Dine Out Vancouver is here! I love Dine Out because for or a reasonable price, one can taste the best a restaurant has to offer and enjoy a full 3 course meal. It’s also a great opportunity to try out a new restaurant that you’ve been eyeing, which is what we did this year! Rory and I went to Market by Jean-Georges at the Shanrgi-La hotel on West Georgia Street in Vancouver. I’ve always been very intrigued by this restaurant ever since we went for drinks at the hotel bar on Valentines day last year. We noticed the ambiance right off the bat and made a mental note to make sure to come back one night for dinner.
The Shangri-La is a 5 star luxurious hotel and to be honest, I was a little intimidated by that. This is what’s so great about the Dine Out festival because you’re able to have that gourmet experience for a reasonable price. So last night, Rory and I went for our first dinner of Dine Out Vancouver and oh man I’m so glad we chose Market by Jean-Georges. Hands down, it was one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a while. We found a new favourite restaurant and you can be sure we’ll be back again soon!
Our experience: The food was absolutely amazing. In fact, Rory said the sashimi appetizer was the best he’s EVER had. The service at the restaurant was also excellent and the portion sizes of each course were decent (sometimes fine dining restaurants have such small portions! Not here). Have you guys been to Market by Jean-Georges at the Shangri-La hotel? Will you guys be checking out any of the Dine Out Vancouver menus? Be sure to comment below! xoxo Candice
