Wanted to get your input on places to eat. We are coming in from San Francisco to Vancouver for 8 days in the middle of October. I've looked around and see that places that are around the hotel are not getting consistent reviews, thus would like to get some input. We will be staying at Renaissance Hotel in downtown Vancouver, and so far there are no plans on renting a car, unless we really have to. We are looking for a kid-friendly places, especially for breakfast, as kids are really early to rise, and I'm sure that hotel food will not make them too happy. As far as type of food goes, they are not really picky, wife and I do enjoy seafood, especially sushi a lot ( (I hear Miku is a place to go). I would also appreciate a couple of fancy places around the area where we are staying, so I can take few local people to a business dinner, and show them that I know good places around Vancouver too :)
I would also appreciate some suggestions on where to go for sight-seeing/tourist type of activities, to show kids what Vancouver has to offer, two boys 8 and 5. I do have some concerns over weather, so if someone could chime-in in regards to temperature during the time when we will be there, that would be great.
Thank you all for your time and help in advance.
