I'm having brain cramps & need your help. We are going to YVR in early Sep and want to take friends to dinner. I'm looking for some recommendations, due the D + D laws, preferably in the Hastings/Commercial/Renfrew area.
There used to be a place called (I think) La Violetta on Hastings just above Cassiar - is it still there? I understand Nick's is getting pretty pricey for the 'class' of restaurant & The Cannery is no longer there so I am kinda lost. Haven't been on Commercial Drive for year so there may be some great ones there I don't know about.
If you know this general area and can make some reco's it will be much appreciated. I lived all my life in YVR until the last 5 years. I'm amazed how quickly I have fallen out of touch with the restaurant scene there since moving here.
