The GOODS from Maenam

Vancouver, BC | A Vancouver favourite of the New York Times, Maenam restaurant brightens New Year’s Eve with Chef Angus An’s signature Thai flair. Rich with flavour and spice, the one-night-only menu features four family-style courses ideal for sharing with fellow celebrants. Of course, the evening wouldn’t be complete without a toast to ring in 2013; Thai-inspired cocktails and optional wine pairings inspire raised glasses for an elegant finale to the year. Full menu after the jump…

The four-course menu is $57.50 per guest, with a vegetarian menu also available. Due to limited space, guests are encouraged to reserve early by phoning (604) 730-5579.
