Thanks everyone for your help. Much appreciated.
After reading through some of the comments, I've revised the list to the following:
Slough Foods, Breadfarm, Kafka's, Miku, Vij's, Pasta Lupino, Jade Restaurant, Chuckanut Oyster Bar, Revolver Coffee
On a related note, has anyone ever been to Go Fish Ocean Emporium? Is this a worthwhile stop? Also, what is the best way to navigate through Granville Island?
We are two adventurous New Yorkers traveling to the Pacific NW region in July and were wondering if anybody had any food-related suggestions for my trip. We will have a car, appetites, and willing to travel for the memorable meal. CREATIVE and LOCALLY SOURCED meals are always preferred.
Our current itinerary includes:
Mini road trip to Vancouver from Seattle - any stops in between?
Few nights in downtown Vancouver
At least a night in Whistler
Recommendations we've heard so far (let us know if you feel strongly against any):
Breakfast/Brunch - Cafe Artigiano, Templeton, Sun Sui Wah (dim sum)
Lunch/Dinner - Flying Pig Yaletown, Vijs, Save on Meats, Go Fish Ocean Emporium, Guu Izakaya
In Between/Late Night - Chinatown night market, JapaDog, Fritz Fry House, Slough Foods (in WA)
