4 Luscious Lures
Finny fare thrives throughout downtown. 1 Newly landed at English Bay, Hook Seabar (page 68) blends multiple influences, from sushi to poke to steamers, in a smart modern setting. 2 Just off Robson, Fanny Bay Oyster Bar (page 74) yields a bivalve bonanza, plus salmon burgers, a smoked oyster skillet and an oyster happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. daily. 3 At Main Street’s The Fish Counter (page 72), every bite is certified Ocean Wise: tacos, po’ boys, bouillabaisse and the freshest of fish ’n’ chips. 4 In Yaletown, Rodney’s Oyster House (page 71) revels in fresh oysters, steamers and stews with a laid-back, distinctly East Coast vibe.
At Hook Seabar, chef Kayla Dhaliwall creates specialties such as a spicy tuna roll (back) and tuna tartare (front)
