The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Launches New Sizzling Sensation - The Grill Room
Whistler Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Whistler BC, November 30, 2011 – Succulent steaks, platters of fresh seafood and tasty side dishes are being served up at Whistler’s newest restaurant, The Grill Room, located at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Under the direction of Executive Chef, Vincent Stufano, this newly re-branded restaurant will feature regional ingredients with seasonal influences such as Canadian AAA Prime Beef, Ocean Wise Seafood, and organic produce grown by our local farmers. “When you use what’s local it’s fresher, you get a better quality product and it is more interesting, especially for our international guests. It helps to support our economy and minimizes our carbon footprint.” Vincent said of his inspiration behind this new menu.
Sommelier, Benjamin Bureau, is on hand throughout the evening to help you choose the perfect bottle or glass of wine to pair with your meal. Benjamin works with local and international wineries seeking out those that offer a consistent, quality product in line with the standards of The Grill Room restaurant.
While steaks and Canada AAA Prime beef are certainly one of the highlights of the new menu, fresh seafood choices, free range organic chicken and a vegetarian quinoa risotto, ensure there is something for everyone. Whether it’s an intimate dinner for two, or a celebration among a group of friends, The Grill Room’s relaxed atmosphere, complete with fireplace and cherry wood wine cabinets, make it the perfect choice for a night out in Whistler.
Looking to celebrate a special occasion? The Grill Room’s intimate Private Dining Room with floor to ceiling glass windows and rich décor accommodates up to 18 guests and is perfect for a social gathering or after work party.
For those looking for a truly authentic wintertime dining experience, The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Chalet is opening a week early on December 9th, thanks to the generous early season snow fall. Featuring a hearty three course fondue dinner in the summertime home of the Chateau Golf Course Club House, this winter dining experience can be paired with a horse drawn sleigh ride for a magical evening you won’t soon forget.
