Lift Bar and Grill Happy Hour Menu Preview
For you lucky slackers not chained to their desk from 9-5, you get to take full advantage of happy hour specials. Lift Bar and Grill recently launched their Happy Hour Menu. The entire food bar menu is half priced, every day, between 3 – 6PM. For more, check out my list of happy hour specials.
Don’t forget to take advantage of their buck – a – shucks during happy hour. I absolutely recommend pairing oysters with a brew or wine. It’s the perfect palette marriage, one without the other is just not the same. I also have a list of current buck a shucks promotions.
The bar menu could be compared to an English Language School, a mish mash of different cultures. The menu went from Japanese to west coast to Italian.
My night started with a glass of prosecco and Japanese inspired bites. Vegetable and prawn tempura and dynamite and tuna rolls.
I have an aversion to ordering sushi rolls at posh western restaurants. They are ridiculously overpriced and, you are paying a premium for their fancy plates and cutlery. That being said, the dynamite roll was damn good. Would I pay $6 for it during happy hour? Yes. Regular price at $12? No.
As the night rolled on I got to sample their crab cakes, which was drizzled with almond lemon mayonnaise and crispy capers. Delicious. Serrano and burrata flat bread with artichoke puree, baby arugula and aged balsamic. It’s very hard to go wrong when burrata and serrano are put together.
If you want the best bang for your buck I recommend the truffle fries $4 and the charcuterie plate $6. It’s scrumptious and one of the best deals in Vancouver.
