Dockside Restaurant at the Granville Island Hotel is a favorite place of mine for pre-show dining and as you can tell from my last two reviews (Dockside and Dockside:Take 2) I have generally really appreciated the food there. So I was very interested to learn that Chef Simon McNeil has taken over as Executive Chef, and to find out what he plans for the menu, at a Meet the Chef event.
A short walk down to the dock and there was not long to wait for the Aquabus ferry, which took me across to the Granville Island. At home I can look out over False Creek directly at the restaurant and their inviting patio. From the GI dock a five minute walk took me to the tip of Granville Island where Dockside Restaurant is located.
