Raincoaster – Lorraine Murphy at Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar – Sutton Place Hotel in Vancouver

April Smith of AHA MEDIA had the most exquisite dinner with very dear friend and mentor Raincoaster – Lorraine Murphy at the very exclusive Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar in the 5-star Sutton Place Hotel in downtown Vancouver.

Our drinks were Rosé wine and Scotch, while we admired the dinner menu.

Jess, our server was delightful and attentive while guiding us through our fresh seafood choices.

We began with the highly recommended crispy chicken wings created with fish sauce caramel, sambal chilli,  and tangly refreshing pickled vegetables was a lovely way to start this sumptuous dinner. Thanks to Raj Taneja for his fantastic foodie endorsement of how good the crispy chicken wings were!

Feasting on the Seafood Tower for two was a true decadent and savory delight with wild sidestripe shrimp ceviche, albacore tuna poke, read island mussel escabèche, dungeness crab louie, snow crab legs, wild shrimp, with local oysters on ice topping a most impressive 2 tier seafood platter!
