Returning visitors to Vancouver - need updates and recommendations

Strider | Apr 20, 2010 10:39 AM

My wife and I are regular Vancouver visitors from Calgary, but we haven't been able to make it out there for about 2 years now. We're coming out for a week in May and need some updates on which restaurants have fallen from their graces as well as some recommendations on new places to try... I'm sure a lot has changed.

Here's some of our past favorites:
-Stepho's (probably not the best greek restaurant, but a Kleftico entree in Calgary costs about $25 and is nowhere near as flavorful or filling)
-Crystal Mall food court (for XLB)

Other random things we like:
-Caffe Artigiano
-JJ Bean
-Granville island (for a picnic)
-Aberdeen food court
-Mondo Gelato

And our hit list for this trip:
-Alvin Garden

We want to know the best of every cuisine there is, white linen or hole in the wall... we're renting a car and will drive across the entire city for a great meal. Bonus points for things we can't get in Calgary (like decent XLB or ramen).
