Taste of Yaletown features three-course menus, cocktails, and more

The annual Taste of Yaletown kicks off today (October 17) and runs to October 27. A range of restaurants are offering three-course menus for $25, $35, or $45. For example, at Caché Bistro & Lounge (1269 Hamilton Street), choices include a starter of smoked salmon oeuf en cocotte followed by rack of lamb and a dessert sampler for $35. Not into set menus? Next Thursday (October 25), neighbourhood bartenders will compete in Shake Up Yaletown! For $30 (plus ticketing fee), you get cocktail samples and bites from host restaurant Minami (1118 Mainland Street). For info, see the Yaletown Info website.
