Lunch to go at Vancouver's Raincity Grill
One of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver, BC now offers lunches to go. Located on Denman across the street from English Bay, it's the perfect spot to pick up your picnic and head to the beach.
The Raincity Grill's take-out window is now open weekends only -- beginning June 1, 2007 it will dish out delicious food from 11 AM to 7PM daily.
Raincity Grill has also upped the green factor, using sugarcane fiber containers and aspen wood cutlery from Lumby, BC. Both are made from renewable resources.
For $9.95 you'll receive a sandwich, salad and a sweet treat. Among the tasty sandwich offerings are Oyama ham with Gruyere cheese and roasted eggplant and onion with hummus and bell pepper. Select from Caesar, potato or coleslaw salads.
Raincity Grill is located at 1193 Denman Street in Vancouver's West End, a great jumping off spot for visiting Stanley Park.
English Bay is a fun picnic spot
