The Grill Room Awarded Top 100 Restaurant in Canada

Whistler, B.C. December 11, 2019 – On Monday, OpenTable released its list of the Top 100 Restaurants in Canada as selected by verified diners. Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s fine dining restaurant, The Grill Room, was the only Whistler restaurant to make the esteemed list. This nation-wide nod rounds out a trifecta of awards in 2019 for Fairmont’s talented culinary team.

Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s Executive Chef Isabel Chung, along with Executive Sous Chef Derek Bendig and Executive Pastry Chef Anup Chaubal, have spent the last number of years focusing on building a culinary program that focuses on sustainability while fostering relationships with local suppliers in an effort to share the highest quality ingredients with their guests across all six of Chateau Whistler’s restaurants.

Last week, The Grill Room released its new Winter Menu which features dishes derived from locally sourced ingredients from neighbouring Pemberton and Lillooet such as grass-fed, Pemberton Meadows 45-Day Dry Aged Rib Eye and Schramm Gin – made from Pemberton potatoes – used to flambé The Grill Room’s signature Tomato Soup table-side. The N’Quatqua Rainbow Trout is a favourite on the Whistler fine dining menu not just for its flavour but also for its story. Chef Bendig brings in the product up to thrice weekly from the N’Quatqua First Nations band in D’Arcy, just 77 kilometres north of Whistler.

A culinary experience at Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s Grill Room will leave guests feeling better acquainted with the farms and suppliers which surround the resort. Reservations for The Grill Room can be made online using OpenTable or by calling 604-938-8000.
