Travel-inspired menus that will transport you out of Vancouver

Feb 12 2021, 11:53 am

To make sure we’re doing our part during the pandemic, we are staying put and putting all our glamorous international travel plans on hold this year.

While we can’t overstuff our suitcases with sunscreen, chargers, and piles of clothes we won’t wear, we can indulge in a little travelling when it comes to our tastebuds, and thank goodness for that.

Some top-notch restaurants in Vancouver have crafted special regionally inspired menus so patrons and sit down, unmask, and enjoy an array of flavours signature to a faraway place.

We can’t see it, but we’ll be able to taste it, and that’s good enough for us at the moment. Here are some must-try Vancouver menus that will transport you to another country.

St. Lawrence Restaurant

St Lawrence

St Lawrence’s Lyon Menu

This Québécois hotspot’s new dinner series is inspired by French regional cuisine. This series debuts this March and takes patrons on a tour of the most celebrated culinary regions of France. You can buy tickets for dine-in and take-home ahead of time…while they’re still available, that is!

Address: 269 Powell Street, Vancouver
Phone: 604-620-3800


Hawksworth Restaurant

Hawksworth’s weekly Destination Wine Dinners are the ultimate way to escape via a quality meal. The themed dinners bring flavours from all over the world and pair them with some exceptional sips of wine. The region of inspiration changes regularly, so you can take a few trips courtesy of Hawksworth if you indulge in this dinner more than once.
