“Botanist’s a darling of international food hounds and most recently made the World’s 50 Best Discovery List (one of three restaurants in Vancouver). It’s done some rarefied dinner collaborations with two-and three-Michelin-starred chefs and Hector Laguna shows he’s an equal. The Pacific Northwest changes often.

Find below Botanist’s feature along with some of the other restaurants to make the roundup. The full article can be found here.
