Event: Vanmag Restaurant Awards 2011
Venue: Joey Burrard
Date: Apr. 10, 2011
Every great city is known for a signature food – Paris for its croissants, Tokyo for its sashimi – but Vancouver offers more than just one great dish from the international culinary spectrum. We've long been known for our mountains, lakes, and outdoor wonders, and now our gastronomic delights are putting us on the map.
The culinary heart of our city has shifted toward Gastown and its high-quality casual food. In a post-recession economy, diners want fine fare but at fair prices. New upstarts and perennial favourites shone at this year's Vancouver Restaurant Awards, recognizing the best dining the city has to offer.
