At West, our philosophy is simple. Begin with the best local ingredients from a loyal cadre of farmers, ranchers and fishers. Next, deliver complexity without complication—flavours that resonate and speak precisely to where we live, but also say that great food and drink needn’t be reserved for a special occasion. And finally, that they’re served in an intimate setting of genuine hospitality.
