Vancouver is home to a lot of restaurants and bars, but there are tons of hidden gems that the majority of Vancouverites aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's food players to share their recommendations for a feature dubbed Dining Confidential. Know a chef who wants to share some top dining spots? The tipline is open.

New kids on the DTES block, Burgundy opened recently serving a French-inspired menu. Co-owner Erica Kosciuk shares her love of Davie Street's hidden gems.
So when your favourite neighbourhood restaurant?
Bin 941 has been a go-to of mine; it's a cute little bistro on Davie and Burrard and I like that they've been so consistent over the years. I love their room, the Beef Wellington is amazing and when it's in season they have a halibut dish that I adore.
What did you eat last time you were there?
Because we've been opening the restaurant we've barely been out! But recently I went there with Lisa my Burgundy co-owner and we had the Wellington, of course, because you have to have that - it's their signature dish. Oh, and we had a big plate of these great shoestring fries that they do too. It's tapas and share plates and it's really cosy. It's just been one of my favourites forever.
