Globe@YVR, Vancouver International Airport
Located before security and within the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel, directly above the U.S. departures terminal, Globe@YVR offers panoramic views out floor-to-ceiling windows and Pacific Northwest cuisine and sustainable seafood. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner (as well as a children’s menu and a three-course tasting option) are all available. Mornings feature a buffet and specialties like a West Coast seafood omelet, while a new dinner menu debuting in early May will highlight items like fennel-pollen-seared scallops with orange-glazed duck confit, aged balsamic, juniper and baby cress; lobster and prawn spaghetti; and 24-hour-braised short ribs with Yukon gold mashed potatoes and seasonal baby vegetables. Go for desserts like sticky toffee pudding, organic chai-spiced carrot cake and a selection of cheeses from British Columbia. Wines hail from the region’s famed Okanagan Valley and around the world. 604-248-3281; fairmont.com.
