Clark County restaurants will once again offer special three for $25 menus throughout the month of October as part of Dine the Couve. This year, the dining celebration expands to a daylong event, with different restaurants bringing forward meal options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Many are also offering takeout, letting you take the delicious dishes home so you can savor the leftovers (and maybe order an extra meal for later). Keep reading for a guide to planning your perfect meal, no matter what time of day.
Head to uptown Vancouver’s Bleu Door Bakery with your beau and dig into a breakfast smorgasbord. Keep your eyes open with hearty house coffee, then hunker into tasty biscuits and gravy. Save room, because you’ll split the delightful sour cream coffee cake for a breakfast dessert. Feeling more weekday brunchy? Swing by C’est La Vie for croque madame, a mimosa (or coffee or wine), and tasty autumn salad.
Swing into either location of Pacific House for a beer of your choice alongside savory deep-fried broccoli and elk tacos. Dining for two? Say Ciao!, Hopworks, and Loowit all have tasty offerings designed for a duo.
Feeling like a fancy night out on the town (or in your dining room)? Head to Elements in downtown, Eatery at the Grant House on the Historic Reserve, or Hudson’s Bar & Grill at the Heathman Lodge. All are putting forth tasty three-course options that will delight the senses.. Head to Farrar’s Bistro for tasty spinach-and-artichoke dip, your choice among three sandwiches, and a decadent peanut butter brownie sundae. Looking for a bit more of a casual crowd-pleaser? Beaches on the Waterfront, Barlows Public House, and Nom Nom all have plenty of options to choose from—also available for takeout—while Rally and Nonavo both put forth a mouthwatering selection of pizzas and complementary accouterments.
Drinks and snacks
Satisfy that late-night hunger and enjoy yourself with cocktails, pizza, and cookies at Vault 31 Bar; sip beers and nibble flatbread at Final Draft Taphouse; or enjoy charcuterie or bratwursts and beers to share at Trusty. Remember, alcohol service in Clark County must stop at 10 pm, so plan your meals accordingly. The silver lining? Many breweries and bars do have to-go beer and cocktail options, so check out the menus and sip at your leisure in your living room if you want to keep the party going.
