No matter if you're a local or visiting from afar, Tuc Craft Kitchen’s elegant, rustic fare aims to make it feel like you're dining with friends and family. Try the ever-popular Crispy Chicken & Waffles made with free run chicken breast, savoury waffles, maple syrup, and chilli ginger sauce or the signature Spam & Eggs with Tuc 'Spam', poached eggs, fried green tomatoes and pickled onions with a Parmesan cheese and bacon biscuit. If you want to treat yourself make sure to pair your breakfast with Tuc's classic mimosa, unique signature avocado margarita, or the Loose Mousse with ginger cookie crust, lime custard, and coconut. Tuck in (pun intended) on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 60 West Cordova Street.
Opened in early 2018, Coquille Fine Seafood offers a sophisticated spin on the classic fish house in Vancouver's historic Gastown neighbourhood. Taste the best of what Vancouver’s land and sea have to offer with Coquille’s hot and cold plates, salads, sandwiches and crudos, seafood platters, and freshly shucked oysters from the East and West Coast. Indulge in favourites like the spicy marinated octopus with 'nduja and parsley on sourdough or the Fritto Misto, a tasty mix of fried seafood, fennel, and aioli. Top it all off with a delicious chocolate and olive oil cake with whipped mascarpone mousse and partner with local craft beer, house-made cocktails, or local and international wines. Visit this fresh catch at 181 Carrall Street.
At Silk Lounge, a new delicious Indian and French lounge and restaurant just steps away from Gastown's iconic Steamclock, all dishes are created from scratch in-house with an emphasis on local and organic ingredients with no added sugar or preservatives. Dig into Silk's Butter Chicken Pasta, made with chicken tikka and a traditional creamy tomato butter chicken base with house-made fettuccine (their semolina is grain milled in house!). Other highlights include locally sourced Tandoori Halibut and vegan and gluten-free friendly dishes like Ratatouille or Jalapenos stuffed with cashews, walnuts, spinach, and Guajillo peppers with a house made Rancttera sauce. Treat your taste buds at 132 Powell Street.
