I love Vancouver. I especially love late January/early February in Vancouver. Why? Each year during this time, Tourism Vancouver puts on a city-wide celebration of food and British Columbia Wine known as Dine Out Vancouver. If you live in the Lower Mainland and you’ve never participated in Dine Out, I urge you to try it out this year. Tourism Vancouver’s website describes Dine Out as:
“giving you the chance to taste Vancouver’s hot restaurant digs, new hit eateries and neighbourhood favourites all for a reasonable prix-fixe price.”
Simply, Dine Out is awesome! This year, Hubby and I have combined Dine Out with date night and we’re doing “T&A Dine Out Date Nights”. This allows us to have our much-needed date nights, but keeps us within our monthly budget.
This year, we’re trying two new restaurants: Salt Tasting Room ($28 menu) and Poor Italian Trattoria & Ristorante ($38 menu). I’ve wanted to check out the Salt Tasting Room ever since I saw it featured on a Food Network program about Vancouver eateries, and Hubby always says “I want to try that place” whenever we pass the Poor Italian. So, Dine Out is a perfect way to experience these restaurants, yet not spend a fortune.
Are you participating in Dine Out this year? What restaurants will you be trying out?
