On a quiet street in Kitsilano, a laid-back suburb west of downtown, you’ll find Annalena, an upscale spot serving Pacific Northwest food. Walking in, you’ll see all the black leather lounges, and probably feel like you’re in a club, except one with a lot of rare modern art figurines. Once you see the menu though, with food like oysters, halibut, and steak, and twists like smoked egg yolk and sea asparagus tapenade, you won’t even notice where you are. It’s all very impressive and delicious, and makes it a perfect place for a special occasion, especially given the tasting menu option. Don’t leave without eating the duck liver pate while wondering whether their Toy Story figurines were watching you, along with the rest of the collectable vinyl toy bears.
