Thanks to chowhound, we had five fabulous meals in our three days (I don't eat breakfast out):
Kintaro: A world class bowl of ramen soup.
Cannery: Somewhat touristy seafood place, but the view is fantastic (we watched the sun set from our table) and the seafood is simple and very well done.
Sun Sui Wah: for a "from the cart" dim sum experience, tops.
Hapa Izakaya: small plate Japanese, and our most fun meal.
Feenies: I'm not sure I'd do dinner, but it was a great lunch. The poutine is fantastic.
Parkside Cafe: top flight food at a very reasonable price ($200 U.S. for five people with one bottle of wine and dessert for everyone).
This Chicago family loved Vancouver.
