Event Info

Back by popular demand, Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise Pop-Up Café returns for a second year during Dine Out Vancouver.

Guests will delight in renowned Ocean Wise executive chef Ned Bell’s three-course menu featuring dishes from his inaugural cookbook Lure and showcasing the best in sustainable, locally-sourced ingredients. Wine pairings will be available for an additional cost.
