4 Eco-Friendly Eats


Looking for a meal that’s as good for the environment as it is for you? These Green Table–certified restaurants are sustainable from top to bottom.

1 Hamilton Street Grill Warm and friendly, this converted Yaletown warehouse is known for certified Angus steaks and great seafood.

2 Raincity Grill Across the street from English Bay beach, regional-seasonal plates are paired with wines from throughout the Pacific Northwest.

3 Commune Cafe Right downtown, this minimalist cafeteria-style spot with a hipster buzz serves all things free-range, organic and sustainable, from dawn to dusk and beyond.

4 Bistro Pastis Classic but polished French bistro fare, from foie de veau to bouillabaisse to steak frites, is served hearth-side in the heart of trendy Kitsilano. —Tim Pawsey
