Araxi Reveals Menu for Vancouver Longtable Dinner in Vanier Park
– Toptable Chefs Celebrate B.C.’s Culinary Provenance –

Vancouver, B.C.  (July 22, 2014) – The Araxi Longtable Dinners are British Columbia’s most exciting al fresco dining experiences – and on Monday, August 4th, Whistler’s Araxi Restaurant is bringing its first Longtable to Vancouver at the oceanside Bard on the Beach venue in picturesque Vanier Park.

“This will be the largest Longtable to date,” says Araxi’s award-winning executive chef James Walt, “and we’re thrilled to celebrate our culinary provenance with the very best of British Columbia ingredients at the peak of the summer season, as well as some terrific wine pairings.”

Chef Walt will be joined by the entire collective of Toptable Group chefs: Andrew Richardson from CinCin, Frank Pabst from Blue Water Cafe, Quang Dang from West, and Thierry Busset from Thierry Patisserie and Cafe. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet the suppliers who raise the produce.
