Taste of Yaletown 2014: Two weeks of special menus in one neighbourhood (Contest)

Comments
GWKB-TOY2014-entree

Now in its 10th year, the Taste of Yaletown festival will have two weeks of special menus and tastings at several restaurants in the neighbourhood.

Between October 16 and 30, over two dozen participating restaurants will have fixed price menus of $25, $35 and $45, including special tastings and pairings to showcase the best of what their chefs and kitchens are creating.

Taste of Yaletown is a great opportunity for diners to explore the area’s restaurants at a great value, and get re-acquainted with an old favourite or discover a new go-to spot.

Restaurants participating in Taste of Yaletown range from approachable innovators like Good Wolf Kitchen & Bar, along with the creative Japanese cuisine of Minami, and the laid-back bar-centric selections at Yaletown Brewing Company and much more in between.

Diners are encouraged to plan their Taste of Yaletown adventures ahead by checking out all of the participating restaurants’ menus online, and reservations are always encouraged at most establishments.

As a delicious bonus, a portion of profits from each meal served during Taste of Yaletown is donated to The Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Since the event began, Taste of Yaletown has raised over $100,000 in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
