My dad's coming to Vancouver soon and would like to take me out to dinner, he asked me to choose a restaurant. Any suggestions for nice restaurants (only in Vancouver proper please) fairly expensive is okay. No Japanese or Chinese restaurants please! I may be the only person in Vancouver who doesn't love sushi, and I grew up in China anyway so I tend to prefer something different. He really likes Italian food, so I was leaning towards Lupo which I've heard is good. True? Any other suggestions? It will be a Friday night if that makes any difference.
I know this is a pretty generic question but what can I say, I'm a poor student and don't go out to dinner very often, unless it's The Naam (ugh) and I want it to be a nice meal.
