Moored alongside the prestigious False Creek Yacht Club, the Plastic Dining Room – the brainchild of Shannon Ronalds, founder of the School of Fish Foundation – is a floating restaurant that floats on a platform made from 1,700 recycled plastic two-liter bottles. Builder/designer Mike Lid laid the foundation on the assumption, which says that each two-liter bottle displaces 4.4 pounds of water. A wooden structure that encases the plastic bottles keeps them from decaying. The wood framework is made from reclaimed pine wood.

Opening July 21, the floating restaurant will serve quality meals with wines to 12 people daily for the next two months. The award-winning C restaurant will cook and donate the multi-course meal costing around $195 to $215 for six courses with wine pairings.
