The Michelin Guide Vancouver debut is fast-approaching and a few locals have shared their thoughts on which restaurants in the city deserve a spot on the list.

For the first time ever, the Michelin Guide is coming to Vancouver and restaurants that made the cut will be revealed on October 27.

Vancouver will be joining Toronto as one of the Canadian Michelin Guide destinations this season. This foodie guide is meant to showcase amazing restaurants and professionals in each city.

Before knowing which restaurants are worthy enough to make the guide, Narcity asked locals, in an Instagram Q&A, which restaurants in Vancouver they feel deserve a spot in the Michelin Guide.

Whether or not they make the list, they might be worth checking out just because of how loved they are by these Vancouverites.
