I'm an NYC hound who'll be in town on business--it's my first time in Vancouver and I'm hoping to have a great food experience in your fine city. We get in Friday night and will be tired. Want someplace downtown that's good, relatively fast (no fine dining) and still open at 9pm. I was thinking of Peaceful Restaurant for the beef roll, spicy eggplant, and various noodles.
Saturday lunch needs to be very close to the convention center so I was thinking Bali Thai. Saturday night I have a reservation at Boneta.
Any suggestions for brunch or lunch on Sunday? Downtown preferred. Sunday dinner I'm looking for a great Chinese place--preferably somewhere with good king crab options (assuming that'll still be in season in early April). Dinner does not have to be downtown. Thoughts?
Monday I'll be tied to the convention center during the day again but free to explore at night. Suggestions? Another gastown favorite like L'Abattoir? Or something different?
Any and all suggestions and critiques will be much appreciated.
