Gudrun Tasting Room3500 Moncton Street, #150, Richmond
Gudrun adds cool chic to historic fishing village
Submitted Tuesday, November 25, 2008 - 1:20pm [Dine in]

This new room offers a unique alternative to the standard fish n chips fare that will likely always dominate Steveston. It is a little hard to find, as it is tucked inside a courtyard, but this is one part of its charm. Good selection of cheese friendly beer and wines. Think Gastown's Salt (ie, blackboard with daily cheeses & charcuterie + paninis + greens), but with more funk in its design and, well, its in Steveston. Too bad they don't offer wine flite's.

Alibi Room157 Alexander St, Vancouver
new and improved Alibi not to be overlooked
Submitted Friday, June 13, 2008 - 1:03pm [Dine in]

There is not much more to add that the last reviewer didn't already say. I agree fully that this already satisfactory resto/lounge/bar has only gotten better since staff took over ownership of this place not long ago. The kitchen, bar, and aesthetics have all improved noticeably over the past year. With the recent flurry of new restaurant openings in Gastown, it would be ashame if the new Alibi Room was overlooked.

Gastown is where it's at.
Submitted Sunday, May 18, 2008 - 4:54am [Dine in]

Three of us dined here for the first time on a sunny wednesday evening. Like most patio-less restaurants in Gastown, the place was almost empty. This kept me worried as I had just read some of the posts below claiming that, despite the setting, you leave paying a lot for very little. We paid $95 before gratuity for 4 mojitos, 4 appys, and two hefty mains. The plan was to also have desert, but we were too full. I was pleasantly surprised that either the owners rectified the price-portion complaint, because it wasn't an issue my visit. We liked it a lot.
Favorites: Mint Tea Mojito, Braised Short Ribs over Saffron Cous Cous.
The Gastown dining scene is on a tear!

Salt Tasting Room45 Blood Alley, Vancouver
great (and different) every time
Submitted Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 11:11pm [Dine in]

I have to disagree with the last two postings. Salt is great and different everytime I visit. For certain, the food menu may lack breadth, but if you like artisan cheese and locally sourced meats (like I do), there are so many delicious options to choose from and the list appears to change constantly (an indication of small-batch production). The wine list too has been completely different my last three visits. I have not sat in the new cellar downstairs, but I have had a peek and it is one of the city's best kept secrets. Kudos to Salt, the supremely knowledgeable and handsome servers, and to the seedy Blood Alley for filtering out those diners who would rather a more traditional experience. Fair enough.
