Best of Vancouver: Best Complimentary Bread

Some times a simple element like complimentary bread can elevate a meal and dining experience to a whole new level. Here are some of Vancouver's top bread baskets:

Glowbal http://www.glowbalgrill.com/ (Hawaiian Pink Sea Salt with warmed butter) MM

La Brasserie http://www.labrasserievancouver.com/  The Leggy Redhead LOVED this rich salty butter and thought it tasted like it had been made with chicken stock.

The Reef http://thereefrestaurant.com/ (Bucket of Johnny Cakes)MM *What are Johnny Cakes? Johnny Cakes are fantastically delicious! These Fried Cornmeal Cake Balls served with mango pineapple butter and their house hot sauce will have you planning your next trip to The Reef.

Al Porto http://www.alporto.ca/  (delicious focaccia)

Olive Garden http://www.olivegarden.com/default_f.asp (unlimited breadsticks)

Pied a Terre http://www.pied-a-terre-bistro.ca/ TV LOVES this bread, she loves the presentation (served on a receipt skewer), crusty on the outside, fresh and soft on the inside with a rich, salty, spreadable butter.

Locus Restaurant & Lounge on Main http://www.locusonmain.com/  MM
Kate writes "The dinner bread is herby and fresh with some spicy butter churned in heaven. I could just mainline that stuff all night. And then the brunch basket has two kinds of whipped butter (sweet and savoury)."
