Subject: Re: Christmas Dining in Vancouver
Hello Paul,

In Thursdays Vancouver Sun, there was a column recommending six restaurants for Christmas dinner, five of them accessible from Robson Street (the sixth is in Ladner).

They are: the Elixir, 322 Davie, 604-642-0557, regular and Christmas menu available, at $35 per person;

Chartwell and garden Terrace at the Four Seasons Hotel, 741 West Georgia, 604-69-9333, which offers a five course dinner or buffet, from $70 to $95 pp, children less than half that;

Diva at the Met, 645 Howe, 604-687-1122, five course dinner $95 pp, children half price;

Showcase, 1122 West Hasting, 604-639-4040, 3 course menu $45 pp;

Cafe de Paris, 751 Denman, 604-687-1418, a la carte or 4 course set menu $50 pp.

Unfortunately, I haven't eaten at any of these restaurants, but have read good reviews of Diva, Chartwell, and Cafe de Paris. The reviews of Diva especially have been outstanding; when I have something very special to celebrate, it will be my destination.

Hope you have a lovely time in our beautiful city!

All the best, Terry in West Vancouver, B.C.
