5 innovative restaurants to seek out in Vancouver
Vancouver’s trailblazing restaurants have long relied on the local bounty of British Columbia’s lush ecosystem. An increasing number prioritize ingredients that are sourced responsibly and whip up genre-defying cuisine. And many distinguish themselves with innovative efforts that support BC’s most vulnerable communities.
An easygoing cocktail parlour in Gastown directs some of its proceeds to a local charity that provides 1,000 made-from-scratch meals to local residents on a daily basis. The city’s only Indigenous-owned and -operated restaurant is poised to open a second location in Vancouver International Airport. A revered Mediterranean chef’s boundary-pushing plates landed him the prestigious Order of the Star of Italy.

They also offer the opportunity to uplift local neighbourhoods and protect the environment that feeds us.
