best sushi downtown
Okada used to be my favourite sushi place but it’s closed now, so where is the best restaurant for sushi in downtown Vancouver?

By downtown I really mean the downtown peninsula, including the West End, Yaletown, etc.

By “best” I mean highest quality, freshest, good variety, and (obviously) clean/hygienic.

Looking for a restaurant that serves great vegetarian fare, but not just vegetarian
 I'm looking for a restaurant for this Saturday night in Vancouver that serves food a vegetarian would like. Ideally not strictly vegetarian, because I'm not, but I'll make the sacrifice if need be.

It would be a bonus if the the restaurant has a romantic atmosphere.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Farmers Market in Peril!
In case you haven't heard, the farmers market that has been held at Trout Lake for the last 13 years has to move locations this year because the community centre is undergoing renovations. The market society has applied to the city to have the market shifted to the north parking lot (technically John Hendry Park) but they need your help!

Please go to this site and sign the petition. They need 2000 signatures by April 1st.

The market has been a really excellent weekly summer event for the East Van community. Moving it to some other location, not as well established and familliar, would definitely affect all the vendors and consumers in a negative way.

Cross posted a bit.

Looking for a swanky looking resautrant outside the downtown core
 Hi folks,

I'm looking for some suggestions for dinner and drinks on Saturday February 20th for a friend celebrating her birthday. She's a burlesque dancer, as are several of the guests. She's hoping for somewhere kind of swanky, or perhaps old time lounge looking to go.

Because it's smack dab in the middle of the Olympics  ideally the restaurant will be outside the downtown core and easily accessible by transit.

Themed eats?
 Hi everyone :)
Happy Friday!

I was wondering if there are any THEME restaurants/cafes in Vancouver/burnaby/new west/lower mainland area...? 
By theme I mean movies or places or decades or people or anything, really, I know that they are a big thing in Japan and I havent come across any in Vancouver, but you never know.

Here is a wiki on them


Any info would be great! Hope you all have a delicious weekend :)

poor traveller, looking for some yumz
hello all,

i will be nomading my way through vancouver later this weekend, and was hoping some of you fine people could enlighten me on the cheapest possible way to find nourishment in your city? (i have heard all about how pricey life is here, but im sure, like most cities in canada, there are random spots to find cheap food, besides the garbage dumps, although, im not picky! )

: )

thanks in advance, peoples!


will eat:  anything. to be perfectly honest. 
would love to have: fresh fish! (haibut!) i know this comes at a cost, a likely high one. and any recommendations of peoples favorite little hole-in-the-wall type spots in the downtown that serves up good food for decent prices.

Elimination/gluten free diet friendly restaurants?
I'm traveling to Vancouver in a couple of weeks and am looking for any tips on restaurants that are elimination diet friendly. Basically, I'm vegetarian and avoiding all dairy, wheat/gluten, sugar, soy and a bunch of other things... Places where I've generally found food tend to be veggie restaurants, raw food places, and other organic "health food" type restaurants where they list what is gluten free on their menu, or are typically knowledgeable about the ingredients in their food. Any suggestions?

Thanks a bunch!

red velvet cake
Does anyone know of a place that sells red velvet cake by the slice? I know of two places that sell it in cupcake form (Cupcakes and Butter Baked Goods). Are there any other places that carry it?

Thanks in advance!
