The B&B Carrot Cake from Black+Blue is one of the many items on the Glowbal menus for Dine Out Vancouver 2014.

It’s that time of the year again, where food enthusiasts from all over the Lower Mainland and beyond embark on seventeen days fueled by eating and drinking, sans guilt.  Of course we’re talking about Dine Out Vancouver. 

With over 260 different restaurants taking part at this year’s this Dine Out Vancouver there is sure to be something to whet your palate and have you ditching the gym. Whether you’re into casual fare or fine dining, Dine Out Vancouver can be a fun way to try somewhere that’s been on your checklist, or hit up an old favorite for a taste of something new.

This week we had the opportunity to check out a preview of Glowbal Group’s Dine Out line-up at three of the five restaurants they have participating this year.

We started our tour at Italian Kitchen where we enjoyed a tasting of an appetizer and main from their $28 menu. Highlights include the House Cured Duck Prosciutto with crostini, sour cherries and burrata; Lobster Ravioli with lemon cream fennel and lobster salad. For dessert, enjoy IK’s Maple Roasted Panna Cotta with vanilla anglaise. We particularly enjoyed the Lobster Ravioli, and would definitely come back for this menu again.

Our next stop was Black+Blue who is offering a three-course menu for $38 per person. Highlights include the Josper Grilled Vegetable Napoleon, which Adrian absolutely loved. The Slow Cooked Guinness Braised Short Rib with applewood smoked cheddar spatzle and winter greens was to die for, and you won’t want to miss the B&B Carrot Cake, served with a coconut and ginger macaron

Our last stop of the evening was Coast Restaurant, who is also offering a fabulous three-course menu for just $38 per person. Highlights here included the Salmon Two Ways, one with an olive crusted with pea-basil puree, served with a prawn and bacon croquette; the other was roasted and served with a cauliflower puree and wild mushrooms.

It can be overwhelming trying to navigate the abundance of menus and events that Dine Out Vancouver has to offer, so if you’re having any trouble deciding, we’d definitely recommend all three of these Glowbal establishments for you to try.
