Quality over notoriety, substance over sizzle; where does Vancouver go for local and foodie-worthy chow?

The Assignment
A 30-something couple from Oakville, Ontario is heading to YVR for a few days. If asked, we could steer Vancouver hounds to places in and around Toronto that would hit the mark, depending on the mark being aimed at, that are not necessarily on the mainstream radar. Having said that, we also really love some places that are on the radar - we are just really into great expressions of the cuisine being offered. So, if you were going to give your one recommendation of where to go for "x" in Vancouver - what would it be?
Sushi?
Local, sustainable, farm to table?
Fresh seafood?
Italian?
French?
Place to see and be seen (vibe-centric, food secondary..maybe dessert?)
Icon-worthy?
Wine list?
Small plates?

We arrive on Thursday, March 18th for three nights and will report back on our adventures..

Thanks!
