Don't understand why people get so excited about food and especially fine dining food. You eat, you shit it out. Haha. There goes your hard earned $$ that you worked many hours for.

Well this is the food thread. I won't argue about it. Let's just stick to the topic of dine out LOL.

Parkside is always a good choice, one of my "impress someone" restaurants. I am Actually heading there next weekend but not to impress this one lol just to eat.

I am not a huge fan of dine out, but a little disappointed to not see chambar on the list this year.

Hah! you just don't care because you get guys to pay for you.

But really, fine dining isn't worth it.

All of those restaurants blow, especially gastropod because it's super pretentious, season's in the park is meh.

REMEMBER IF YOU ARE GOING TO A NICE RESTAURANT, JUST BECAUSE IT'S DINE OUT DOESN'T MEAN IT'S OKAY TO WEAR JEANS AND A FUCKING T-SHIRT OKAY?

^^ Gold.


Any other good recommendations? I've no experiences with most of the restaurants. I'm a red meat person, and have tried Aqua Riva, Pinky's for their steak. I've made a reservation at Joe Fortes because I LOVE oysters and there's a steak entree too.

Life is too short!!! If I die, I cannot take my money with me. So I always try to enjoy the art of culinary to excite my taste buds.

Pinky's steak was pretty good, but not worth it imo. I wasn't feeling the caesar salad too (made with hearts, not chopped romaine). After alcohol and appies it was like 70 bucks. Thinking about it, not worth it. But it's good.

The only thing that eased the hit on the wallet? The "scenery", if you know what I mean

This was in Yaletown btw, so that part is pretty self-explanatory.

Got: Quattro on Fourth, Yew, Il Guardino, Raincity Grill and Cobre

Don't go to C's!!!!!! I went there last year and the portions were so small!!!! Other standouts were Bacchus and CinCin's. My friend went to Gastropod before and it was good as well.
No Chambar!! I went last year and it was really good!!

p.s. Chinese New Year is on the 26th of this month. Chinese New Year Dinner at a Dine Out Restaurant???? heehee
