When you’re done shopping, you’ll want to check out some of Vancouver’s fabulous dining choices. During his recent visit — which included a stay at the Coast Coal Harbour —, Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi dined at new hot spot Wildebeest and was impressed.

Brijbassi writes: “While the restaurant’s name may make you think it’s about game meats and charcuterie, that’s not the case. Initially rumoured to be Vancouver’s answer to the Black Hoof in Toronto and Animal in Los Angeles, Wildebeest has an earthiness and surprising lightness to its dishes.” Read the rest of the articled headlined “Vancouver Gets Wild with Wildebeest.”
