#DineOut with @hummingbird604 and @millbistro

The Mill (Coal Harbour)It’s amazing how I have been to so many of the Daniel Hospitality Group restaurants, yet I don’t think I have had an opportunity to write about The Mill Marine Bistro (and let me tell you, I’ve been here for dinner and for drinks. The first time I came here was with my good friend Nathan Tippe, in fact). But I really love their restaurants. And specially, The Mill Marine Bistro.

The Mill Marine Bistro is a European style waterfront bistro and neighbourhood pub with a small, cozy sixty-seat interior, and downtown Vancouver’s largest outdoor patio! Our menu concept is healthy bistro & pub fare; simple comfort food at a great value. No fried foods – all fresh and seasonal ingredients prepared in a healthy manner. We love great music, the outdoors, and a fun and positive attitude! We are environmentally and socially responsible, and this is fundamental to our being. Come play with us and have fun on our patio – downtown Vancouver’s largest outdoor patio! Or relax in our pub – we can’t wait to serve you at The Mill.

This year, The Mill Bistro has generously offered to partner with me during Dine Out Vancouver and thus enabled me to give away a gift certificate for dinner for two (drinks, tax and gratuity excluded) during the period of Dine Out Vancouver 2012 (January 20 – February 5, 2012).

All you need to do to enter my giveaway is to tell me what which seawall in Vancouver is your favorite. As you may (or may not, in fact), a substantial number of the Daniel Group Restaurants are located within mere metres from the seawall. For example, The Mill Marine Bistro itself is in Coal Harbour. The Burrard Bridge Grill (also from the Daniel Group) is underneath the Burrard Bridge, and very close to the Northern False Creek seawall. My favorite seawall is, without a doubt, Coal Harbour (and coincidentally, the one nearest to The Mill Marine Bistro!). Though there might be other seawalls I don’t know about that are more secluded!

To earn an additional entry for a total of two, you can tweet the following:

I will draw randomly from all Twitter and comment entries one winner on January 20th at 2pm, which is the day when Dine Out Vancouver starts. Good luck everyone, and thanks again to The Mill Marine Bistro for partnering with me to bring Dine Out Vancouver to more Vancouverites! Check The Mill Marine Bistro’s menu here. During Dine Out Vancouver, it should be a beautiful viewing spot and a great opportunity for dinner. Hopefully you’ll try it soon, whether it is by winning my contest or on your own! Reservations highly recommended.

I do the seawall a couple time a month, and more than likely that involves dining at a restaurant on or near it, including the Mill. The Teahouse is usually my go to along the stroll, or LIFT, or Carderos if Im in Coal Harbour

Just because I live very near, I still love the Stanley Park seawall right near sunset beach

BonsJanuary 13th, 2012 at 12:45 pm

My favourite seawall is Coal Harbour. I don’t venture into Downtown often, but it’s always a pleasure to go down to Coal Harbour whenever I get the chance.

JennyJanuary 13th, 2012 at 12:52 pm

I love walking along the Coal Harbour seawall.

ValerieJanuary 13th, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Coal Harbour is great – lots of public art, wide paths…good for biking and walking.

TeresaJanuary 13th, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Stanley Park

Yuri ArtibiseJanuary 13th, 2012 at 3:01 pm

I’m partial to SE Falser Creek. Love seeing the reflections of Yaletown, and the lit up Science World and BC Place at night. I’m super stoked that Daniel Group will be opening Village Kitchen at the Athlete’s Village soon.

mariaJanuary 13th, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Coal Harbour!! But they are all so nice for a stroll!

TintinJanuary 13th, 2012 at 5:24 pm

Beverly WuJanuary 13th, 2012 at 6:11 pm

I like the one that start around Urban Fare near Davie and heads towards the Burrard Bridge.

Coal Harbour – excellent ice cream, which is always a bonus aspect to a walk.

loriJanuary 13th, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Stanley Park is so lovely

JanJanuary 13th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

Having worked at Expo I have to choose False Creek as all the changes never fail to amaze me.

Coal Harbour is my favorite as well, so much so that I had our engagement pictures taken there. Now we have fantastic photos with stunning scenery. :)

BradleyJanuary 14th, 2012 at 1:06 am

Stanley Park seawall without a doubt!

E. TangJanuary 14th, 2012 at 2:15 pm

My fave seawall would have to be South False Creek, starting off in Yaletown and making my way through English Bay into Stanley Park.

LoisJanuary 14th, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Coal Harbour for me too. I work right near it – I resolve to utilize it more often.

CarolJanuary 15th, 2012 at 9:23 am

I love the sea wall around Stanley Park. It is such a lovely walk as the scenery keeps changing. Good for people watching, too.

AndrewJanuary 15th, 2012 at 3:38 pm

Gotta be the Coal Harbour for me! Very beautiful view, wish I lived there.

Coal Harbour and then West Van

I love Stanley Park too… then head up the hill to Prospect Point for ice cream!

SarahJanuary 15th, 2012 at 7:54 pm

Stanley park is most definitely my favorite. It’s iconic Vancouver!

I really love Coal Harbor. In the summer, I sit near that area and watch the float planes land in the water! Really beautiful place.

I retweeted!

GAIL WHITWORTHJanuary 16th, 2012 at 9:38 am

Coal harbour is where I love to hang out and ride my bike on a sunny weekend. THE VIEW is amazing, watching the people traffic enchanting.

KarenJanuary 16th, 2012 at 3:11 pm

I love the False Creek seawall.

RoJanuary 16th, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Nothing beats a walk on the False Creek side. It’s the best prescription for clearing one’s head after a hectic day.

Danielle BuhlerJanuary 17th, 2012 at 12:51 am

My favourite seawall is looking across to Granville Island from the Burrard Bridge Grill

Coal Harbour…

raincoasterJanuary 20th, 2012 at 8:37 am

My favorite is the seawall exactly under the Lion’s Gate Bridge, as you come around the corner and see the sun setting over the ocean. It’s awesome.

Scott FergusonJanuary 20th, 2012 at 8:37 am

My wife and I love to bike all of the seawall, but we always stop for a drink and a rest at Coal Harbour.

CorrieJanuary 20th, 2012 at 8:38 am

Ambleside in West Van and going to commune coffee after for a muffin and coffee!

GigiJanuary 20th, 2012 at 8:58 am

I absolutely adore taking walks along the Coal Harbour seawall in the summertime with my girlfriends. It’s an inexpensive leisure activity with exercise as a bonus! :)

VaughanJanuary 20th, 2012 at 9:07 am

My favourite seawall is along Stanley Park in the early mornings.

AmandaJanuary 20th, 2012 at 10:45 am

Coal Harbour, and Mill Marine are by far my favourite seawall and place to dine in Vancouver! After moving here from the east coast I stumbled across Mill Marine and it is by far my favourite place to dine out in Vancouver! I would love to win this amazing dine out opportunity!

Sarah SJanuary 20th, 2012 at 10:59 am

Love Coal Harbour!
