He Shoots, She Scores


He Shoots, She Scores

If hubby is more fixated on assists than assisting with dinner now that hockey season has started, throw in the tea towel and sup at McLean’s Restaurant.

The namesake establishment of owner and former Canucks' goalie Kirk McLean isn’t your standard sports bar. Head downstairs for game watching and you’ll find grey flannel booths, delicate lighting and mon dieu! even a few fresh flowers. Warming up the requisite flatscreens in the room are black and white personal photos and hockey memorabilia like vintage skates.

What would Kirk order before the big game? A Canadian beer and the Sterling Silver Pork Chop, he says.

If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em (and order a glass of pinot gris).

McLean’s Restaurant, 200-332 Water St., Vancouver, 604-669-1112,
