Pidgin is an Asian/French restaurant in Gastown that feels sort of like a basement, but one with windows that you would want to live in. You’ll find food that’s more creative than anywhere else, and it’s good for a special occasion (especially if you opt for their tasting menu) or a night spent staring into someone’s eyes. Share things like their kombu risotto, short ribs with kimchi, and pork belly rice bowl, just make sure you start with the oysters that come in shot glasses with apple granite - they’re like a briny slushie, in a somehow not weird way. Come for dinner or sit at the bar during Happy Hour (daily from 5-6pm) and have the bartender make you one of their incredible cocktails, or choose something from the country’s largest selection of Japanese whiskey.
