So normally before I travel, I spend hours and hours combing Chowhound for restaurant recommendations and have a whole itinerary planned out. Unfortunately I have been swamped with work and have been doing a lot of travel and haven't had time to plan appropriately for an upcoming trip to Vancouver. I'm going next week for a conference, and it's the first time I've been to Vancouver. I'm staying at the Fairmont and attending a conference at the Convention Center. I haven't had time to research ANYTHING, including what I might do with the limited free time I have when I'm there, but was hoping I could get recommendations for restaurants that would be relatively convenient. I have no dietary restrictions and will eat anything, though some people who may be joining me for some of the meals aren't particularly adventurous. I don't think I'm going to rent a car. Any help would be appreciated.
