But Anyway
a restaurant review

** and 1/2 (of four stars)

It can’t be easy to maintain a successful hotel restaurant. Besides all of the other difficulties inherent in running a profitable standalone restaurant, there is the small task of feeding a hotel. For instance, there are few fine dining restaurants that have to worry about a breakfast service every morning, but hotel restaurants do. And then there’s the small matter of room service, conference center catering, and providing a watering hole for weary tourists and business travelers. But to attempt all of this while also being nestled snuggly the post-apocalyptic war zone that is Cambie street? It’s probably needless to say that Figmint, the restaurant in question, is not in an altogether enviable position. Not to mention the fact that Figmint is located in the Plaza 500 Hotel, not exactly a household name and a building that looks more like an apartment building than a hotel.
