Swedish foodie needs assistance in rainy, cold Vancouver

Rustscheff | Aug 31, 2010 03:04 AM

Dear fellow chowhounds. I will spend oct 30 to nov 5 in Vancouver. Unfortunately alone.
I will be based in the Wedgewood, where I have got a reasonable deal. I am in dire need to settle my oyster cravings regularly. And when I mean cravings, I mean 2 dozen per night. I realise Rodney has 1.50 oysters on their low tide offerings.I know la Brasserie has buck a shuck after 9 PM, What oysters do they have for that price? Likewise, Coast and Relish for their buck-a-shuck? Just one variety? Anyone familiar with a BETTER restaurant than Rodney´s (was distinctly underwhelmed with their other foood in Toronto) if one wants to eat anything else afterwards without breaking the bank in Yaletown? I gather the dine in Yaletown week ends on oct 31. Any suggestions that can´t be missed for oct 31?
I would also love to be able to soothe my cravings for Uni. Any nice affordable place near my hotel for that?
What are Your thoughts for amazing lunch deals around the Conference centre? I see Cardero´s get mixed reviews. Any other suggestions within easy walking distance?
For dinner I had thought Relish for the first night since it is open late and I arrive at the airport 830 PM. What do You think of Twisted Fork, La Brasserie, Le Crocodile and Chambar for the rest of the week? Perhaps an easy night in Hamilton Street grill? Best and most reasonably priced seafood paradise altogether? Coast?
Do comment if You think I have missed anything. The keywords in my list are "fresh cheap oysters of an amazing variety, affordable uni and cozy, affordable restaurants within walking distance of the Wedgewood". And one seafood paradise that can cost a bit more. And quality lunches. I get a substantial break-o for free...
I promise to publish a full review afterwards. Pls see my other postings in the San Diego and New Orleans boards.
Thanking You all in advance I remain
Yours truly
