4 Course Restaurant Crawl on Stephen Avenue

There are so many good restaurant choices downtown you shouldn’t have to pick just one

Warm up at the end of the evening with an order (or two) of churros from Local on 8th.

If you work downtown, avoid rush hour traffic by taking yourself (and a date) on a nice little dine-around down Stephen Avenue. Good food and no traffic for the drive home after? Sounds good to us!

1st course: Tempura Green Beans at Divino

You can never go wrong with a classic. The tempura green beans at Divino are listed as a side dish on the menu, but they also make for a great (and crunchy!) snack to kick off your evening with.

2nd Course: Corn and Shrimp Agnolotti at Catch

Slip upstairs to Catch’s more intimate upstairs dining room and share bites of this rich little pasta dish made with foie gras, corn and shrimp with some spicy, smoky chorizo to balance things out.

3rd Course: Braised Beef Short Ribs at Blink

Fall temperatures make us appreciate braising a whole lot more, so find some comfort in this meaty main course served up with foraged B.C. mushrooms, cippolini onions and roast potatoes. And finding the perfect wine to go with this rich course not be a problem as Blink’s wine list is perfectly suited to the menu.

4th Course: Churros at Local on 8th

Churros done well taste like a soft, pillowy cloud of cinnamon sugary goodness. Dip these into the accompanying warm hazelnut hot chocolate and everything will be alright in the world. And they’re only $4.50/order, so you may as well get two.
