Executive chef James Walt’s imaginative preparations and three-dimensional flavour combos define the Araxi dining room, perhaps Whistler’s first fine-dining restaurant. The ever-changing menu features all that is local, seasonal, and sustainable in B.C. Great bar, deep wine list. One caveat: the room can get rambunctious. Special note: book early for the twice-a-summer Araxi Longtable Dinner series, a five-course meal complete with wine pairings and cocktails in a beautiful outdoor setting.
