I am traveling to Vancouver, B.C. at the end of the month and was wondering if anyone knows of any shops there worth visiting. Restaurant recommendations would also be appreciated!

Thanks in Advance.

No good shops really to speak of compared to many places, but as for restaurants, there are many excellent places to choose from. I'd suggest:

French: Mistral or Jules for value, Le Crocodile for execution
Continental: Parkside on Haro
Italian: Cioppino's
Japanese: Everyone will say Tojo's, but I actually prefer the many Izakaya joints around town (Hapa is good, so are all of the Guus)
Indian: Vij's
Portuguese: Senova
Seafood: C (I don't really suggest it, I think it's boring: but I'd be shot if I didn't list it)
Latin: Baru Latino
Belgian: Chambar
SE Asian: Phnom Penh (in a bit of a sketchy neighbourhood, but worth it)
Dim Sum: Kirin
Late Night: BIN 941/942
Fish & Chips (Shush, I think of it as a foodgroup): Go Fish

You might see some trad stuff at Edward Chapman's, but I haven't been in there in some time.

If you like Indian food, the Vij's recommendation is spot on. I like Gotham for steaks, and Il Giardino is nice old school Italian. Szechuan Chongking is my choice for Szechuan, though some may argue that one.

Thanks for all the recommendations. Think I'll definitely try out Vij's for Indian food. I can't wait to escape the miserable Texas summer. I'll look up Edward Chapman's to see if it's nearby my hotel. I'm staying about 5 blocks from Stanley Park.

I'm going to recommend Carderro's on the waterfront. I haven't been to Vancouver for a couple years, but this restaurant defines the city for me. It's kind of an upscale casual, great seafood, nice views. It's close to Stanley Park as well.

Last time I was there I had a wonderful lunch at the Fairmont Waterfront as well.

The wife loves seafood, so she'll no doubt want to go. I am confronted with many good choices which can be a fortunate thing. I'm sure I'll be the only one not wearing fleece, but I don't mind :icon_smile_big:.

Be sure to go to a steak or chop house. I'd like to hear how you think Alberta beef stacks up against Texas.

Also, if you don't mind the prices, try the revolving restaurant at the Waterfront Centre.
