Yaletown BIA Reveals Participating Restaurants for Taste of Yaletown 2017

The Yaletown Business Improvement Association (YBIA) is proud to announce the 13th annual Taste of Yaletown (TOY), a popular community-based event that invites the public to try a variety of dishes from 26 premier restaurants throughout the neighbourhood. From October 11 to 27th, Vancouver’s top chefs will feature special 3-course meals themed around ‘pairings and sharings’. Restaurants will offer exclusive featured menus, innovative pairings, and special menus with set prices of $25, $35, and $45.

Continuing with last year’s success, the chefs will offer the same approach of communal dining experience with sharing plates and pairing options. As Yaletown continues to be a premier dining hub, there are many longstanding restaurants who continue be a part of Taste of Yaletown year-after-year. Brix and Mortar, The Keg Steakhouse and Bar, Bistro Sakana, Hurricane Grill and WildTale Coastal Grill are among some of the many returning restaurants who offer delectable tastes and a fresh array of dishes. 


In addition to those returning, new restaurants have also joined the event completing the overall experience and adding extra twists. From spicy yet zesty tastes of a North Pacific Mexican restaurant, social atmospheres with signatures cocktails, to a nouveau Canadian Bistro – the two-week dining event has new flavours that everyone will enjoy. 

With 26 Yaletown restaurants offering special menus and pairings for a limited time, Taste of Yaletown is the perfect time to celebrate and savor Vancouver’s best dining district, try new restaurants, revel in the longstanding classics and pre-book reservations for holiday parties. 

As a longstanding community event, Taste of Yaletown continues to bring people together by experiencing exquisite culinary options. The sharing and pairing menu was a huge success last year as it perfectly connects people together to enjoy a meal together and showcases our local chefs talents, and we’re excited to have the community come out and try Vancouver best restaurants.
— states Annette O’Shea Executive Director of the Yaletown Business Improvement Association.

The Yaletown Business Improvement Association is dedicated to supporting business in the neighbourhood, but also committed to giving back to the community.  For the 13th year in a row, Yaletown will be making a donation to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Taste of Yaletown has raised over $115,000 in efforts to support the local community since the event began in 2004.
