Yaletown has had its up and downs and people either love it or hate it.

Once an artistic and independent neighbourhood, after it got popular it was dominated with chain restaurants and party-goers. The quaint neighourhood became an overpriced destination where locals wanted to live and tourists wanted to visit.

Yaletown’s popularity may have peaked, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have a second wind. It’s still a cosmopolitan area with restaurants worth trying.

The 9th Annual Taste of Yaletown (TOY) runs from October 16 to 27 and while these events might not be representable of restaurants on a regular night, it’s a good excuse to try some of the special TOY menus and support local businesses. Set menus are $25, $35, and $45 and range from three to seven courses.

This year, there are a record 30 participating restaurants, and for the first time they are offering a Yaletown Lunch Trolley service which transports people from the downtown area to Yaletown on Thursdays and Fridays for lunch and drops them back within the hour.
