Vancouver is a special place, it's cosmopolitan yet we're really close to nature. Drive fifteen minutes from downtown and you can find yourself in the middle of the forest, on top of a mountain, or at the water's edge, so it's no surprise we've been ranked one the "greenest cities" in the world. Those factors have helped shaped the local food scene, which has come a long way over the past 15 years. We have global flavors with a local focus and it's hard to find a newer restaurant that doesn't source ethically raised meat. From croissants that rival Paris' to the best sushi I've ever had, here's how'd I'd spend my 24 hours in Vancouver.
