– Legendary Toptable Group Service Makes Second Appearance in Whistler –

Vancouver, BC (October 15th, 2015) – Today Toptable Group President Michael Doyle announced the opening date of the hospitality group’s much-anticipated new Whistler property. Bar Oso will open on Saturday, October 31st, the same day sister-restaurant Araxi opened 34 years ago.

“This is where we began over three decades ago so it’s fitting that we welcome our second Whistler property, and sixth in our portfolio, on the same day 34 years later,” stated Doyle. “We could not be more thrilled to bring the legendary Toptable Group service to Whistler once again.”

Araxi’s renowned restaurant director Neil Henderson and award-winning executive chef James Walt will oversee all aspects of the operation at both Bar Oso and The Cellar by Araxi ensuring guests will continue to enjoy the long held international reputation for excellence in food, wine, and hospitality that Araxi Restaurant guests have come to expect.
