Our concept is simple, in one word it is "integrity". We strive to serve all our food with integrity. That starts at the very core basics, what comes from the earth to feed our bodies and soul should be honored and returned to the earth in every way possible. We believe that food comes from the garden to the plate and circles back to the compost. Everything we do, we do it with that circle in mind. We are blessed to live in a place of abundance like Whistler and Pemberton, where to serve amazing food is easy. But, to serve food that also is produced with a minimal impact on the environment is a serious choice and one that we make every day, regardless of the time and money. When we created "The Venue" restaurant we choose to partner with others that share this belief, like Sea to Sky Soils, Ice Cap Organics, Tableau Water and Two Rivers Specialty Meats. Our kitchen is filled with everything we can find that is organic and grown locally. This mindset follows through to the wines we feature. Local vintners, like "Hugging Tree", "Fort Berens" and "Tightrope" who all follow similar principles. Even our table water provided by Tableau Water produces no plastic for our restaurant. Everything is fresh, organic, local and served with gratitude for our earth that provided it.
