Taste of Yaletown 2013

It’s good to see the Yaletown restaurant scene evolving again with additions of great spots that offer unique quality food. Since I live and work in the neighborhood, I’ve had the opportunity to check out some of these new places and they are becoming my go-tos if I prefer a convenient jaunt down the block for  a good decent bite.

There’s the classic delicious French cuisine with a nod to West Coast ingredients at Cache Bistro

Or thoughtful European inspired dishes turned on its head at Good Wolfe Kitchen Bar

Or perhaps some simple artisan pizzas at The Parlour

Taste of Yaletown is fast approaching and it’s a good opportunity for you to check out some of these still under the radar gems. The 9th annual Taste of Yaletown (TOY) will run from October 16 – 27th, 2013, with 30 participating restaurants.

Here’s a quick low down of what to expect:
- event will move away from limited 3-course menus and chefs can now offer any menu combination at set prices of $25, $35 and $45.
- expect to see a diverse and exciting offering, with specific emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients as a result of this change.
- will include lunchtime menu offerings alongside the traditional dinner.

The addition of lunch will be supported and promoted through a unique, free trolley service to Yaletown for the public. I’ll have a chance this week to rub shoulders with media and fellow bloggers and check out this trolley lunch service. Of course I’ll report back with tweets, instagram pictures, and a quick low down.
