1 day/night: food/drink crawl DT…where would you go? gas town? robson?

Hi all,

my husband and I will be in vancouver for one day/night only in early june (Thursday).We would like to try to incorporate as much of the food scene as we can in a short period of time, by doing a little crawl where we usually split an app/entree and have a drink (craft cocktails, interesting beers or wines) at each establishment (sitting at the bar). Typically we're able to hit about 4 or 5 places depending how early we start. We are mid-thirties, staying on Richards street, a block from the waterfront metro. We will not have a car. We are very adventurous and will eat/drink anything!

Based upon what i've read, i'm thinking perhaps gas town? places that keep coming up are (Meat & bread, L'Abattoir, The Diamond, Wildebeest, The alibi). On the other hand, I see a lot popping up for Robson particularly the izakayas (Hapa, Guu).

So if you had one night to drink/eat your way through…where would you go? and what would be that one "must try"?

For lunch, i'd love XLB. I think richmond is too far to travel, any great places close by where we are?

Thanks in advance!
