Steak, fish, chicken and yes, even the pizza is decadent.
Dine Out Vancouver is currently enduring its 20th annual festival across the region as restaurants are providing discounted offers to patrons to celebrate hundreds of local chefs and their multicultural cuisine, while also supporting the hospitality industry.
It's seemingly perfect for local residents looking for a night out with the family or significant other as seven establishments in Coquitlam and Port Moody have joined this year's festival.
The participating restaurants from the Tri-Cities are as follows (in alphabetical order), each with its own customized menu for the festival:
Current public health orders amid COVID-19 and the Omicron variant are only allowing six people per table in restaurants that serve food and liquor, and guests must also present their B.C. vaccine card upon entry.
Patrons are also not allowed to mingle between tables as part of efforts to reduce the spread of the virus.
Destination Vancouver spokesperson Sabrina Tey explains the Dine Out festival is keeping safety top of mind for participants.
"All dining experiences have been designed to maximize enjoyment and minimize risk, by following all public health orders and guidance."
"Dine Out Vancouver Festival is about community, collaboration, and sharing [Metro] Vancouver’s culinary story with the world," organizers add in the event's 20th anniversary description.
"Along with the Wines of British Columbia, and a host of other Community Partners, Destination Vancouver is proud to continue to showcase [Metro] Vancouver’s culinary talent as well as the many different culinary and cultural experiences that only a city like ours can offer."
The festival is in place until Jan. 31.
