Start your 2013 Dine Out Vancouver Festival story with “Plated & Paired at the Public Market” – a rare, after-hours opportunity to taste the best of Granville Island, paired with BC VQA wines.

This event sold out fast in 2012 and it’s obvious why! Guests will enjoy the unique atmosphere of the Market with tantalizing tastes created by Granville Island’s talented chefs, exceptional BC VQA wines and live jazz.

From the Public Market, taste the finest and freshest seafood, pastries, breads, and all the comfort foods you desire to sample with wines from British Columbia. Chefs and owners from Benton Brothers Fine Cheese, Curry 2 U, Dussa’s Ham & Cheese, Granville Island Tea Company, L’Épicerie, Rotisserrie and Gourmande, La Baguette & L’Echalote, Laurelle’s Fine Foods, Non’s Drinks, The Salmon Shop, South China Seas, The Stock Market and Terra Breads will proudly share flavours straight from their countertops and kitchens.

Plus! Join the chefs of Granville Island’s top restaurants for tasty bites from:

  • Bridges Restaurant
  • Edible Canada at the Market
  • The Keg on Granville Island
  • Sandbar Seafood Restaurant
  • Whet kitchen-bar-patio

Finally, complement and enhance your exclusive evening sampling BC VQA wines from more than 30 BC wineries pouring their best for you!

It’s for one-night only and tickets are sold out, so this is your only chance to attend!
