O, Canada! A Toast to 150 Years!


– Celebrate Canada Day with Toptable Group –

Vancouver, B.C. (June 14th, 2017) – Celebrate Canada’s 150th with a taste of the True North’s quintessential flavours from Caesars to maple syrup. Join Toptable Group for a celebratory cocktail or make dessert the star of the show with a birthday cake like none other.


Araxi Restaurant + Oyster Bar joins in on the party with Canada Day weekend brunch offerings that are an ode to Executive Chef James Walt’s longstanding commitment to farm-to-table dining. Join us on Araxi’s patio and be front and center to watch the July 1st festivities unfold in Village Square. Reservations for the popular brunch are highly recommended and can be confirmed by calling 604 932 4540.

Raise a glass or two at Bar Oso with Bar Manager Jason Redmond’s amazing Oso Sour featuring maple candied bacon and say, “Happy Birthday, Canada!” Cozy up to the bar and watch Chef Jorge Muñoz Santos prepare delicious shared plates that are a match made in heaven with Bar Oso’s creative libations.

Pop some bubbly at Blue Water Cafe and indulge in champagnes by the glass. Sip and savour a beautiful flute of Blue Mountain, House of Lanson, Taittinger, or Delamotte, and pair it with Blue Water’s seafood towers from the raw bar for a celebration of flavours to salute the flag. Call Blue Water Cafe today for reservations at 604 688 8078.

CinCin Ristorante + Bar shakes things up with a celebratory nod to the iconic Caesar — a Canadian classic.

Thierry Cafe makes celebrations extra special with limited edition macarons and cakes that take their inspiration from hazelnuts and artisanal maple syrup. Try Chef Thierry Busset’s dreamy hazelnut macaron layered with luscious maple buttercream at $2.50 per piece.

In honour of Canada’s 150th, Chef Thierry creates a birthday cake featuring chewy hazelnut dacquoise, a maple ganache studded with whole toasted hazelnuts, and a light maple cream balanced with a layer of dark chocolate mousse. Decadent and truly a work of art, three sizes are available from $33.95 (small), $44.95 (medium) to $55.95 (large).
