I think you are thinking of the cafe side. It’s not a quick bite on the bacaro side.

I will say, that it’s a certain type of food that I think is a specific type of person that will appreciate it most. It’s very simple, ingredient driven food that’s prepared with extreme care. If you don’t get excited about a perfect tomato and angry when you see a shitty tomato, you might not be blown away by it. Not to be snobby, but if you are looking for “fancy” it’s not it.
For those that really appreciate good ingredients, you will definitely be blown away.
Yea I had dinner there recently with wife and another couple and we all loved it. Highly recommended it to another close couple who just went and not only was not blown away but probably didn't really enjoy it at all. Different strokes for different folks.

Just wanted to give all of you a friendly heads up. I will no longer be at the Ebisu on Robson location as of today.
I will be taking over the location on West Broadway, there's going to be changes coming. Just wanted to thank all of you who have visited me here over the past 16 years.

Hope you guys can come visit me once I'm settled into the Broadway location! Equal parts excited and stressed hah

Appreciate the recommendation!

Nightingale for wife’s work Xmas party. I’d been there once before but more so just dropping in. This was a set menu served family style. Really good and a great spot for 10-12 people

The winner for me was the steak and the sweet potato baked potatoes lol. Fantastic wine and whiskey list there

Had the burger today and it was very good. Didnít feel comfortable putting it down which is my sign of a tasty burger. Amazing crust on the patty. That said, mine was done more than medium Iíd say. Still tender and juicy but def no pinkish hue let alone pink centre.

The fries were excellent I must say and Iím not much of a fry guy. Nice spot. Will return and hope I wonít have to park 6kms away lol. Next time Iíll try the animal burger. I was jealous of the lettuce and tomato on my clientís burg.

Thanks again for the recommendation

Went to District 11 on Main St, a Japanese x Vietnamese fusion place, for some late night food (~ 12am). Honestly, I should have known better than to go to a f u-sion place. You know how every viet place you go to, you try their regular pho first, cause there's no way they can f up normal pho. Wrong. The broth was very bland, kinda like getting crappy noodles from No. 9 - tasteless. So much for an "authentic" menu. Man i miss my ex's pho LOL

We also ordered Aburi Crispy Rice, California Tempura, Banh Xeo Ebi Tempura, and Nori Truffle Fries. All left us like ???? confuse

Got the Shiso-Melon cocktail and uh I guess my mistake was thinking that I'd like Soho Lychee now, more than I did in high school. I didn't. Guess that one was on me.

any recommendations on a seafood (westcoast) restaurant in vancouver? fine dining, a plus if it has a seafood tower of some sort (prefer to not have spicy tuna roll or similar on it).

Blue Water Cafe if you’re super fancy.

Beach House in west Vancouver isn’t too bad. $100 on Sundays.

Went to Yugo yesterday with a client yesterday.

It was alright? Take my comments as a grain of salt though, not the biggest fan of Japanese food in general.

The Yugo Sour was fantastic though.

Finally went to Published. Wifey and I have been trying to go for like 6 months but it was always difficult to book because we have a couple kids at home so the weekday bookings were a little too late because of it being a school night. Was it good? Yea it was good, not my most memorable meal good but good enough that I want to go back and try the tasting menu. Like the look of the place, simple and clean and without a bougie vibe.

Le Crocodile, haven't been here for a lot of years for no real reason we've always had a decent time here. It didn't disappoint and was as solid as ever.

Good to hear about Le Croc, honestly kind of surprised they survived. Might be my favourite restaurant in Vancouver as cliched and old school as it can be lol

Ha yea surprised and not surprised at the same time with so many more modern looking places there's always something nice about a place like le croc. It was full house when I went Saturday and people were still waiting to come in for 2nd seatings at like 900

Places like that are needed. Honestly no matter how old school or cliche they are, when they do it perfectly, there’s nothing to match it.
Even at a place like fortes, the food isn’t amazing, but the experience as a whole is spectacular.
The food at croc isn’t trying to be something that it isn’t. It’s classic and executed perfectly, which is way more impressive than some experiment that isn’t.

holy shit good thing i didnt get the pho! Almost tempting because of "TikTok showed us". I ordered the Lemongrass Chili Miso Cod, fucking scaaaam. The sushi rice was a size of half a puck which was deep fried.

Will I ever go again? no, a hell no. Cool concept, but wrong location to sell that type of food. If they were more towards Main and 1st, that would be cool.
