New Nosh: Papi’s Seafood and Oyster Bar

We see food: seafood, that is!


Now open on Vancouver's Denman Street (with a clutch view of English Bay), Papi’s Seafood and Oyster Bar is a breath of fresh marine air, done up in breezy ocean greens and blues and serving up the best fresh catches from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The bounty begins at the oyster bar, offering as many as a dozen daily varieties from both coasts on the half shell. Other menu highlights: a belly-filling chowder, crab cakes with a tangy lime dressing and a salmon burger with a side of triple-cooked fries (vegans can order the Beyond Meat version, and there’s a beef patty option, to boot).


Wash your meal down with a charred peach Bellini, honey water margarita or mermaid sour from the bar (or order an oyster shooter with a choice of tequila, vodka or whisky—or all three in a Papi’s Oyster Trident) and admire the back-room wall mural depicting the Greek sea goddess Amphitrite, painted by local artists Arden Marow Ross and Peter Ricq. —Noa Nichol
