The dish ran away with the spoon

If you're looking for a way to impress your date then have I got an idea for you. A fun filled evening of good food, four different restaurants, the romantic heart of Gastown, top chefs, and more. A progressive dinner with a tasty twist.  

Dishcrawl is the buzz word. It’s like a pub crawl except it has food and not just any type of plain old boring run of the mill food, it means mmmh good food from four distinctive restaurants in Vancouver. Gastown area to be exact although I’m not at liberty to share the actual locations! So imagine that, a spontaneous fun date that you can tell your favorite person you’re taking them to dinner, to check out four tasty treat sensations, you just can’t tell them where. 

The Dishcrawl a great food experience that’s so much fun it’s sure to impress your loved one. The secret will be revealed 48 hours before the start of the event which begins Nov 14th at 7 p.m.

The Dishcrawl is the brainstorm of Tracy Lee. The definition of the Dishcrawl is a progression of 3 or more dishes at once. Restaurants are typically known for one or two best dishes so at Dishcrawl they like to restaurant hop, or dishcrawl through ¾ of them at each meal.

The mission of the Dishcrawl is to give folks a reason to get out of the house, socially engage with each other while helping local restaurants gain exposure and to show food lovers the best dishes in local restaurants.

This  is Vancouver’s first ever Dishcrawl where all participants get to enjoy the best dishes from four fabulous restaurants, meet the owners and/or the chefs, indulge in good company and have a great time just doing something unique and different. What a way to make the middle of the week standout!
