Vancouver – Nightingale

Before heading out for my mom’s birthday dinner K and I headed to this new “light maze” instead of going to the Van Dusen’s Festival of Light. The maze was really to see some lights and find all nine Santa’s reindeer.

After enjoying the maze it was off to dinner. This was my second time at Nightingale and it’s one of the best Western restaurants in Vancouver, sadly there aren’t many since there are significantly more Asian restaurants, specifically Chinese, that are frequented more often. While they have pizza, best to skip it to have many shared plates. The chicken, bison and beef cheek were the best ones we had.



Citrus & Avocado Salad: Thai basil, crispy shallots, lime vinaigrette


Marinated Beets: sumac, labneh, orange, dukkah, mint


Burrata & Anchovy Toast: peperonata, parsley


Fried Chicken: preserved lemon yogurt, dill, espelette


Bison Tongue: carrot escabeche, celery root, grilled bread


Bone Marrow: dill pickle, garlic aioli, radish, grilled bread


Beef Cheek: semolina polenta, pickled mushrooms


Merguez Sausage: baba ghanouj, shishito pepper, mint


Clams and Mussels: n’duja, roasted tomato broth


Valhrona chocolate cheesecake, pretzel, blood orange caramel
