Hello to all CHers! This is my first official post, but I've been a regular lurker for the past little while. I've been drawn out of the sidelines on this occasion because I need some fresh restaurant recommendations for a special occasion.
My boyfriend's 21st birthday is coming up and I'd like to take him out for a nice dinner. I'm quite familiar with the restaurant scene in the metro Vancouver area, and, like I've mentioned, in my creeping of the boards I know which restaurants come up often as popular picks. In this case, my main criterion is that the restaurant is a little more upscale (casual fine dining) while not being such that two young people would not feel out of place.
I've entertained the thought of Trafalger's Bistro - any thoughts? Food-wise, I'm not looking for any type of cuisine in particular. Ultimately, I'm looking for great food and an unpretentious atmosphere. All input would be greatly appreciated.
