Where to Eat around The Westin Grand, Vancouver
Collected by Westin AFAR
The seaport city of Vancouver is where nature meets metropolis. Skyscrapers rise between green peaks, boutiques pop up near totem poles, and the coast stretches from parks to palaces. It’s a place to take in the view and a breath of fresh air. Oh, Canada.

Sure, it’s a bit of a splurge but it’s likely some of the best seafood you’ll eat in North America. I love the seafood towers, especially when they showcase the incredible bounty of all-BC seafood. Chef Frank Pabst is one of the...

This little hideaway in a back alley, with its communal tables and chalkboard menus, is where I go with friends when we want to share snacks. They match wines to "tasting trios" selected from their cheese and charcuterie cellar. It’s best to let...

Mark Brand revamped this 55-year-old institution while keeping it a place that longtime Gastown residents could still recognize and enjoy. The classic menu at this part butcher shop, part retro diner includes burgers, fried chicken, and sundaes. ...

Yamato Sushi doesn't have a big space but if you're looking for one of the best cheap eats in Vancouver, it's worth it. You may have to wait, but it won’t be for long. The value here was phenomenal: over nineteen rolls plus gyoza and green tea...

At the top of Grouse Mountain I came across the bear enclosure and managed to see this beautiful baby Grizzly Bear. Whilst being Summer time, there was still snow prevalent on the top of the mountain, which is also called the Peak of Vancouver.

Granville Island Market was pulsing with energy from musicians, tourists, and a frenzy of food markets. After living in a desert region for so long, it was awesome to get a hold of fresh fish, fresh fruit, and the German sausage was pretty amazing...

The Noodle Box started life as a street cart in Victoria and now has eight restaurants on Vancouver Island and two in Vancouver—one off West 4th Street (near Kits Beach) and the other on Homer Street (downtown). The never-fail lunch spot has...

Like the name says: just braised or slow-roasted meats, served on ciabatta buns. They are known for their hand-carved porchetta, but I order the daily special—that is, if I can get there before 2 p.m. The restaurant is first come, first served, so...

One of western Canada's most celebrated chefs, Ned Bell, oversees the kitchen at Yew Restaurant and Bar, located within the downtown Four Seasons Hotel connected to the Pacific Centre Mall. The dining room has the feeling of a forest—with high...

Apparently the Loden was one of the first boutique hotels in Vancouver. I don't know what template they used, but it works very well—smart, modern, huge rooms, and a really good level of service. What's particularly nice about it its restaurant,...

I love the lights, the carols, the colors, and the food of Christmas. I have always wanted to take in the famed German and Austrian markets, but I have yet to make the trip. If you are on the West Coast of North America, the Vancouver German...
