A no messing around guide to the coolest things to eat, drink and do in Vancouver and beyond. Community. Not clickbait.

Two Award-Winning Chefs, One Japanese Whisky, Some Jazz and a Night at Kissa Tanto

On Sunday, November 5th Chef Marc-Olivier Frappier, of the recently crowned “Best Restaurant in Canada,” Mon Lapin, collaborates with Chef Joël Watanabe of Kissa Tanto for a 7-course supper at the Vancouver restaurant.

Tickets are not cheap ($350 per person) but they are easily justifiable if you calculate the money and time you’ll save by not having to travel all the way to Montreal to eat at Mon Lapin… Add to that the Chef Watanabe factor, plus that your meal will be enhanced by exclusive spirits and cocktails made with Nikka Whisky (including a special pre-release tasting of the Yoichi 10 Year). There will also be jazz, really lovely people, and a pretty-as-heck room to enjoy. $350 is starting to sound like a steal, isn’t it?

Tickets are moving quickly for this once-in-a-lifetime culinary experience, so grab yours now here.
