YBIA Reveals Participating Restaurants for the 15th Annual Taste of Yaletown
The annual Yaletown dining event returns with Happy Hour deals in addition to tiered pricing set menus
The Yaletown Business Improvement Association (YBIA) is proud to announce the 15th annual Taste of Yaletown (TOY), a popular community-based event that invites the public to try a variety of dishes from premier restaurants throughout the neighbourhood. From October 17th to 27th, restaurants will offer diners the choice of special menus at set prices of $35, $45, and $55, or dining casually with Happy Hour deals.
This year’s Taste of Yaletown is embracing Vancouver’s Happy Hour culture with their #MyHappyHour theme. Participating restaurants will offer Happy Hour menus for Taste of Yaletown, giving diners the chance to experience small dishes and select drinks from their menu. With #MyHappyHour, diners now have the choice between having a 3-course menu or grabbing a few bites and drinks after work. New this year, #MyHappyHour FREE public Wi-Fi will take you directly to the best Happy Hour spots in Yaletown.
As Yaletown continues to grow as a premier dining hub in the city of Vancouver, the YBIA is pleased to have many long-standing dining establishments participate in the food festival year-after-year. Among these returning restaurants are local favourites, Brix and Mortar, House Special, The Keg Steakhouse and Bar and The Greek By Anatoli, who will once again be offering delicious menus throughout the event.
Yaletown restaurants will offer special menus and pairings for a limited time, making Taste of Yaletown the perfect time to celebrate and savour Vancouver’s best dining district, revel in the longstanding restaurants and pre-book reservations for holiday parties.
“Taste of Yaletown is a longstanding community event, connecting people with Yaletown over exquisite culinary dishes,” states Annette O’Shea, Executive Director of the Yaletown Business Improvement Association. “This year is all about choice, we know diners don’t always have time for a 3-course menu, so we wanted to provide them with a taste of Happy Hour. The event showcases our local chef’s talents and allows the city to come out and experience some of Vancouver’s top restaurants, at a price they can afford.”
The Yaletown Business Improvement Association is dedicated to supporting business in the neighbourhood but also committed to giving back to the community. For the 15th year in a row, Yaletown will be making a donation to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Taste of Yaletown has raised over $115,000 in efforts to support the local community since the event began in 2004.
