  1. I wonder how hard it is for restuarants to meet the music needs of a wide demograph of people, especially during DOV when all ages come out. Seems like it would be a bigger challenge than preparing and presenting food. I am hoping to try a few restaurants for DOV and want to get into Yew if there is still room available. I usually don't go to hotels to eat but I have heard good things about this restuarant. Anyone been there for DOV yet?
  2. City Dine 2007 has posted their website with participating restaurants and menus. Looking forward to trying some of the new restaurants that have opened up since DOV in January.
  3. Anyone know the details for City Dine this year? I know it was mid September last year and that the website listing the restaurants was released the end of July.
  4. So what is the scoop on yesterday's Vancouver Mag Awards? Who won what? Any surprises? What was the theme for this year and when do we see the issue on the shelves?
  5. I found the food very good and inventive on my two visits to Gastropod. Angus has a nice touch in the kitchen (try the oysters). I do have to agree with Fanny Bay about the service and a feeling of being left alone at the front door. I think the room needs a presence, someone to take charge in the foh and make you feel welcome and thanked when you leave. Very fixable in my opinion and they are a great part of the new restaurant destination that W.4th and Cypress has become along with Fuel and Bistrot Bistro.
  6. Read the story in the Province the other day. $900,000, wow. After reading some of the posts up thread and on Dinehere.ca I am excited to try it out. Can a place really have that bad of service? I want to go just to see (and have a calzone). If the owner is as grumpy as people have posted this settlement must have him over the top by now.
  7. I agree with all of the above. Rare (great quality and value $65 tasting menu), Aurora (local products and the chef was runnr up for chef of the year) and Parkside (solid choice) are great. Try Fuel as well on 4th and Cypress, new restaurant that will be among the best of 2007 IMHO.
  8. I believe that Quattro has a 3 course prix fixe for $35 that they are running to the end of February. I know that Rare is extending their $35 menu till Feb. 11th and I am not 100% sure but I think C is as well, they may have just added time before the event started so don't quote me on that.
  9. Dinehere is a joke in my opinion and so i read it when i need a laugh.
  10. Eagrely anticipating the release of the restaurants participating this year. Restaurants i would love to check out but not sure if they are participating in DOV... 1.) Fuel 2.) RCB (Connor Butler) 3.) West 4.) Rare 5.) Lucky Diner I am not making any resolutions of trying to lose weight in January, not until Dine Out is over.
  11. Is Lucky Diner accepting Credit or Debit cards?
  12. I read her reviews for entertainment. As Daddy A mentioned I need to try something myself when it comes to taste. As far as the review on Connor Butler it should have helped his restaurant as most people not connected to the weird world of food forums had no idea the restaurant existed.
  13. Interesting review. She is always entertaining to read. There is an interview of Connor Butler from Urban Diner that doesn't make him seem so full of himself Ckick here I like alot of the things he said about the food scene in Vancouver.
  14. Why the hell do we let French tire manufacturers rate restaurants? Or Automotive clubs such as AAA? Who is qualified to rank restaurants? The food writer for the Globe and Mail? Anyone who has the ability to create a blog? I don't think your "larger issue" is an issue.
  15. It is great to see two Vancouver restaurants in the Top 5 in Canada.
