375 Water, Vancouver BC, Canada
Year after year Steamworks finds its way into the Straight's Best of Vancouver issue as one of the best brew pubs in town and we can't disagree. An extensive beer list, including seasonal beers, a stylish Über Lounge, Wine Room, and Harbour View Room available for private functions and delicious creations from chef Gerry Gough, makes for one great way to end a long day at work.
Located just east of Waterfront Station, Steamworks is a hangout for newspaper journalists who work in nearby Granville Square. The food menu features roasted blueberry-maple chicken, grilled angus sirloin, New York striploin, bacon-wrapped filet, and the "expense account steak"—a 12-ounce whopper with lobster tail, tiger prawn skewer, herbed mushrooms, and garlic toast. The award-winning chili is also a hit and there are also Asian options, such as the Bombay butter chicken and Asian duck lettuce wraps. Then there are those pizzas, which come in seven different varieties.
