And we didn’t just choose from the best-known chefs, we also picked some from other foodie hotspots around the country to bring you a taste of what the All-stars will be enjoying.
With some great food options coming to the NHL All Stars Arena this weekend, we decided to break down some of our favorites, so be sure to check back here to see which of the featured restaurants are bringing out the best.
We’re going to start with the Top 10 restaurants that will be bringing the best taste of the NHL all-stars to Vancouver.

This year, he’s putting together a food menu to celebrate the All Stars.
The menu will include a selection of cheeses from around the world, as well as a selection from the city of Vancouver, with dishes like the Bistro La Diamante, which is served with a cheese curd and crispy bacon.
Lewis also has a vegan option on the menu, with some of his most popular creations like the Chocolate Curds with Caramelised Cheddar and the Caramelized Carrot.
The Cheese factory is also hosting a brunch menu this weekend that will feature items like The Cheese Box, which features cheeses, eggs and cheese currants, and the Cheez Whiskey, which includes smoked cheddar cheese and a bourbon caramel.
