Botanist Restaurant will soon open doors on April 24, 2017 at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel. Replacing the old Oru Cuisine is a beautiful West Coast botanical chic restaurant.
This #plantlife decor with soft pink aesthetic is designed by award-winning Ste. Marie Design (Kissa Tanto, Savio Volpe, Mosquito) with with brand and identity developed by Glasfurd & Walker (Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie, Ask for Luigi, The Juice Truck).
The Champagne Lounge overlooks The Lobby Lounge on the second floor and is surrounding by glass and planters for a brighter and more airy vibe. Small indulgences include oysters, caviar, seasonal crudités, and local artisanal cheese platters.
The Cocktail Lab led by Grant Sceney, the hotel's creative beverage director, and David Wolowidnyk, Botanist head bartender, offers select libations with a chemist-like sentiment inspired by roots and botanical background.
Candy Cap Magic (above): mushroom rye, vermouth, spiced maple, forest, and moss for its sweet and refreshingly appeal.
Executive Chef Hector Laguna's menu is Pacific Northwest focused rooted by seasonally abundance, sustainably sourced seafood and organic agricultural. You will find lots of root vegetables, oven-roasted halibut with spring vegetables and crab emulsion, and herb crusted lamb rack with green garlic panisse, fava and shallots.
The menu is accompanied by wine director Jill Spoor's boutique terroir-driven wine program that supports sustainable, organic and biodynamic farming and winemaking practices.
Everything about Botanist looks promising and we can't wait to come back once they open for a relaxed #pnw dining experience!
Doors opens to the public next Monday! See you there!
