The Coal Harbour Cactus Club is Open!!!

It's of Wednesday night, Cactus Club's flagship location is officially open!  With amazing views of the Olympic cauldron on one side of the restaurant, stunning views of Stanley park on the other, the classic Cactus Club menu, great service and a patio that seats 200, this place is sure to be hopping all summer long!  I was very impressed with the restaurant itself and would definitely say it's the nicest Cactus Club I've ever been in.  I have no doubt it's going to quickly become one of the top patios in Vancouver. 
Things to note: (1) If you're going for a work lunch it gets crazy busy right around 11:45, so make sure you get there early.  (2) The patio tables look like they have gas heaters in them, so you should be able to keep toasty warm at all times of the year.  (3) If you're driving down in the evening, valet parking is offered for $7.  (4) They take reservations for parties of 8 or more.
To the lovely ladies I was lucky enough to lunch with on Friday...thanks for the laughs and good company over lunch.  And to the lady who made sure to get their early enough to get us a table, I owe you one!

Now that's what I call a location!

Raincoast Greens: grilled chicken, avocado, tomatoes, feta, egg, spicy pecans, berries, lemon-thyme vinaigrette. ($16.50)

Quinoa Salad: quinoa, arugula, feta, snap peas, grape tomato, red peppers, spicy pecans, sherry vinaigrette with salmon added.  ($17.25)

 Butternut Squash Ravioli with Prawns: butternut squash and mascarpone ravioli, truffle butter, jumbo prawns and pine nuts.  ($24.75)

My Szechuan Salmon Rice Bowl: Ocean-wise steelhead, miso mustard, broccoli, edamame, red peppers, snap peas, daikon and pea shoot salad.  Delicious!  ($16.50)

Our view.  It's not very often that you get to eat lunch looking at the Olympic cauldron!
