Lift Bar and Grill – Coal Harbour View
Despite living in Vancouver for all of my life, I don’t get down to Coal Harbour very often. So when I had a chance to spend a sunny fall day downtown, I made sure to take a leisurely stroll around the neighbourhood.
Of course, all of the walking will eventually make you hungry and I wound up meeting my sweetie for lunch at Lift Bar and Grill on the corner of the Coal Harbour Seawalk. From here, you’ve got a great view of Stanley Park and the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.
It wasn’t very busy during our weekday lunch so we were able to enjoy our Six Iron Ginger Ale with lime and apple juices mixed with agave syrup.
We decided to start off with the Salt Spring Island Mussels ($17) with garlic, bacon, and leek in a white wine cream. The mussels ranged from small to medium size but they were good. I especially liked the bits of bacon in the broth and how the garlic bread sopped up the broth.
The Seafood Tacos ($16) arrived with a bountiful amount of halibut, prawns, coleslaw, and tomato salsa… they were literally overflowing and hard to pick up without making a mess. I really liked the sweet Valentina hot sauce that they gave us to finish off the tacos.
Meanwhile, I was a bit worried that ordering pasta would be too heavy but I shouldn’t have been. The Seafood Farfalle Pasta ($19) with prawns, clams, garlic, zucchini, onion, red pepper, white wine, olive oil, and chopped herbs resulted in a very light tasting sauce (but filling).
Overall, I was quite pleased by the food and the views here.
