Six Acres. Looking to try a new place, a group of friends and I went with a recommendation for Six Acres. Like the evening air, we went in a bit cold (literally and figuratively) not knowing exactly what to expect, but between the welcoming reservation phone call (which we placed only an hour before wanting [...]
La Buca (Revisited): Game & Wild Mushroom Festival 2011. Having caught wind of the return of the Game & Wild Mushroom Festival at La Buca, one of my favourite spots in the city, I couldn’t help but accept an invitation to dinner there with friends. This was their sixth annual event, so if you haven’t [...]
Oyster Raw Bar I heard about this little hole in the wall about a month ago by chance on twitter. A newly opened raw bar situated in the Old Stock Exchange Building, Oyster is a great, if cramped, space that separates you from the rest of the world with smooth jazz music and dimly lit [...]
Cloud 9 Revolving Restaurant & Lounge We are really lucky here in Vancouver to have such magnificently sweeping and breath taking natural landscapes that blend city with nature. Clearly this fact has been put to good use as we have two sky high restaurants that feature revolving views of the world below and the area where this city [...]
Yew Bar I’ve only had the pleasure of going to Yew Bar a few times, but on each occasion I enjoyed myself quite a bit. Associated with Yew Restaurant and nestled within the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver, Yew Bar is a great place to socialize, grab a drink and/or have a snack. Large seating areas and high [...]
Goldfish Pacific Kitchen – Taste of Yaletown
Taste of Yaletown is on and I got a chance to try out Goldfish Pacific Kitchen last night.
Goldfish Pacific Kitchen is a surprisingly large establishment near the center of Yaledown. Touting large private rooms, a bar height communal table and several booths, the restaurant could cater to almost any size event or gathering with little difficulty.
I got a chance to try the Taste of Yaletown menu at Brix. Overall it was quite an enjoyable experience.
Upon entering the venue, you walk through a small brick walled tunnel, which opens up into a high (roughly three stories), glass roofed courtyard. Tables are set up in the sheltered courtyard under heat lamps and dining “under the stars” is encouraged all year round. We were seated at one of these “outdoor” tables and offered blankets if we felt the chill from the tunnel was not comfortable, but the heat lamps provided enough warmth. The courtyard gave off a pretty cool atmosphere, bathed in the glow of the candles at each table and the low read heat radiating from the heat lamps above.
