Gastown is Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, but one that has seen a lot of new growth over the last few years. It's here that you'll find one-of-a-kind boutiques, cozy cafes and some of the city's best restaurants.
Nicli Antica Pizzeria was the first to bring VPN certified pizza to Vancouver and continues to be a favorite amongst locals craving thin-crust, Neapolitan-style pizza. While pizzas are a must-order here, they also have salads and antipasto to start.
L'Abattoir Restaurant is excellent across the board. With a solid cocktail and wine program that's paired with wondrously creative dishes, diners are in good hands. The intimate ambiance and chic decor make this the perfect spot for your next date night.
If you're dining with a mix of vegetarians, vegans and carnivores, Nuba Restaurant is the best place to go. With something for everyone on their Lebanese menu, all will leave happy. Should you be in the mood to try a few different things (it's really the best way to eat here), order La Feast or Le Grand Feast–you'll be pleasantly satisfied and full.
After dinner, take a stroll around the cobblestone streets and make your way to your next haunt and grab a post-dinner drink.
