With a name like The Only Sea Foods, this Vancouver Canada restaurant better be a special kind of place. For 59 years, this downtown treasure has been just that, most recently if only for its well known neon sign.

Unfortunately, the neon sea horse may have cast its last look down East Hastings. The Only Sea Foods restaurant shut down in June 2009 and the landmark sign was removed in April 2010. Fortunately, this sign is being stored and may possibly be restored by the Portland Hotel Society who hope to reopen the restaurant in a new location. 04-10
