The concept of farm to table is nothing new and here in Vancouver, it's almost a prerequisite for a restaurant. After exploring these restaurants and seeing what's available for chefs, you'll see why so many local restaurants source regional ingredients. From seafood and meat to cheese and fresh produce, these restaurants are a great place to start on your farm to table journey.
Fable Restaurant's chef, Trevor Bird, knows where his ingredients come from and passionately creates delicious meals. From wild BC salmon and Salt Spring Island mussels to farm-fresh eggs and produce, diners can enjoy brunch, lunch and dinner here.
Just down the street from Fable is Mission. This farm to table restaurant switches things up by offering two different tasting menus (a four-course and six-course menu) that change all of the time. Don't be surprised to see different cuts of meat on the menu. These guys are big on sustainability and also promote nose to tail dining. Vegetarian? They've also got you covered with beautiful tasting menus.
When you're celebrating something special (or just feel like splurging), head to West Restaurant on Granville Street. They offer contemporary regional cuisine with an ever-changing menu. While the wine list is impressive, make sure to try a cocktail or two here. They're excellent!
