obsessing over C vs. Lumiere and other stuff

Dear Canada Chowhounds--As our trip to Vancouver approaches, there seem to be so many great eating opportunities that I'm getting a little obsessed with choosing well. Based on your wonderful suggestions, I've made reservations at both Lumiere and C. The problem is that my husband in particular feels like we should spend most of our time trying more chowish places, like all the little Asian places you've recommended. This would mean only one night for a luxurious/expensive dinner. C sounds very inventive and maybe unique to Vancouver, but not consistent (or at least controversial). Lumiere sounds more straight-ahead French (similar to something I might find in NY or Chicago), but consistent. Is this right?

Also, is there a great little casual place (could be Asian, but not necessarily) that's open late and walking distance of the Wedgewood hotel for our first night in town? Thank you!
