Brix is one of those restaurants that creates lasting memories, and not only because of its dreamy cobblestone courtyard, with draping ivy, chandeliers and candles that ooze romance.

“These are the best chicken wings I’ve ever had!” is not something I expected to exclaim during a romantic, candlelit anniversary dinner in the city’s best new fine dining restaurant, Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar.

I usually plan a weekend getaway leading up to our wedding anniversary and for #9 this year, I looked east to the Fraser Valley.
