During our family trip to Canada Justin and I scheduled a date night one night while we were in Whistler. Justin and I at first were a little hesitant getting a babysitter since we’ve never left Mason with anyone except our parents but realized we really needed a little time to ourselves. I think as parents it’s so important to schedule date nights with each other. Our hotel helped up with the recommendation for the babysitting service and we were so happy they did. Our babysitter was just lovely and Mason seemed to be drawn to her right away and was distracted before we even left our hotel room.
I had contacted The Fairmont Chateau Whistler right after we had booked our flights to see about collaborating and while they were fully booked and could not offer us a room they were generous enough to invite us to dine in their restaurant, The Wildflower.
Before our dinner they asked me if we had any dietary restrictions so I was assuming that they were going to give us a prefix menu. But to my surprise when we arrived we were able to order anything we wanted off the menu. They had asked because their Chef is more than willing to add a dish to the menu to accommodate anyones dietary restrictions, they just need enough time to prepare. So if you are planning on going to The Fairmont in Whistler (or I would assume any Fairmont would have the same accommodation) and you are dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian or any other food restriction they are more than happy to create a special plate just for you!
To start we shared a Zucchini salad and an amuse bouche that the Chef prepared for us. I ended up having their fish of the day which was Ahi Tuna (one of my favorites) and Justin enjoyed the Slow Roast Prime Rib. And for dessert I got a coconut milk latte, Justin got a coffee, and we shared the Strawberry Pavlova. It looked so gorgeous we almost didn’t want to eat it, but then we cut into it and couldn’t have been happier with our choice!
Thank you so much to the Fairmont Chateau Whistler for hosting our dinner at The Wildflower restaurant. As always the opinions expressed in this post are my own. Thank you for supporting those businesses that help make this blog possible.
