Brix Restaurant and Wine Bar was one of the first restaurants in the development of Vancouver’s historic Yaletown quarter as a destination for casual fine dining. <p>Opening in April 1999 in a turn-of-the-century heritage building on Homer Street it quickly became known for its innovative food, an extensive, well priced wine list, and its warm and inviting atmosphere amid the high-beamed ceilings and original exposed-brick walls. <p>A unique glass covered key hole courtyard is one of the city's top restaurant patios and is the only Yaletown outdoor dining space opened past 11pm. <p>An elegant dinner features a wide range of seafood, game, meat and poultry dishes and close proximity to the theatre district makes the light early dining menu a perfect pairing. Brix is also a favourite for the late-night crowd, too, offering great late-night dining into the wee hours. <p><b>Vancouver's top cocktail lounge, George, is only a flight of stairs away down on Hamilton Street.</b>

"We recently ate here with our 2 kids. Sadly, the best meal was our son's chicken fingers. Steak and lamb was under seasoned. The steak was also a bit tough. The beet salad was not good. The mussels were fine, as was the wine."

Chef Liam Spence presents rustic Mediterranean cuisine at Lola, another in the Tom Douglas family of exceptional downtown restaurants. Don’t miss our ouzo sizzling kebabs, steaming savory tagines or our grilled to order pita bread, brought to us fresh from our own Dahlia bread bakery right across the street, twice daily. Located in the heart of the bustling Belltown neighborhood, Lola offers the perfect urban dining experience in it’s upbeat environment, just minutes from downtown shopping and theatre to the south and great music and night life to the north on fourth avenue. We’re committed to a green community, composting 75% of waste and supporting our local growers.

Posto, a modern interpretation of a classic Italian pizzeria, enoteca and trattoria all presented in a “farm chic” open air concept, is a fantastic new addition to Davis Square. Specializing in wood fired Neapolitan Pizza and Italian cuisine. Our menu features handmade pastas, grilled meats and fish, specialty cocktails and an extensive wine by the glass list that is centered around “Enzo,” our imported Italian wine preservation system. Posto is an elegantly appointed venue with subtle contemporary and rustic sophistication providing a family friendly, approachable dining venue. We support local artists, farmers, and ranchers whenever possible.

Tuscan born Chef Cesare Casella, who is also Dean of Italian Studies at the International Culinary Center, collaborates with the Rosi family, renowned in Italy for their family-owned and operated company Parmacotto to bring New York’s Upper West Side Salumeria Rosi Parmacotto.<br />The 25-seat space was designed by Italian Oscar-winning set designer Dante Ferretti and draws inspiration from a traditional Italian salumeria in modern scenery. They have brought to New York the experience found in traditional salumeria throughout Italy; guests can purchase the highest-quality cured or cooked meats to take home, or enjoy time with friends over a glass of wine and a selection of small plates.<br /> The menu consists of assaggi, or tastings, available for lunch and dinner. These assaggi allow everyone to taste a variety of items and experience the spirit of Tuscan flavors to the fullest. Using only the finest and freshest ingredients, Chef Casella offers the best of classic Tuscan cuisine.
