Dine Out Vancouver Returns


VANCOUVER — Vancouver’s much-anticipated dining-out festival is now open for reservations. With just days to go before the launch of Dine Out Vancouver 2011, the city’s foodies are planning their culinary retreats.

“Vancouver is consistently named one of the top dining cities in the world and Dine Out Vancouver certainly contributes to our city’s food culture and reputation,” said Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson. “The City of Vancouver is a strong supporter of Dine Out Vancouver, and we hope to see it continue to grow and thrive in the years ahead.”

Tourism Vancouver’s annual dining festival, and celebration of local food and British Columbia wine, includes restaurant promotional offers of three-course meals with prix-fixe menus (priced at $18, $28 and $38) at more than 200 restaurants across the city. For an extra cost, many menus come with suggested British Columbia VQA wine pairings, facilitated by the B.C. Wine Institute.

Now in its ninth year, the seasonal promotion has grown to include hotel offers and more than a dozen food-themed events and activities, including culinary tours, cooking lessons, dinner-theatre evenings and special dining events.

Dine Out Vancouver 2011 runs from Jan. 24 to Feb. 6. For the list of participating restaurants and menus, click here.
