Dine Out Vancouver 2021
This year’s event is a great opportunity for foodies to try more restaurants than ever (over 350+ in fact) and show their support and love for local eateries.
Rather than fixed-price menus, participating restaurants will offer menus in different price ranges to allow you more flexibility.
You can enjoy dine-in menus, takeout options and special offers. Make it a staycation by staying at a participating hotel partner with their special Dine Out Vancouver deals.

New Restaurant Opening: Hello Nori
Robson Street is welcoming a new sushi-focused Japanese restaurant, Hello Nori.
The eatery is set to open on February 8 at 1165 Robson Street (between Bute and Thurlow).
The concept of Hello Nori is about the experience of enjoying a hand roll: a combination of fresh seafood, meticulously selected seaweed, and signature warm rice, prepared to order in front of guests’ eyes at an inviting 24-seat U-shaped bar.
Wrapped around the likes of Hokkaido scallop, toro, yellowtail, and truffle lobster, there are 13 hand rolls in all, available à la carte or as part of set menus of four, five, and six rolls.
New Restaurant Opening: Slim's BBQ
Opening February 1 at 2301 Main Street, Slim's BBQ serves up authentic Austin-style barbecue, approachable classic cocktails, and craft beer.
Slim's BBQ will be offering build-your-own barbecue platters with classic smoked brisket, pork butt, hot links, and ribs dished up with sides of buttermilk biscuits, smoked brisket beans, and serrano-cheese spinach.
Slim’s menu will also feature a slate of delicious fried chicken, pulled pork, smoked meat, and po’ boy sammies along with vegetarian options of chili, burgers, and mac ‘n cheese.
