Hi There! I'm coming with 4 additional guys from New York to Vancouver (all for the first time) for 4 days for a bachelor party. All of us are New Yorkers in our early 30's and prtetty houndish -- the bachelor in particular will describe his bachelor party experience in terms of the meals he had.
...So I'd appreciate any suggestions you might have for either of the following (I'd say type of cuisine is less important that vibe & quality):
1) a bachelor party restaurant: the sort of restaurant that feels festive, special and laid back enough to support a bunch of guys kicking off a night in a neighborhood that also has some fun bars to explore... a place that appeals to a bunch of dudes in some way, without being cheesy about it. i was given blue water cafe in yaletown as a suggestion
2) any place where the food experience itself is uniquely vancouver that we can do during the day?
Thank you guys!
