Is There a Distinctly “Vancouver” Watch?
Got beef? These top steakhouses do.
This year’s grill master is Elisa: the Yaletown steakhouse takes the gold. Elisa’s contemporary take on traditional steakhouse dining brings the focus to regional cuts and styles and consistent delivery of top-quality food, wine and cocktails. And it’s more than steak love—as one judge noted, “I swoon for Franco Michienzi’s wine program and harbour a pretty intense passion for that truffle-roasted chicken.” (And psst: Michienzi is also our 2023 Sommelier of the Year—read more about him here).
