Earlier this week, we announced the winners of our 2018 Restaurant Awards—and for the first time ever, we invited every single one of you to join us. But in case you missed the festivities, here are some photos from our most exciting (and most delicious!) event of the year, as taken by the chefs, sommeliers, bartenders, GMs, designers, sponsors and, most importantly, the diners who came to celebrate with us at the Sheraton Wall Centre.

Was great to attend the @vanmag restaurant awards yesterday. Congrats to my old high school friend @chefalexchen of @blvdyvr on taking home Chef of the year along with Best seafood and Best upscale restaurant. Nice work chef! Bonus I got to see @mijunepak too 😘 #vanmagawards

The Boulevard team was so honoured to be named Best Seafood Restaurant and Best Upscale Restaurant at this year’s @vanmag_com restaurant awards.
