearing about smaller and more affordable ethnic places that you think are worth it.
Thanks in advance for your help. We can't wait to eat in Vancouver!
