Society Dining Lounge on Urbanspoon

We have previously enjoyed several meals at Coast Restaurant, the previous Glowbal Group restaurant at this location on Hamilton Street but since Coast has been re-incarnated on Alberni Street, and the eatery at this location was reborn as Society, we have not had the opportunity to...

The Edge Social Grille and Lounge was one of the restaurants we visited on the recent Foodie Tour hosted by Michelle Ng:  Foodie Tours rediscovers Granville Street 2010. I so much enjoyed the flatbread samples at The Edge provided for...

Oru at Fairmont Pacific Rim on Urbanspoon

Although located in the Fairmont Pacific Rim,  Oru is a "free-standing Pan-Asian Bistro", serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week.

We visited Oru for lunch and were impressed by the open airy feel of the room. Oru is derived from...

Zest on Urbanspoon

 Enroute to see Twelfth Night at Jericho Arts Centre we stopped off for dinner at Zest Restaurant, tucked away near the corner of 16th and MacDonald.

On the Granville Street Foodie Tour, I had learned that Zest and ShuRaku (on Granville Street) are sister restaurants. The ShuRaku taste...

Guest Reviewer Amanda Lockitch: FoodieEvery so often my mother makes me metaphorically sing for my supper.
This time she said, "I'll take you on this awesome food tour of Vancouver IF you write it up for Sipping and Supping".

A day of walking in downtown Vancouver, eating really good food at places I've never been to, and hanging with my mom? Sounds pretty win-win-win to me!
So here it goes:

Vancouver, BC
Ph: (604) 676-1007 or Reserve online

Continuing my exploration of supping locales close to the theatres at UBC and  Jericho Arts Centre  (where we were going to see The Misanthrope), we booked at La Quercia, on West 4th Avenue, near Alma.

This is a small intimate Italian restaurant and obviously a  neighbourhood gem because there was not an empty table by the time we...

Sanafir Restaurant and Lounge on Urbanspoon

Sanafir has been on my "to visit" list for ages but somehow the right opportunity did not come up.  Finally, after a West Coast Swing class at UrbanBeat that ended at 8:30 pm, three of us walked a block over and across Granville Street, to Sanafir...

Last summer we dropped into Goldfish Pacific Kitchen for an early dinner in their courtyard patio. Our waiter introduced us to their experimental Chef's table dinner concept and we were intrigued enough at the time to try it out.

The idea was that rather than ordering from the regular menu, we would chat with...

Ph: 604-251-3473 or Reserve Online

I have been on the hunt for places to "dine and dance" in Vancouver but this seems to be a rare entity these days. Federico's Supper Club is one of those few places that has a dance floor, albeit not large.

The evening when a group of us decided to check out this restaurant turned out to be the...

I have now enjoyed two excellent meals at the revamped Lupo Restaurant and this review reports on both of them.

The last time I had dined at that location was before there was a change in ownership last July. Julio Gonzalez Perini who ran Villa Del Lupo in the Heritage house on Hamilton Street for many years, sold it in...
