Vancouver Buzz: 5 Food Things To Do in Vancouver This Week

It’s summer time and the city is full of life, the sun is out (more often than not) and ice cream spots have lines out the door. It’s the perfect time for new shop like Mister Artisan Ice Cream to open up.  Mister uses ingredients sourced from local farmers and adds a little magic in the form of liquid nitrogen to create the creamiest ice cream. Flavours are seasonal and will rotate based on demand but include Creme Brulée complete with the caramelized sugar top. 1141 Mainland St, Vancouver. Website

Roof Garten is Vancouver’s most unique and trendy spot at the moment but not built to last, it is a pop-up restaurant and only open until November. What that means? You need to get there while you still can! The space is bright and sunny on a good day, but also covered to make it work in our special Vancouver weather. Chef Zuzana Harsaghy provides high quality plates that are approachable and affordable in an atmosphere that is comfortably luxurious. I mean really! They have a Veuve Clicquot champagne lounge, how cool is that! roofgarten.com. 670 Smithe St Vancouver. Website

Hawksworth’s second restaurant Nightingale, opened in May and provides a more casual fine dining option. The name comes from one of Aesop’s fables reminding us to appreciate the here and now, with a vibrant atmosphere and attentive staff makes this very easy to do. The menu has so many great choices that it makes it hard to choose but because of that you can’t make a wrong choice. Just more reason to keep coming back! 1017 W. Hastings St, Vancouver. Website

Sitting at the bar at you feel like you could be sitting in a farmhouse and expect to see field of wheat or corn instead of the city out the front door. As one of Canada’s top restaurants, Farmer’s Apprentice is offering a new 4 course set menu at $40.00 to diners arriving before 6:30. The menu is full of Canadian, organic and sustainable ingredients, which are posted on a chalk board for everyone to see. Optional wine pairings and an additional cheese course are available to make your evening complete. 1535 West 6th Ave, Vancouver. Website

French patisserie Ladurée Paris founded in 1862 opened in Vancouver in March of 2016. Canada’s first location produces delicate French macarons and includes an elegant tea room that feels like stepping into a scene from 2006’s film of Marie Antoinette. Ladurée has recently released a new collection of three gift boxes in collaboration with Australian artist and fashion illustrator Kerrie Hess, whose artwork has been featured in Vogue. Each box holds 8 pieces ($32.00) and one box will go quickly so you might want to buy two or all three. 1141 Robson St, Vancouver. Website
