Tap and Barrel
At first blush this spot looks like another outpost of an upscale casual chain (red umbrellas, hostess station), but on closer inspection there’s much more on offer. Like, at the Olympic Village location, two enormous False Creek-facing patios so large they dwarf the interior space. Like the tapsÑseemingly endless rows dispensing a rogue’s gallery of pretty much every available local brew. Like the two-footed jump into the nascent trend of wine on tap with 14 options. The food veers back to the causal fine dining mouldÑburgers, pizzas, salads, all well done (but you’re here for the amazing view and array of drinks).
