Two local eateries are among the region’s dining hotspots featured in the new Dine the Line campaign.
TransLink has partnered with WestCoastFood and 13 destination marketing groups to promote Metro Vancouver’s dining and brewpub neighbourhoods. The campaign, which provides maps and videos highlighting restaurant and brewery tours, features three different experiences along TransLink’s three SkyTrain lines: Breweries and Bites via Millennium Line; Dim Sum to Dinner via Canada Line; and World Cuisines via Expo Line.
“We want people to get out there and experience Metro Vancouver’s unique dining and brewpub neighbourhood, and we want people to use transit to get there,” TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond said in a press release. Transit connects our communities in so many ways, and we want transit to be the way that residents and tourists discover culinary hubs throughout our great city.”
Longtail Kitchen in River Market (810 Quayside Dr.) and el Santo (680 Columbia St.) are part of the World Cuisine via Expo Line. Longtail takesa modern spin on Thai street fare, such as noodles, fried rice and satays, while El Santo serves up contemporary Mexican cuisine.
“Taking the SkyTrain is great. It connects us to the vibrant Vancouver food scene,” el Santo executive chef Sam Fabbro said in a press release. “It’s so close to so many of the cities’ great restaurants. We at el Santo love being steps away from the New West station. It allows guests from all over Metro Van to access us easily.”
