I've been reading this board religiously since I discovered it recently to prepare for a trip to Vancouver in July. We'll have four nights, and usually like at least one sensational/expensive meal, and a couple of delicious more casual ethnic meals, and ideally something unique to the area. Here's what I've gleaned from the list (recognizing that there's a wide variety of opinion, and that any list is totally partial, of course):
Sensational/expensive: Ouest, Lumiere or Tojo
Casual ethnic: Vij, Fook Yuen, Fortune Restuarant, Floata, Yoshi, Grand King
Unique to Area: Salmon House on the Hill
Are these generally good bets? Any comments, deletions or additions would be much appreciated. Also, Conde Naste Traveler just ranked Lucy Mae Brown one of its top new restaurants--can anyone comment?
