The best restaurants in Vancouver for a date night, birthday dinner or special occassion.
In 2022, Boulevard, Published and St. Lawrence were our top three, though in a very different order. All of which is to say: we’re a lucky bunch of diners here in Vancouver. Any would make the perfect spot for celebrating a promotion, proposing to your boyfriend or secretly eating the best solo meal of your life while your partner is at home with the kids.
It’s Boulevard that rose to the top this year. Though the room inexplicably missed a Michelin star, perhaps that just fuelled chefs Roger Ma and Alex Chen to wow our judges with jaw-dropping dishes like soy-sake-glazed, charcoal-grilled sablefish and 50-oz bone-in tomahawk steaks. Maybe it’s a flex, but it’s a delicious one.
