Vancouver has one of the most vibrant food cultures in the world. That’s because it has access to ALL the food cultures of the world! Our status as a port city means that we get the best of everywhere. And there’s no better time to experience it than during Dine Out Vancouver!
For the uninitiated, Dine Out is a food festival that happens across the city. Restaurants agree to offer a 3-course, prix fixe meal that gives customers an exciting opportunity to get great food for an even better value. Here are some of the restaurants on the North Shore that we’re excited to hit up!
The North Shore’s favourite Italian restaurant, Bravo Cucina provides an intimate location with atmosphere brick walls, classic white linens and candlelight. The perfect setting for a romantic dinner or a family feast, North Vancouverites have been visiting Bravo for years. Their dine-out menu includes an entrée choice of arctic char with caramelised Onions & vermouth beurre blanc, pumpkin ravioli w/gorgonzola & blue cheese sauce, braised radicchio, and beef short rib with cabernet reduction & veggies mirapoix, served on Rosemary Mashed Potatoes! Honestly, I’m tempted to go three times to try all of them!
French cuisine has long been synonymous for fine dining. West Vancouver’s Café Ça Va is no exception, ably winning Vancouver Magazine’s “2017 Restaurant Award” for its sumptuous meals and relaxed but elegant atmosphere. Enjoy mussels in a tomato chorizo broth, followed by butternut squash ravioli in a sage brown butters sauce with roasted pumpkin seeds, and enjoy a dark espresso with a red wine poached pear for dessert. Simply divine.
Those are some of our favourites, but there are plenty of other options – check out Dine Out’s website to find a truly memorable eating experience!
