Up­scale din­ing fea­tur­ing the fla­vors of the ocean and the sto­ries of lo­cal farm­ers

Vancouver Magazine - Best of the City 2016 - - Experience -

A BENCH­MARK OF RE­LAXED CON­TEM­PO­RARY LUX­URY, the land­mark Fair­mont Water­front’s new ARC is be­com­ing syn­ony­mous for i ts time­less ap­peal, the servers’ seam­less ser­vice and the cel­lar’s ex­ten­sive wine se­lec­tion. Aptly named for its stun­ning new de­sign – ARC in­stills a sense of en­ergy and con­nec­tiv­ity.

Within the kitchen, un­der the tal­ented di­rec­tion of ex­ec­u­tive chef Dana Hauser, dishes burst with nat­u­ral flavour. Thanks to Hauser and Chef Alessan­dro Vianello’s com­bined pas­sion for re­spect­ing the purest sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents, then cre­at­ing them ac­cord­ing to the shared dic­tates of her vi­sion - sim­ple, fresh, lo­cal and hand­crafted - the carte du jour is an ex­cit­ing culi­nary jour­ney through the best of au­then­tic West­coast cui­sine.

Din­ner plates are full of flavour­ful com­po­si­tions that stay true to ARC’s con­cept, such as i ts sig­na­ture lo­cal Dun­geness crab or spot prawns.

“I cel­e­brate what’s in sea­son and en­hance it with sim­ple flavours… it’s not com­pli­cated,” says the trans­ported New­found­lan­der, adding ARC is Ocean Wise cer­ti­fied.

ARC is an ex­em­plary sea­sonal, sus­tain­able North­west story with its rooftop gar­den with or­gan­i­cally grown sea­sonal pro­duce and herbs that end up on your plate. In ad­di­tion, its bee­hive brings into be­ing a de­li­cious honey lager.

The glam­orous mod­ern bar and lounge is fun for sip­ping culi­nary in­spired cock­tails or hand­crafted lo­cal beers, while lis­ten­ing to some fab­u­lous lo­cal mu­si­cal tal­ent.

With its floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows tak­ing in the mag­nif­i­cent down­town water­front land­scapes, ARC is the per­fect way to cel­e­brate West Coast ur­ban ar­ti­san food in ar­guably one of the most spec­tac­u­lar set­tings in the city.
