A seafood dinner allows eaters to enjoy the bounty of the sea without the hassles of chasing a kraken with a fork or bringing the entire ocean to a rolling boil. Nosh on aquatic delicacies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sustainable seafood, upscale comfort fare, and drinks during dinner or weekend lunch at Mosaic Bar & Grille, located inside the Hyatt Regency Vancouver.
The culinary wizards at Mosaic Bar & Grille whip up a menu replete with upscale comfort fare and sustainable seafood certified as ocean-friendly by the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise conservation program. Mosaic's chef-apprentice Tyson Gee assists with the unique menu, and was a member of the culinary team that created a special meal for Prince William and Kate Middleton on their visit to Canada. Spoons embark on Cousteau-inspired dives while digging through the northwest-style chowder for morsels of halibut, salmon, and mussels ($10); a plate of British Columbia sablefish sashays over to tables flanked by a supporting cast of brussels sprout hash and young carrots ($34). The shepherd’s pie herds landlubbing taste buds into formation with tender-yet-authoritative braised lamb leg, elegant pearl onions, and winter truffle mashed potatoes ($31). A selection of herbivorous noshes quells cellulose-seeking tummies, with dishes including a wild mushroom risotto that fuses the classic technology of chanterelle, morel, and crimini mushrooms with the futuristic power of biodynamic rice to propel tongues onto unexplored flavour frontiers ($24).
