From June 17 – 27, glowbal grill, COAST Restaurant, Sanafir, Italian Kitchen, Trattoria Italian Kitchen, and SOCIETY Dining Lounge are celebrating the summer sunshine that’s sure to come our way – with culinary delights inspired by exotic locales both near and far.
From the BC Coast to Spain and Southern Italy, each of our restaurants has a destination your palate craves.
glowbal showcases the intense flavour of Wagyu Beef with tender selections from Snake River Farms. Based in Eastern Idaho, Snake River crosses its premiere Japanese Wagyu cattle with Black Angus cattle to create American Wagyu Beef. Appetizers include Pepper-Crusted Wagyu Chuck Carpaccio or a Wagyu Short Rib with sweet pea ravioli. For entrees, move onto the Wagyu Tenderloin and Atlantic Lobster Duo or the Prosciutto wrapped Kurobuta Pork Rack paired with apple-pecan chutney and fingerling potatoes. Bring it back home with the Okanagan Peach Cobbler for dessert.
COAST offers a boatload of BC Coast-inspired creations on its menu. Appetizers include smoked Qualicum Beach Scallops and fresh Dungeness Crab Cakes. The bounty of the West Coast is highlighted with entrees like Queen Charlotte Halibut served with creamed leeks and baby beets, or Wild BC Salmon paired with Salt Spring Island Mussels. For dessert, partake in the frozen strawberry parfait, bursting with marinated berries and sweet cassis syrup.
Discover Spain at Sanafir. A bowl of Sopa de Ajo kicks off the Spanish serenade; the ham and garlic soup is topped with a poached quail’s egg. The feature Tapas Trio includes braised pork cheek, grilled prawn with sweet corn, and boquerone and artichoke heart ensalada. Say hola to cinnamon churros for dessert.
Explore the Liguria region of Italy at Italian Kitchen. Sample the Steamed Razor Clams or a Grilled Vegetable Calzone for the Primo Piatto. Entrees include the Branzino-Mediterranean Sea Bass with cucumber-tomato gazpacho, and the Poached Tuna Trenette Pasta featuring fresh heirloom tomatoes. The Ligurian Lemon Cake includes the quintessential Italian ingredient – olive oil – to create an elegant and irresistibly moist treat.
Trattoria tips its hat to Basilicata – a tiny region in Southern Italy – with a menu big on flavour. Whet your appetite with the Savory Fig And Fennel Crostini or a Peperonata Calzone. Entrees include Orecchiette Vongole – a pasta dish featuring manila clams and barlotti beans, or the Forno Roasted Lamb Loin. If you still have room for dessert, Trattoria is dishing up Burricotta Cannoli, featuring rich burricotta cheese and pistachio crema.
Dig into the goodness of comfort food at SOCIETY. Sweet Potato Chili Fries and Iceberg Lettuce Salad with baby shrimp and double-smoked bacon are appetizers sure to satisfy. Southern-inspired Chicken Fried Steak is complemented with creamy mashed potatoes, and the classic clubhouse sandwich gets a redesign with seared rare Ahi Tuna, crisp prosciutto and chipotle mayo. Round out the meal with a slice of Key Lime Pie for dessert.
