A Grand time at the Dine Out Vancouver Festival kickoff – The Grand Tasting

Dine Out Vancouver Festival – The Grand Tasting was an opportunity to taste bites from fourteen local restaurants that are participating in Dine Out Vancouver Festival which begins today and runs through February 4th. Alongside the culinary stations was a representation of BC wineries. This included 27 wineries, four breweries, cideries and distillers. So basically two stations of libations for every culinary station.

Where are you dining for Dine Out Vancouver Fest? – Vancouver Fish Company

Clearly the Vancouver Fish Company knows seafood and how to prepare some fabulous fare. “Home of Amazing Seafood and West Coast Hospitality” is their mantra and I would concur. Although we enjoyed just a sampling of each dish it was enough to recommend Vancouver Fish Company as a “must visit” during Dine Out Vancouver Festival.

The dinner was nothing short of fabulous. Service impeccable. The TWG Tea salon is a formal yet very comfortable room. This is where you take your mother, grandmother or favourite aunt. It also would be a fun spot to take your best girlfriend before you hit the holiday party circuit. You should try it.  Please note TWG Tea on Georgia Street closes at 7:00 pm.
