Medina Cafe - Brought to you by the same people that run Chambar (it's right next door). Open for breakfast/lunch only. Expect at least an hour wait on the weekend unless you get there 10 mins before they open (as we did) to be part of the first seating. Food was really good, great service, but I wouldn't wait an hour to eat there.
C - Have been meaning to eat here for some time now. Tried the 9-course tasting menu...definately worth it and it was a great way to try a bunch of dishes in one visit. A meal to remember.

It was not part of their actual menu, just an inserted page...
Mushroom veloute, charred octopus salad, seared scallop, salmon risotto, seared albacore tuna, chevre, cucumber sorbet, chocolate brownie, chocolate truffles.
As for Mortons, I think it did close down.
I never went, but I don't go to steakhouses all that often *caugh boring, caugh overpriced*

When I go for a nice dinner, I want something I can not easily cook at home.
Was in the NW BC recently and had a hotel restaurant meal that was deplorable.
I ordered blackened pork tenderloin with spatzle, I received raw pork tenderloin and roasted potato wedges. Sent it back and got the same plate with the medallions of pork now seared on the flat top and the same wedges of potato. Mrs Topper ordered salmon, but not the dry overcooked slab that was on her plate.
This place had the audacity to be charging $30/plate. They wanted $35-$40 for a steak and $3/side dish.

Have to agree....
Since Topper taught me how to properly cook a steak I have been incredibly disappointed with anything from a restaurant.
Gothom was bad (and stupid expensive), Hy's was meh (way better and cheaper then Gothom though), the Kegs has always been crap, but I wouldn't wipe my ass with their food now. Even the T-bone from Darios at the Italian centre in east Van (which has always been great) was kind of a bummer.
A month or so back I went camping for the first time in a bazillion years. Picked up a couple bone in ribeyes from costco and cooked them on a grill over a blazing hot, and smoky camp fire.
Perhaps the best steak I have eaten and I think most of my friends felt the same way.
On a side note, camping fucking sucks my balls. That meal was pretty much the only thing good about my trip.

I hate to say anything good about Cowtown but their steakhouses are WAY better than here.
