Here on the North Shore we’re lucky to have an array of culinary options representing cultures from around the globe. Whether you are craving French, Japanese, Greek or Italian, casual or high-end, you’ll find an eatery on this side of the Burrard Inlet to suit you.
The North Shore boasts its share of well-respected chain establishments serving tried-and-true dishes and drinks, but it’s also home to many independent family-run restaurants that have been in operation for decades. These eateries have been serving generations of family over the years and are often filled with regular guests, but new customers are always welcome.
Along with these stalwarts come a slew of new culinary offerings in such neighbourhoods as Lower Lonsdale and Ambleside which are currently undergoing exciting growth and development.
Whether dining out is an everyday occurrence or only something you only do on a special occasion, you want to know that the restaurant you’re spending your dollars on and your valuable time patronizing is going to offer a scrumptious meal, excellent customer service and a pleasing ambiance.
But how does one choose where to dine for a family brunch? How about a first date, a celebratory family dinner, a breakfast meeting or a post-hike snack?
You could ask a friend, co-worker or family member for a recommendation but it’s always good to have an expert opinion. That’s where the North Shore News’ International Dining Stars marketplace hub comes in.
We’ve taken the time to survey the culinary scene and curate a list of some of the North Shore’s top dining spots here http://northshore.starlocal.ca/international-dining/
Whether you’re looking for the perfect crepe in Ambleside, tacos or Schezuan in North Van, donuts in Deep Cove or piping hot Pho in Dundarave, we have a recommendation for you.
