Dine Out Vancouver 2008- The Observatory (Grouse Mountain)

My husband and I decided to try The Observatory Restaurant for Dine Out Vancouver 2008.  I have to say, I highly recommend this venue for the Dine Out experience.  Because The Observatory is located at the top of Grouse Mountain, patrons may feel hesitant to go because they would have to pay for the lift.  But, during Dine Out, the restaurant creates a package for its valued customers.  The $35 Value includes: The 3 course Dine Out Menu, the lift up the mountain, tickets to the ice rink, sleigh rides and the Grouse Mountain’s Theater in the Sky.  I’d rather get all this than a $25 dish with 1 asparagus over a tbsp of mashed potatoes… I’ll post about that experience later.  Here’s the menu.  I rate this restaurant 5 BIG STARS!!!!!   

Appetizer:

Salad of Poached Bosc Pear and Roquefort
organic winter greens, candied pecans, pear walnut vinaigrette

or

Cream of Shallot Soup
