hon­ourable men­tions Bear­foot Bistro, Bar Oso

An­other up­set cat­e­gory this year. It’s hap­pened only once be­fore that Araxi didn’t win Gold (in 2009, when Bear­foot Bistro took the hon­ours). This time, it’s thanks to chef Is­abel Chung of Fair­mont Chateau Whistler’s the Grill Room. Chung wowed the judges with her bril­liant for­est-, farm-, field- and fish-to-fork menu that in­cludes the likes of cedar-cured ivory salmon with ap­ple cream. Araxi and its new chef Quang Dang is still get­ting a lot of love with Sil­ver, while Alta Bistro, the peren­nial hip­ster of the group, shows it can still medal with the best of them.
