Stop the Press!
The participating restaurant list for Dine Out Vancouver 2007 had just been released this morning. If you are interested in attending this event, you really need to be quick and make your reservations. The best restaurants gets fully booked up very fast. If you are a Vancouverite, you should it check out. The site had been running very slow since this morning … I think it’s caused by increased traffic.
A little about Dine Out Vancouver 2007. This is THE Food and Wine event in Vancouver and had been running for the past four years. It had been highly successful and gets bigger with more participating restaurants every year. For this year it is going to be held from January 19th to February 4th with 156 leading restaurants in Vancouver.
The restaurants were grouped by menu prices of $15, $25 or $35 (this amount does not include drinks and gratuity). This is your opportunity to try out the best of Vancouver restaurants for a fixed amount. Suanne and I attended one (at Horizons) last January and did blog on that experience here. I tell you, the food was marvelous and for $25 that we spent, it was worth every penny. You should plan to attend at least one.
We were looking for Lumiere (they are the one with the $150 per person set menu!) but apparently they are not participating this year. 🙁 Any suggestion for Suanne and I? We had made bookings for A Kettle of Fish, Herons, Sequoia Grill, Le Gavroche, and Parkside. We have never been to these places before — if you have been there before, let us know what you think of them.
