Yes, the gourmet grocery on 14th and Granville is participating in Dine Out this year! Their $18 Dine Out menu--which features a choice of Steelhead Trout or pasta, plus lush Lava Cake for dessert--can be prepared as take out, so you can grab it and go!

Bring your appetite to Kitsilano's Las Margaritas; it serves Mexican food by way of Southern California, which means it is rich. I'm not sure most people will be able to make it through all three courses of its $18 Dine Out menu (seriously, corn soup and enchiladas and dessert?!), but it will be a pleasure to try!
