Raincity Grill information
This venerable English Bay eatery was sourcing unique BC ingredients long before the fashion for Fanny Bay oysters took hold. A great showcase for West Coast cuisine, the weekend brunch is a neighborhood legend (Dungeness crab omelet recommended). But the early-bird (before 6pm) tasting dinner is a bargain: for $30 you'll have three superb courses – add $20 for wine pairing.
Once you're done, take a romantic evening stroll along English Bay beach. Next day, consider dropping by the restaurant's take-out window: it's a great place to pick-up quality fish and chips ($12) for an impromptu beach picnic.
