Best New Vancouver Restaurants in 2018

I have dined at a lot of new restaurants that have opened in 2018. These are the Best NEW Restaurants in greater Vancouver that newly define how we eat, drink and play. There are many elements to a restaurant being one of the best, it must excel in having not only delicious food, but also have consistent service that is on point, along with a great ambience. To make this annual list each of the restaurants must operate as a full service independent restaurant where customers are taken care of by servers in a sit-down environment.

Note: These are not in any ranking order.
