Araxi Restaurant Announces 2015 Longtable Dining Series Dates


Araxi Restaurant Announces 2015 Longtable Dining Series Dates
– Now Accepting Reservations for Vancouver and Pemberton Dinners –

 Whistler, B.C. (May 11th, 2015) – Araxi Restaurant and Oyster Bar in Whistler is once again welcoming guests to British Columbia’s most compelling and ambitious al fresco dining experiences – the Araxi Longtable Dining Series – on Monday, August 3rd and Saturday, September 5th in Vancouver and Pemberton, respectively.

Set in two striking outdoor settings, award-winning Executive Chef James Walt will craft exclusive four-course menus that showcase his internationally recognized farm-to-table dishes. With wine pairings by Samantha Rahn, 2013 Sommelier of the Year, and service orchestrated by renowned Restaurant Director Neil Henderson, the Longtable Dinners salute both Araxi’s culinary provenance and it’s future. This year, as a convenience for guests, the dinners will be staged on the BC Day and Labour Day long weekends.

2015 Longtable Dining Series Dates are:
Vancouver – Monday, August 3rd at ‘Bard on the Beach’, Vanier Park
Pemberton – Saturday, September 5th at North Arm Farm

The Vancouver dinner will once again be staged at ‘Bard on the Beach’ at Vanier Park. This dinner will welcome 250 guests to a dramatic urban setting, and Chef Walt will be supported by his Vancouver-based Toptable Group colleagues, chefs Frank Pabst of Blue Water Cafe, Andrew Richardson of CinCin Ristorante, Quang Dang of West Restaurant, and Thierry Busset of Thierry Chocolaterie Patisserie and Cafe.

The Pemberton Longtable Dinner will be the longest table staged at North Arm Farm to date. Chef Walt’s menu embraces the extraordinary local ingredients, harvested at the peak of the season, and guests will have the opportunity to meet the farmers and suppliers, and tour the organic fields where, just hours before, farmers pick the produce next to the outdoor kitchen.

Elegant yet informal, guests may arrive as strangers, but leave as long-lost friends. Tickets are just $159 plus tax and gratuity, and include a five-course dinner served ‘family style’ with selected wine pairings. The Longtable Dinners sell out quickly; reservations can be made online HERE or via email at
