BEST NEW RESTAURANT
Foodies almost never have the same opinion about anything. Casual or fine dining? Quick eats or slow food? Organic or conventionally grown? Fortunately, everyone can agree on Hunter Gather. For a year now, this friendly spot in Whistler Village has been satisfying diners with its menu divided into “hunter” (beef brisket, chicken shawarma, pulled-pork sandwich, smoked meat on rye) and “gather” (veggie bowl, falafel, lentil burger, grilled cheese), with a bonus “go fish” category (smoked salmon, steelhead chowder, fillet of smoked steelhead). Poutine, corn bread, charcuterie and cheese boards, and sticky toffee cake round out the menu. One more thing everyone agrees on: the impressive roster of local craft beers and wines, best consumed on the huge patio.
