Tasting Plates Downtown South on Sept 16 – Get Your Tickets

The latest Tasting Plates is coming up September 16; This one featuring restaurants in the Downtown South area of Vancouver.  I am quite excited with the list of restaurants, especially C Prime Modern Italian Steakhouse & Wine Bar, as they participated in the Calamari Challenge in June and made a FANTASTIC tasting dish with cheese stuffed calamari, bathed in a wonderful tomato sauce.  I can hardly wait to try their Tasting Plates offering.  You will see me there, and the other venues so please sign up before the tickets sell out.  It will be a lot of fun.  Here is the announcement by Vancouver Foodster.

~~~

Tantalize your taste buds at several restaurants and establishments in the Downtown South neighborhood (between Bute to Yaletown’s edge and Burrard to Nelson). This tasting extravaganza goes from 6pm until 10pm and is presented by Vancouver Foodster.

Each restaurant will be serving up Tasting Plates and Tasting Cups for guests to enjoy and you will have a chance to visit many different types of restaurants throughout the event, meet some new food loving friends, meet the chefs, and learn about each of the participating restaurants.
