Profile Last Updated: May 01, 2008
Inside the Metropolitan Hotel in Downtown Vancouver, Diva at the Met has developed a reputation as one of Vancouver’s best restaurants. Winner of a host of awards including Vancouver Magazine’s Best Hotel Dining in 2005 and 2004, Northwest Palate’s Most Creative Menu in 1999 and Gourmet Magazine’s Top Table Vancouver in 1997, Diva is really in a league of its own.
A Taste of the Pacific Northwest
Chefs Ray Henry, Thomas Haas and Damon Campbell have created a menu of International cuisine with a distinct Northwest flavour. Try Diva’s decadent breakfast featuring the Diva Benny with Italian cured bacon, sun dried tomato hollandaise and a caramelized onion thyme scone. Come by for lunch and you’ll find tasty treats like the grilled Kobe iron steak with sweet potato croquette and peppered Ahi tuna with Tuscan bread and Tyroler bacon salad. Stay for dinner and The Canadian Prime Rib Beef Rib-Eye with crispy potato rosti, cauliflower horseradish puree and bordelaise sauce is always a popular choice. Try a bottle of wine from one of 500 varieties in the cellar and don’t forget dessert, Pastry Chef Haas was named one of North America's top 20 artisan chocolatiers by Chocolatier Magazine in 2004.
A Culinary Show
Perhaps the best part of a meal at Diva is the opportunity to watch the Chefs work inside the open Waldorf-style kitchen in the centre of the restaurant. It’s a culinary spectacle right on front of your eyes. The Potts van der Lippe designed restaurant, featuring four separate seating areas including a bar and lounge and three dining levels, is decorated in warm tones with lightwood marble, glass and bronze. From the unbelievable food to the classy décor, Diva at the Met’s attention to detail ensures it remains one of Vancouver’s best dining experiences.
