The Yaletown festival runs from October 16 to 30 and highlights 25 restaurants in the upscale False Creek area. While reservations aren’t necessary at some places, they are highly recommended at others, so the sooner you solidify your plans the better.
Although fixed-price menus of $25, $35, and $45 make up the festival’s foundation, there’s a lot of flexibility within them. Restaurants don’t necessarily follow the appetizer-main course-dessert format: they’re free to create any food and drink combo, or customize the experience with a special event. This is great for people who, for example, don’t really do dessert or are looking for a lighter lunch rather than a formal dinner.
