I'm looking for a few places for dinner while I'm staying at the Sutton (Burrard and Nelson). I'm willing to walk 15/20 minutes in any direction, but a very proximate option would be great for bad-weather nights.
I like places where I can sit alone at the bar (but not get cruised... solo woman). Ideal place would have interesting cocktails (or a decent wine list), some lighter menu options, and a nice vibe for lingering. Online, I like the look of something like Parkside or Jules.
Also looking for a good sushi spot in the area, but it doesn't have to have atmosphere, just great fish.
