Vancouver leads the way in serving sustainable seafood. No further proof needed than chef Frank Pabst’s Unsung Heroes menu, offered through Feb. at Yaletown’s polished Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar. Pabst celebrates more unusual species, like herring, octopus and mackerel, in eminently tasty style, in addition to house classics such as Arctic char, ling cod and sablefish. For a bowl of the tastiest, creamiest spot prawn chowder in town, head to two-time Chowder Chowdown winner Forage. To track down the nearest sustainable seafood dish, download the Ocean Wise iPhone app, with 3,000 partners listed across the continent, including Coast Restaurant and The Fish House in Stanley Park.
