The week's top dish from Eater Vancouver, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog. Amazing news from the Canucks this week who've signed up one of the city's favourite bartenders. Plus a gala week for all meat lovers across the entire Eater network. Enjoy!
ALL ACROSS THE CITY—It's been a celebratory carnivorous cavalcade across the Eater network this week. Here in Vancouver we've checked out the city's best barbecue in Eater scenes, learned about Shirakawa's authentic Japanese $100 wagyu steaks, mapped the city's 21 Most Iconic Meat Dishes and much, much more. Dive on into the Five Days of Meat - don't forget your toothpick. [EVAN]
ALL ACROSS CANADA—Join chef Ned Bell for week three of his diary as he cycles across Canada to raise awareness for sustainable seafood. This week Ned wheels across Nova Scotia and finds the best lobster sandwich and runs into a mini-tornado. [EVAN]
DOWNTOWN—It's the restaurant that everyone can't wait to check out - chef Alex Chen's Boulevard Kitchen and Oyster Bar. Before its opening in a few weeks time, we reveal the full menu. If it's a meal with a view that you're looking for then there can be no better than floating through the clouds between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains on the Peak2Peak Gondola for a special Bearfoot Bistro dinner.

GO, JAY, GO—And amazing news from the Canucks, who've signed our Eater Awards 2013 winner, bartender Jay Jones as their Director of Wine and Beverage. Craft cocktails while cheering on our boys? It's almost guaranteed. [EVAN]
