We spent four nights (Thursday-Sunday) at Whistler this past B.C. Day holiday weekend. On two of those nights we ate dinner at the Four Seasons Resort.
On Thursday night we ambled into the Fifty Two 80 Bistro & Bar for a cocktail and saw all the buzz out on the patio. Our server told us it was a barbeque, all-you-can-eat. My first question was, "Where is my 16-year-old son when I need him?"
I sipped on a couple of wines by the glass: the first was a Chardonnay (I wasn't crazy for it and didn't take a picture or any notes) to go along with my corn and salads, and the second was the 2007 SLC Syrah from Mission Hill Family Estate, which I sipped with all the meaty goodness. I really liked the Syrah.
Word has it that right at this moment (and we don't know for how much longer), Four Seasons Whistler wine director David Foran (known as @WineMedia on Twitter) will open any bottle of wine on his list for you if you order at least two glasses of that wine. Great opportunity to try some new wines.
I'll tell you all about our dinner last Sunday night at the Four Seasons Whistler's other restaurant, Sidecut, in a soon-to-be-published post. In the meantime, you can follow Four Seasons Resort, Whistler on Twitter here: http://Twitter.com/FSWhistler.
