Where Vancouver - - Dining - —Tim Pawsey

Across from the Olympic Caul­dron, in­side the Van­cou­ver Con­ven­tion Cen­tre’s west build­ing, Lot185 (page 65) is a West Coast riff on a mod­ern Euro­cafe. Drop by in the morn­ing for ex­cel­lent cof­fee and per­fect pas­tries. Or go later for lunch or early din­ner. De­tail-driven dishes range from tuna poke and smart sal­ads to a plethora of piz­zas (we love the funghi bianchi) and deca­dent desserts. The laid-back set­ting tempts with cos­set­ing booths or seats at the bar, plus lo­cal brews and wines by the glass. And the name? It refers to the land ti­tle, pur­chased in 1862 by three English­man who were de­rided for pay­ing too much— for what is now the West End.

Lot185 dishes up (L-R) opera cake, magura salad with tuna tataki, and Neapoli­tan-style pizza with prosci­utto and arugula
