Foodies take note: Vancouver USA's restaurant scene is not to be ignored. From tasty food trucks and rustic taprooms to cozy, upscale restaurants, Vancouver USA's eateries feature seasonal, locally sourced ingredients boasting a wide range of flavors. Couve creations include menu items like brick oven roasted halibut with black lentils and local pea shoots to braised short ribs with fingerling potatoes and bacon brussel sprouts.

In downtown Vancouver USA, visitors discover local favorites like regionally-renowned chef William Paul Klitsie's Willem's on Main, the Northwest-fare at Lapellah, or the French-inspired Bleu Door Bakery. If you're in the mood for some comfort food, stop by the urban-chic Low Bar for the chicken 'n waffles with a side of jojos or the Grocery Cocktail and Social for some sweet vermouth braised pork belly. And don't forget to wash down the meal with a delicious artisan cocktail.

In warmer weather, diners take to Vancouver USA's outdoor patios. On the porch of the Grant House, Victoria-era home turned exceptional restaurant, visitors can take in the 19th century history of Officers Row. Or head down to the Columbia River waterfront for tasty plates and a front-row seat to stunning river views at the relaxed Beaches or McMenamins brewpub.

The food cart phenomenon has made it's way to Vancouver USA. Locals and visitors grab an afternoon meal at one of the many rotating Couve Carts including the Mighty Bowl for a healthy bean and rice bowl smothered in tangy sauce, or Hello Waffle for the Caprese made-from-scratch waffle served with pesto aioli, fresh arugula, mozzarella and tomato topped with a balsamic drizzle.
