Dine Out Starts Today!

by gigi on January 15, 2009

Unless you’ve been living under a culinary rock, you’re probably aware that today is the first day of Dine Out Vancouver 2009. New for this year is a slight increase in the 3-course set menu prices to $18, $28, and $38. I always try to go to at least 1 or 2 dine outs each year but over the years, I find that the quality and service of the offerings has deteriorated somewhat. Now, instead of booking as many restaurants as possible, I try to look for the hidden gems that still keep the original spirit of  Dine Out alive. :) I also tend to avoid the $38 menu restaurants because I feel that at that price, I can just go for the regular menu and get something of almost equal value and I also have more choice.

This year, I’m going to try out Pastis Bistro and maybe Pinkys Steakhouse in Yaletown. They’re both $28 menu offerings and I’ll be sure to report back on how they go.

What restaurants are you going to try at Dine Out this year? Any pleasant surprises that turned out to be better than you expected?
