We'll be visiting lovely Vancouver in July and are looking for restaurant recommendations near our Yaletown rental condo. We are Boston foodies and love all kinds of cuisines, particularly Chinese, Japanese (sushi), Italian, Mediterranean, Thai, dim sum, tapas, etc. We are looking for:
1) family-friendly restaurants where a 9-month old would not be a problem
2) special occasion restaurant for a 12 wedding anniversary--any thoughts on Blue Water Cafe for this occasion?
3) Places we shouldn't miss, including outside of Yaletown? Chinese or Vietnamese in Richmond?
