|An interesting piece of décor that fits the weather outside|
This year, Greeny and I started out our 1st Dine Out at the "Water St. Café" along with Lun and Yogi. Never heard of it? Perhaps you have passed by it so many times without realizing. Located right across from the Gastown Steam Clock, the restaurant has been there for more than 20 years! The interior was mostly black tone with quite a bit of historical feel to it. Given it was the 1st day of Dine Out Vancouver, it was a pretty busy night for sure.I never knew the place has a second floor to it until we sat nearby the staircase. The location definitely gave it an advantage on the view of steam clock. No more waiting in the cold just to wait for the steam clock action. If you're lucky, the steam clock is just right in front of you. I bet the view in the morning would be even better.
|Complimentary Bread - n/a|
|Fanny Bay Oysters - 4.5/6|
|Sunshine Coast Seafood and Corn Chowder - 5/6|
|Potato Gnocchi - 3.5/6|
|Duck Confit - 5/6|
|Tiramisu - 2.5/6|
|New York Style Baked Cheesecake - 4.5/6|
Overall - I thought the food and its execution were quite solid. Although I wasn't very pleased with the tiramisu, it didn't take away the experience we have. It's a place I would go back again if I'm around there and looking for food. Come to think of it, it's probably a pretty good place to have brunch on a bright sunny summer day. =)Out of the Dine Out menu ($28), I was having hard time deciding what to order. And that's the beauty of dining out with people I'm close with - I got to share food and try out different things.
