I was invited to attend the media preview of the new Botanist Dining Room, Cocktail Bar and Champagne Lounge at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in Coal Harbour on Wednesday. The spacious restaurant, designed by Ste Marie Design with branding by Glasfurd & Walker, is incredibly stunning with a distinct bar, open kitchen, two dining areas with abundant natural lighting, and a terrace.
Inspired by the principals of botany, it’s represented in both the design and the food via the incorporation of lush greenery in its design. And as evidenced in one of their sleek cocktails that is infused with mushrooms – via soaking in whisky for two hours.
Botanist will officially open on April 22nd and the highly anticipated menu features ingredients sourced from their natural landscape and prepared with contemporary techniques – an ode to the botany of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.
I’m looking forward to it. Until next time.
