Catherine's Favourite Restaurants
Bin 941/942 - Chef/owner Gord Martin is crazy like a fox with two of the absolute best tapas restaurants in town that are anything but boring. Look for us all in the background of his newest food TV show - The Delinquent Chef.
Joe Fortes Seafood and Chop House - It's cuddles and kisses for everyone at Fortes, especially Bud Kanke and Frenchy, and where you always feel like a celebrity and your every need is catered to personally. See you on the patio.
Blue Water Cafe and Raw Bar - Restauranteur Jack Evrensel and his Top Table group are absolutely wonderful, and Blue Water's sushi chef Yoshi creates some of the most beautiful seafood in town. Some great celebrity sightings here too.
Dundarave Fish Market - I'd eat lunch here every day if I could. Don't let the "market" part fool you - thsi is one of the trendiest little bistros in West Vancouver and I simply adore chefs Corbin and Sean and owners Kim and Frank. Guess the secret is out.
Beach House at Dundarave Pier - Hats off to the gang at the beach house where the cruise ships sail by the patio nightly. And behind the bar, Phil always ensures they stock my favourite sauvignon blanc from New Zealand.
Lounging Around with Cocktails
Lift - You just can't beat this location, especially in the summertime. This is where we met with Richard Branson for the Virgin Mega launch. I only wish they carried more of my Marlborough white wine favourites.
George and Brix - Handsome David Hannay and Patrick Mercer really know how to keep guests happy in Yaletown at both their Brix restaurant (that features that awesomely cool year-round courtyard) and at their ultra trendy George lounge where Jimmy G., Lisa R., Gina Y. and I always have way too much fun.
Opus Bar and Hotel - Grab one of the great loungy sofas here and sip on $15 dollar martinis with celebs - or people who look like celebs.
