Have you recently moved to Vancouver and aren’t sure what places are good to eat? Or, maybe you’ve lived in Vancouver for years and you’re just looking to branch out a little bit and try a few new restaurants. There are some fantastic restaurants in the area that are highlighted below. So get out there and start enjoying the fantastic cuisine at these restaurant spots!
1905 Main Street
This café, deli, and wine shop is really something special! The restaurant is small and gets crowded quickly – for good reason! They specialize in fresh, local, seasonal ingredients and make everything from scratch. Their wine list is extensive and there are a variety of different things in their deli and freezer case for you to choose from if you want to stop in and grab something to cook at home later. They also have regular wine dinner events, which can be a fun thing to do with a group of friends. You’ll find a great selection on the menu, but here’s a hint on a must try: the smoked mushroom ravioli is to die for.
2520 Columbia House Blvd., Suite 108
Located conveniently off Hwy 14 at Grand Central, you’ll find a restaurant with a sustainable approach to cooking. The scintillating scent of a blazing wood fire oven greets guests as they walk into Lapellah’s classy interior. The chef’s menu offers classic plates given the wood-fired treatment. Start with freshly baked flatbread accompanied with rich and smoky spinach and artichoke dip, then graduate to a generous piece of brick oven roasted Alaskan halibut. The wine list features a fine selection of Northwest bottles along with some affordable offerings from the Old World.
Three Sixty Kitchen & Bar
3425 Southeast 192nd Avenue
This pizzeria is known for its original creations inspired by local ingredients or trips to distant places of the world as well as more classic dishes inspired by older generations. If you’re a meat lover, the roasted marrow bones with chimichurri, house pickles, and a grilled baguette is a unique item that will tickle the palate. Another definite must try is the pizza with house-made Italian sausage, crimini mushrooms, roasted peppers & garlic, with grilled onions. Yum!
213 W. 11th Street
Love Thai food? This is a great place to indulge in the beauty & flavor of Thai food. This place has a great, affordable happy hour menu with lots of sushi options. The edemame is a fantastic appetizer choice, then enjoy a hearty dish of pad Thai or chicken curry. There are a lot of gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options here, too!
