A table set for over a hundred, a snow-capped mountain in the background, and the bounty of a valley farm served up by one of the best restaurants in the province — that was our Araxi Longtable experience at North Arm Farm in Pemberton a few summers ago. This year, Whistler-based Araxi Restaurant and Executive Chef James Walt will be bringing that incredible outdoor dining experience to three locations for the Araxi Longtable Series.
Each longtable event has space for 300 people and will feature local ingredients served up into a four-course menu thanks to Chef Walt and his team. Each event will have a cocktail reception followed by dinner with wine pairings by Araxi wine director Samantha Rahn, 2013 Sommelier of the Year, and service orchestrated by renowned restaurant director Neil Henderson.
Date: Monday, August 4, 2014
Location:Bard on the Beach at Vanier Park
Details: New this year, the inaugural Longtable Dinner in Vancouver will be the largest dinner to date and will provide a dramatic oceanside setting. Chef Walt leads the charge and as a special treat, welcomes his Vancouver-based Toptable Group counterparts Andrew Richardson from CinCin, Frank Pabst from Blue Water Cafe, Quang Dang from West, and Thierry Busset from Thierry Chocolaterie Patisserie and Cafe for guest appearances.
