There are three New West locations on board for the 21st season of the Dine Out Vancouver Festival, which will begin on Friday, Jan. 20.
Gino's Restaurant, a family-run spot serving pizza, pasta, Greek fare, steaks, and burgers since 1972—will offer three courses for $25. Options are available for lunch and dinner, and include entree choices like roast lamb, chicken souvlaki, prawn souvlaki, lasagna with meatballs, or a small specialty pizza.
The restaurant is taking reservations at 604-525-1071.
If you've been itching to grab some Mexican food, El Santo is also on the list. The pricing for this Downtown restaurant's Dine Out offer is $46.
Patrons can choose from delicious entrees like risotto do vieras, carne ahumada, or chile relleno. There are also some vegetarian and gluten free options to choose from.
You can book a table online or call El Santo at 604-553-1849.
The Boathouse New Westminster
If dining closer to the water is more your pace, don't rule out The Boathouse New Westminster. The Quayside spot's menu is $65, with a variety of surf and/or turf meals to choose from like lobster ravioli, Szechuan salmon and shrimp, or a 7oz sirloin with grilled prawns.
The Boathouse New West is accepting online reservations or can be reached at 604-525-3474.

Dine Out Vancouver is currently organized by Destination Vancouver—formerly Tourism Vancouver—and began in 2002 after a group of food and wine enthusiasts pitched the idea of an event that would involve a fixed-price menu. The goal was to get people to visit local restaurants during one of the slowest times of the year.
The inaugural event saw 57 restaurants take part; since then, hundreds of chefs, more than 300 restaurants, wineries, and craft breweries have participated.
The festival will run until Sunday, Feb. 5.
