Vancouver, Washington often gets confused with its Canadian namesake or lumped into the greater Portland area, but this city just north of Portland is developing its own identity as a place for stellar food and drink. The Vancouver Waterfront, filled with Washington wine tasting rooms and regional chain restaurants, draws curious visitors for local businesses like Kafiex Coffee Roasters, Dos Alas Latin Kitchen and Tequila Bar, and Pop Local. Nonetheless, it’s downtown Vancouver, only a few blocks away from this shiny new development, which remains the beating heart of this city and the place where most of essential dining spots reside. Vancouver’s International District, another remarkable area for food and drink, stretches across Fourth Plain Boulevard featuring restaurants (including Su Casa Marquez listed below), bars, grocery stores, and bakeries serving delicacies from around the world.
This list includes the restaurants, food carts, and bars — new and old — that have become the crown jewels of the city, from Hazel Dell to Fisher’s Landing. For more Vancouver dining, check out our happy hour, brewery, and kid-friendly dining guides.
