Best Sustainable Dining
There are two standouts in this category. Raincity Grill was one of the first Vancouver eateries to source all its products locally and responsibly, and it features a memorable "100 Mile" menu with food harvested, caught, or grown within 100 miles of Vancouver. Frank Pabst, the chef at Blue Water Cafe and Raw Bar, creates fabulously inventive dishes using only wild and sustainably harvested seafood.
Best Pacific Northwest Cuisine
West is the best -- for an all-around, upscale, Pacific Northwest dining experience. But don't just take my word for it. This storied West Side eatery wins annual accolades, including an enduring top-three spot in Vancouver magazine's "Best Restaurant" category.
For a combination of top-notch food and a killer view of mountains, Burrard Inlet, and Stanley Park, try Lift.
Best Chinese Cuisine
The best Vancouver Chinese remains Sun Sui Wah. It's definitely worth the trip, although you need a group of at least four to sample a variety of dishes.
Bao Bei serves a series of inventive small Brasserie-style plates in its cheeky Gastown dining room.
Best Sushi and Sashimi
If you're looking for the best sushi and sashimi in Vancouver, Tojo's Restaurant is the place to go. It's expensive, but you'll be treated to the freshest fish and most exquisitely prepared seafood delicacies in BC.
Best Outdoor Dining
It's not fine dining, but for unsurpassed ocean views from Ferguson Point, reserve a table under the trees at the Teahouse in Stanley Park. This patio also doubles as the best place to watch the sunset.
