Nightingale is a wonderfully polished, two-story restaurant in the Coal Harbour neighbourhood of Vancouver. Its food menu is impressively large and constantly changing, while the wood fired oven puts out some of the city’s best pies. I can speak from of experience in that department!
The wine list is broad and inviting, organized first by grape variety, and then region. Selections lean European and Californian, while still showcasing some of BCs best producers. For a casual restaurant, it has a dedicated wine staff that are knowledgeable and well trained.
(Star Wine List's ambassador Matthew Landry works part time on the sommelier team at Nightingale, though he is not involved in the wine selections process, Editor's note.)
