Bridges is the House of Switzerland during the Olympics. It’s going to be a party in B.C. Canada! The regular menu will be combined with traditional Swiss dishes. They’ll be hosting numerous events and you’ll be able to catch television broadcasts of the Olympic competitions and feats there, too. Plus, it’s on Granville Island.
Another Granville fave is Go Fish! It’s actually right on the docks as you walk from Granville Island toward the Burrard Street Bridge. They get the freshest fish because they buy it right off the boats, parked alongside the dockside location. There’s nearly always a line, especially on clear sky days. It’s always well worth the wait. And if the tiny tables are filled up, most people just sit on the seawall and watch the boats go by. This one’s a gem for all of us locavores, especially we who love seafood!
Of course, not to be missed by any account, is the Granville Island fresh local market. It is Foodie Heaven. No, wait. It is Foodie Nirvana. No, wait. It is a locavore Foodie’s heavenly nirvana! Schedule some time to linger over all the fresh, delicious and colorful choices. Bring your appetite and be prepared to graze!
