The dining room at this global-fusion restaurant is a stunner: downstairs, 40-foot ceilings soar above booths and tables; upstairs, diners pretend they’re sultans as they lounge on pillows around gauzy-draped tables.

Chef Bill Jones is a passionate forager, and wild mushrooms are often the highlight of his tasting menus, served in his cozy farmhouse.

It may be a little contrarian to recommend the Main, a 35-year-old smoked-meat lunch counter on Saint-Laurent, over the more legendary Schwartz’s just across the street. But that’s the point.

One part restaurant, one part late-night bar, Garde Manger offers innovative seafood and a seat at the hottest party in town.

Chef/owner Giuseppe “Pino” Posteraro serves Mediterranean cuisine at Cioppino’s and its sister restaurant next door, Enoteca. Two large patios allow diners to watch Yaletown passerbys, while foodies sidle up to the two open show kitchens.

Réservoir's large arched windows open in summer and its second-floor terrace overlooks raised-bed gardens and iron lampposts along cobbled Duluth Avenue. Bare wooden tables and beer vats fill the brasserie-style brewpub.

At this cozy sanctuary of candlelight and stained glass, you can canoodle over ginger-glazed duck breast or herb-crusted local halibut.
