During the month of October, there are two dining events happening around town:
Eat & Drink BC
For those who support local food producers, don’t miss Eat & Drink BC that ‘s happening right now until Oct 31. A number of restaurants across BC have put together prix fixe menus that feature foods grown, raised or majority processed in B.C. To see a list of participating restaurants, visit the website at www.bcrfa.com/eat-+-drink-bc/.
Among the participating restaurants, here are a few that I’ve visited in the past:
- Bridges Bistro (July 2009)
- Irashai Grill (May 2009)
- Nu (April 2009)
- Mosaic Restaurant (Jan 2009)
- C Restaurant (Feb 2008)
- Le Gavroche Restaurant (Jan 2008)
- Don Francesco Ristorante (Jan 2008)
Taste of Yaletown
And if you enjoy the hippy atmosphere, you don’t want to miss the Taste of Yaletown event. Between Oct 15 and Oct 31, diners are invited to visit over 20 restaurants in the area for a tasting menu priced at $25, $35 or $45. Its website is www.tasteofyaletown.com.
I’ve visited a few of them and hope the following can help you learn a bit more about the restaurants:
- Goldfish Pacific Kitchen (Aug 2009)
- R.TL (by Frank, Aug 2009)
- Mon Bella Bistoria (April 2009)
- Glowbal Grill & Satay Bar (March 2009)
I do plan on visiting a couple of places for these two events. I will share my experience here. Stay tuned.
