The 2010 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards have been ... awarded!

A panel of 19 experts judged restaurants in and around Vancouver, including both established rooms and upstarts "that have made a virtue of the new economy."

Here are the top (gold) winners in each category; you'll find a complete list of the silver, bronze and honorable mentions in the first link above. I've included a * by the ones I've experienced; looks like I need to keep on dining around BC. Bon Appetit!
