Lap up today’s Groupon in moderate proportions: for $20, you get $40 worth of gourmet cuisine and wine at Divino Wine Bar.

Chosen by Vancouver magazine as serving one of the city’s 10 Best Meals, Divino delights palates with discriminately chosen wines and a commitment to fresh, high-quality ingredients. Chef Cameron Picyk brings an Italian sensibility to Divino’s menu of Pacific Northwest cuisine after plying his skills in Australia and Europe. Lighter bites include olives marinated in a house blend of lemon zest and garden-fresh thyme ($6) and wild elk carpaccio, served with wild celery, pine nuts, and pecorino cheese ($14). Mains showcase choice meats, such as roasted beef strip loin nestled with confit fingerlings and morel mushroom jus ($28). Dessert selections unveil such creative plates as mixed berry compote with mascarpone mousse ($7).

The 34-seat indoor dining space and 32-seat patio invite oenophiles to chat about investing in an online farm while sampling the wines chosen by sommelier Sam Jonnery, who happily recommends pairings as well. The extensive list surveys varietals from around the world, such as the 2008 Veramonte pinot-noir reserva from Chile ($11/glass, $33/split) and the 2008 Flying Kiwi sauvignon blanc from New Zealand ($9/glass, $30/split).

“Excellent service and ambiance”; “Great Food, AMAZING Value”; “Perfect location, incredible experience.” These are just some of the reviews Eh! Restaurant has come across in its leap to the top of the casual lunch & dinner scene. It’s all about Freshness, Flavour, Affordability and Sustainability. It begins with their sourcing practices: purchasing a large percentage of products locally (within 100 miles), using compostable takeout containers and cutlery, working with green cleaning products, and composting food waste which in turn is used for growing fresh organic produce in their (not-so) top-secret roof garden. All this is an effort to be environmentally friendly, to show responsibility, and to set a good example for the community in which we all work. Eh! prides itself on providing local food with an international flavour, to satisfy even the most discerning taste buds, all at an incredibly (seriously) low price! Try everything, from stunning “Appies” (like the Mexican Pozole “Soup,” which you REALLY have to taste), to delightful salads, to sumptuous burgers, sandwiches, and main courses. Try the legendary “Ultimate Eh!” burger, or a tempting steak and mushroom wrap, or even a grilled sockeye salmon (with its signature skin crust) or yellow fin tuna. Order the infamous rice and beans plate, complete with farofa and fried breaded bananas! And don’t forget to come by for Friday Steaks! Eh! employs a unique staff of dedicated international students, to add to the worldly environment of your dining experience. It’s worth every penny and every bite – give it a try and you’ll be back in no time!

Don’t let your stomach rumble in vain. Grab your friends and see what all the “Eh!” is about!

Hub robustly feeds the masses with creative takes on classic cuisine dished in a comfort-driven setting.

As a fitting feast topper, the chocolate-chip Pazookie ($8) reigns supreme on the dessert menu and in customers’ most meaningful life memories with its crumbly cookie throne crowned with vanilla gelato.

Sports fanatics can keep tabs on hockey games, soccer matches, or the national rug-shampooing championships on one of the lounge’s many HD televisions. With Rogers Arena just a puck’s toss away, the exposed brick walls and serene lighting of Hub cast a welcoming glow to fans and foodies alike.

Nu Restaurant’s seasonal menus pamper palates with inventive, Mediterranean-inspired dishes derived from locally sourced ingredients. Nu’s lauded team of sharpshooting chefs crafts four courses of light eats for a lunch menu kicking off with a flavourful buckshot of close-range greek-salad shooters. Albacore-tuna tartare floats in with fried capers in lemon sauce, and roasted chicken lounges regally on a throne of orzo-stuffed peppers topped with roasted-tomato sauce and feta. The taste-bud-courting procession finishes with chocolate mousse bedecked with caramelized milk and greek cookies. Guests dine in two levels of comfortably chic dining space adorned with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing the illuminations of the West Coast sunset. An outdoor seating area is also available for sharing the atmosphere with a friend, date, or conjoined twin once removed.
