My husband and I arrive in Vancouver on Saturday, and will be there for four nights. I'd greatly appreciate your help with our schedule.
SATURDAY EVENING - - Sushi. We would like really fresh fish. Traditional sushi is preferred to more modern dishes. We'd prefer not to spend a ton of money (around $100 for two before booze). Octopus's Garden and Lime both sound nice. If you have a preference or a different recommendation, they'd be appreciated. I figure we'll be hungry super-early (we'll be on Chicago time and will have gotten up super-early to catch our 8am flight) and so won't make a reservation, hoping to have no problem getting two seats at 6pm. If you think we need a res on a Saturday for these sushi spots, please advise.
SUNDAY - - Breakfast at Medina, lunch at Japadog, and an Izakaya crawl for dinner.
MONDAY - - Breakfast in hotel (have restaurant credit), lunch at Kirin downtown, and dinner at Fuel.
TUESDAY - - Granville Island (coffee at JJ Bean, lunch at Go Fish, etc.), Dinner at Vij's.
WEDNESDAY - - Sun Sui Wah for dim sum in Richmond on drive south back to Washington State.
If you think any of these options are mistakes or think we should shuffle meals to different days, your advice would be appreciated. For example, for Chinese downtown Monday, should we go somewhere else? And for Chinese in Richmond on Wednesday, are there better options? Is Fuel not the best example of high-end local cuisine?
Thanks so much in advance!
