// Vancouver Eats

Our fair city, Vancouver BC, is in the midst of hosting the 2010 winter Olympics. While we're trilled to be here in Croatia, a part of us wishes we were home to celebrate, take in some of the Olympic festivities... and eat at our favorite restaurants that we miss dearly!

If you happen to be in Vancouver for the Olympics (or anytime, really!) here are our top three places to eat/drink in Vancouver...

You can't beat the Black Frog pub in Gastown for casual drinks/eats with friends. Not only do they have impeccable musical taste (seriously... where else can you hear Black Mountain, Andrew Bird and Smog within seven minutes), but the drinks & food are cheap, the staff are great and the crowd is diverse. I'm a sucker for their grilled cheese & a pint of the local lager. ($)

For sushi, venture West to The Eatery for a less traditional dining experience. Eclectic music & decor, hipster waitresses, university crowd... and sushi that makes all that worthwhile. Try the Bob Marley roll, full of avocado, mango and tuna, topped with a cucumber wasabi paste. ($$)

M & my all time favorite place to indulge gastronomically in Vancouver is BIN 942 tapas bar. Heavenly tapas made with fresh local ingredients, lots of wine by the glass (so you can try a few!) and a cozy, but loud, atmosphere. Try the Garlic Butter Mussels and Beef Tenderloin Wellington. Go early to avoid waiting in a looong line. ($$$)
