I will be honeymooning in Victoria/Vancouver/Seattle the last week in June. Three nights in Victoria, three nights in Vancouver and the final night in Seattle (Flying into and out of Seattle.) We both love seafood and are hoping to make that the main theme of our trip food wise. We are coming from Texas and have good access to high quality beef regularly so are not really looking for steakhouses and we are not drinkers so no need to use wine availability in any recommendations. We will have a car and don’t mind travelling for a great meal. Hoping you can lend your expertise to our plans.
While in Victoria, we will be staying at a B&B so will mainly be interested in three dinners (We are planning on an afternoon snack at Red Fish, Blue Fish.) We already have reservation for one night at Sooke Harbor House. For the other two nights we are looking at Amuse Bistro and Bakery, Harbor House, Camilles, Lure, Blue Crab and Pescatores Seafood and Grill.
While in Vancouver, we will be staying at the Four Seasons. We are thinking one night Italian (Provence Marina-side, La Buca, Lupo, Il Giardino, Cioppinos Mediterranean Grill, Il Terrazo or Via Veneto), one night French (Les Faux Bourgeois, Chambar or Le Crocodile) and one night Chinese (Kirin, The Jade, Sun Sui Wah or Shanghai Chinese Bistro and we would love to combine this dinner with a trip to the night market.) We are hoping to do Bard on the Beach one night so would like to combine with dinner. While we hope to eat local seafood throughout our trip I have also heard good things about these specifically seafood restaurants in Vancouver (West, Rodneys Oyster House, Five Sails, Fish House Stanley park, Joe Fortes, Salmon House on the hill.)
I don’t really have too much idea about breakfasts while in Vancouver (We would love to get fresh Croissants or pastries with good coffee) or lunch (not burgers or pizza) so would appreciate some help with these recommendations. I have read that when we go to Granville Island we should have lunch at The Lobsterman.)
Finally, our final night in Seattle we have reservations at The Georgian at The Fairmont Hotel and plan to spend the little time we have shopping and noshing at Pikes Market.
Thanks for any ideas.
