Best West Coast Restaurants in Vancouver 2022

GOLD: Burdock and Co2702 Main Street

SILVER: Boulevard845 Burrard Street

BRONZE: AnnaLena1809 W 1st Ave


Burdock and Co

Chef Andrea Carlson has been promoting local, sustainably sourced ingredients since long before it was de rigueur—a feat that once again sees Burdock and Co take the top spot in this category. “Highly technical in the kitchen; delightful on the plate,” raved one judge. Her perpetually inventive menu—one Naramata-themed tasting menu featured rich burrata paired with black-pepper-pickled apricots, and heavenly ravioli with Naramata walnut and nasturtium pesto—comes paired with one of the city’s best natural wine lists. 


Boulevard’s superb take on seafood, under the steady hands of chefs Alex Chen and Roger Ma, earns them silver this year. “Passionately sourced ingredients at every level,” noted one judge—and, given this level of service, the early-week prix fixe is a particular steal.


Chef Adam Jordan’s detail-driven fare sees AnnaLena in the bronze spot. “While the food is serious, there’s always a sense of fun,” one judge said. The rotating, incredibly creative small-plates menu—along with a wicked cocktail selection—draws the crowds to this buzzy space. Honourable mention goes to Ubuntu Canteen for chef Dave Gunawan’s modern and inspired takes on classic dishes (think sake-steamed clams with summer squash and bonito butter).
