The best way to experience a kitchen at its peak is to let the chef choose the meal—and the sommelier choose the wines. These restaurants excel:
Mak N Ming: Intricately created French-Japanese dishes on a constantly changing menu are offered as three or six courses. Currently among the hottest tables in town.
West: Find contemporary fare on South Granville. The seasonally changing set menus celebrate the bounty that is BC.
Hawksworth: David Hawksworth was among a handful of chefs who established Vancouver’s tasting menu tradition. His West Coast fare is always on the cutting edge.
Tojo’s: Canada’s king of sushi offers omakase (chef’s choice) options to suit every appetite and wallet. Sit at the bar while the chef explains his technique and ingredients.
