Vancouver Fish Company – Granville Island

Vancouver Fish Company is a restaurant located near the front of Granville Island that opened up about a year ago in the former spot of Whet Kitchen. On the inside, it doesn’t look like they’ve done much redecorating as it has the same vibe of wood tables and black booths.

Supermarine (Dine Out 2016)

Supermarine is a newish restaurant that opened up in the former location of Abigail’s Party in Kits. There’s still remnants of Abigail’s in this tiny restaurant (sister restaurant to Wildebeest) as can be seen in the names of some of the cocktails as well as the name that appears on the bill that you receive at the end of your meal.

Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar – Crispy Sticky Chicken Wings

When I first heard that they closed Fleuri at the Sutton Place Hotel, I thought… “Oh no! No more chocolate buffet!”. Truth be told, it’s been well over a decade since I last visited and tried their chocolate buffet. So perhaps it’s a good thing that they tried to reinvent the place – there’s just so much chocolate that one person can eat.

The Flying Pig (Olympic Village) – Brunch Time

Let me just say that, if I ever see an actual flying pig, I’m sure that I’d run the other direction. It’s kind of scary if you think about it. Fortunately, the only flying pigs around here are the 3 locations of The Flying Pig restaurant.

The Flying Pig (Gastown) – Bone Marrow Cheezy Bread

Although it’s been over a year and a half since our visit to The Flying Pig’s Yaletown location, my lunch-time visit to their Gastown location was not due to planning but mere happenstance.

If you’re looking to do Afternoon Tea in Stanley Park, where should you go? Your first guess would probably be at The Teahouse in Stanley Park… actually, I’m not even sure if they do Afternoon Tea at The Teahouse. No, this post is on Afternoon Tea at the Fish House in Stanley Park.
