The sun is out and Kitsilano is buzzing. We love this time of year, and try to get out as often as possible to enjoy the patios, rooms and food the Kits restaurant scene has to offer. Here’s a quick list of some of our favourite restaurants..

● Dark Table: http://www.darktable.ca/about.html
Upon arrival, take your time and choose from a first class menu rivalling some of Vancouver’s best restaurants. When you’re ready, you’ll be led to your table in the dark dining room by a blind, or visually impaired server who has been trained to ensure your comfort at all times, and will eat in the dark! It’s a cool experience and you get a great meal out of it too.
● Nook: http://nookrestaurant.ca/
By far some of the best Italian food in the city! This restaurant not only has a fantastic atmosphere but the big windows opening onto the street give this place a cool vibe. They don’t take reservations, so plan on waiting if you’re going on a nice day.
● Local Public Eatery: http://localkits.com/
Classic pub food a block from the beach! Cozy up inside during the winter months with their delicious comfort food or check out their booming outdoor patio in the summer! There will be a line on a sunny day, so be prepared to wait.
● Chewies: http://www.chewies.ca/kitsilano/

Definitely one of the best sushi spots in the city. Always fresh, this place is guaranteed to satisfy all of your sushi cravings.
● The Naam: http://www.thenaam.com/
A Kitsilano institution! This is one of Kitsilano’s oldest restaurants and they’ve lasted this long for a reason. Serving all vegetarian, the food is tasty, the portions are large and tit’s open 24/7 so you can always get your fix.
