A Visit to the Crime Lab Bistro
We had our third visit to the Crime Lab Bistro and again it did not disappoint. One of the best things about being a local in the winter is the ease of getting a great table at Vancouver’s most popular restaurants. While in the warmer months getting a table was difficult, on a Monday night in February we had no problem getting one of the best tables in the house – a bench seat with a view of the harbor. With the sliding doors closed, a small heater near by and very dim lighting, the space felt very cozy.

The wine list is not extensive but contains a good selection at every price range with a mix of BC and International wines. The menu is also not large but has contained a few different items each time we have dined and is also more reasonably priced that some of the restaurant’s Coal Harbor neighbors making it easier for locals to visit more often. The Clam Chowder was both delicious and filling featuring both Oysters and Clams still in the shell. As a main course I opted for the Vegetarian Burger and was very impressed. While I have tasted my fair share of Veggie burgers that tend to be drier than I hope, this one was different. With goat cheese as the main binding ingredient the patty was very moist and flavorful. While not the healthiest Veggie burger I have ever eaten it was the best. I think I’ll start adding a bit of goat cheese to my homemade burger patties for barbequing this summer.

Food – GREAT, Service – GOOD, Atmosphere – GREAT
