Whistler’s Bar Oso Opens for Lunch
– Toptable Group Terraces Ready for Summer Season –

Vancouver B.C. (May­­­ 5th, 2016) – Early summer weather heralds al fresco cocktails and dining at CinCin Ristorante, Blue Water Cafe, and Araxi Restaurant and Oyster Bar, while Whistler’s newest hot spot, Bar Oso, announced it will soon open for lunch.

BarOso_BocadillosFollowing a successful winter season and only days after receiving its first culinary accolade, the team at Bar Oso has announced it will open for lunch daily at 11:30 am from Monday, May 16th onwards. Chef Jorge will introduce bocadillos to the menu plus new soups and salads, in addition to the already popular house-made charcuterie.

Each of Toptable Group’s Vancouver terraces are now open to celebrate the season over cool libations and seasonal menus. The recently renovated terrace at CinCin Ristorante, a quiet repose perched above bustling Robson Street, opens at 4:30 pm every afternoon. It’s the perfect place to meet friends and colleagues to sample cocktails from award-winning Bar Manager David Wolowidnyk’s brilliant new summer list, and to relax into the evening over Executive Chef Andrew Richardson’s delicious summer menus.

The patio at Blue Water Cafe is now open for the summer, and is the finest place in Yaletown for people-watching and drinks, fresh sushi from the raw bar, and Vancouver’s best seafood from Executive Chef Frank Pabst’s award-winning menu. Bar Manager Colin MacDougall will also be crafting lighter cocktails to reflect the changing of the seasons.

At Araxi Restaurant and Oyster Bar in Whistler, guests can soon watch the stream of tourists and locals pass through the Village Square while luxuriating patio-side. Executive Chef James Walt’s seasonal menus kick into full gear, featuring local produce from Pemberton Valley farmers, and fresh seafood from his favorite coastal suppliers. The patio opens daily at 2:30 pm in early June for oysters and après then dinner at 5:00 pm, and will be open for brunch every weekend from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm throughout the summer months.
