I went with one of my girlfriends, Kate, and it was both of our first times at Show Case. The location is a bit out of the way, located on the corner of W. Hastings and Thurlow in Vancouver, really in the heart of where the hotels are.
The service was prompt and we started with a bottle of Kim Crawford Pinot Noir - there was NOTHING frugal about this bottle of wine, at $50. However, it was absolutely delicious. WINE NOTE: There are no bottles of wine on their limited wine list that are under $45. A little disappointing.
The nice thing about the Travelzoo vouchers versus other group dining deals is that you can have anything that you want off the menu. This one in particular included any 2 appetizers, any 2 entrees and any 2 desserts. I started with scallops and Kate had lobster tail risotto. The scallops were perfectly cooked and extremely favourful with pancetta (I am such a sucker for bacon). There had been so many different appys to choose from, and I was happy with my selection. Kate's lobster risotto was amazing! The lobster tail was cooked well, and the risotto had great flavour. When visiting Show Case, treat yourself to either of these appys, you will not be disappointed!
This was a great meal, that was made better by the great deal we got on the Travelzoo voucher. Our server mentioned to us that they were on Travelzoo last summer, so this could be something to look forward to upcoming.
Tip: Parking in the area is very expensive. My frugal recommendation is to take the Skytrain all the way to Burrard - the restaurant is only about a 5 minute walk away from the station.
