Head up to Whistler, dine at Christines and check out the Fire & Ice Show – Yeah you could go a restaurant and watch a movie this weekend, but how about dining at the top of a mountain in a fabulous restaurant and watching an exciting show where riders jump through a ring of fire with a fireworks display at the end? Every Sunday Whistler Blackcomb offers the Fire & Ice Show at 6:30pm. Christine’s is newly open at the top of the mountain and offers a breathtaking view, check out my recent review here.
Treat your Valentine to a Chocolate Cave at Notch8 – Notch8’s private dining room will be transformed into a Chocolate cave, featuring floor-to-ceiling custom built chocolate covered walls and an amazing selection of chocolate desserts. Over 25 different sweets that include a dark chocolate fountain, mocha macarons, hand-formed truffles and much more served with a glass of champagne. Ok – sign me up right now.
Dine at one of Vancouver’s most romantic spots – L’Abattoir – I consider L’Abattoir one of the most romantic places to dine in the city. This year, they’re offering a four-course dinner in the private dining room – this dinner includes oysters, smoked duck breast, braised short rib and Black Forest gateaux and wine pairings throughout each course. Amazing!
Dinner starts at 7pm, tickets are $145 per person (plus 18% gratuity) that is taxes and wine pairings all in.
Indulge your Valentine in Faubourg Treats – Faubourg makes sweet Parisian treats that make for a great coffee date or a nice gift. The Macaron Heart is my choice – a heart
shaped macaron filled with dark chocolate mousse, salted caramel centre and fresh raspberries.
Stay in and create a gourmet meal with Fresh Prep – I love dining out, but nothing beats an amazing home cooked meal.
