Inside the Westin Resort and Spa, at the bottom of the Whistler Gondola, sits the Aubergine Grille - a restaurant designed to tantalize all your senses. As you walk in the doors, past the oversized windows that look out into the night, it’s easy to see how the Aubergine’s show kitchen gives guests a chance to see, smell and taste all the chef’s wonderful creations.
With new favourites for every season featuring the best local ingredients available, the chef has designed a menu so guests of the Westin, and others, can spend more than a week at the resort and never tire of the Aubergine’s offerings. Customers essentially create their own menu, with interchangeable entrees and sides.
Casual Fine Dining
While the 150-seat dining room is filled with white table cloths, guests don’t have to feel intimidated. The Aubergine is a fine dining restaurant that very comfortable, and causal dress is recommended. However, there is nothing casual about the dining experience. Fresh game and seafood, Alberta beef and Salt Spring Island lamb are always on order and those who know how a fine wine can complement a great dish are always at home at the Aubergine. The restaurant has won the Wine Spectator Magazine’s Award of Excellence for several years and each of its servers has the sommelier experience to help you make a great decision on what wine to pair with your meal. Throughout the year, the chef also creates winemaker dinners, coupling the best bottles with signature flavours.
Open All Day and All Year
The Aubergine also has a lunch menu, an à la carte breakfast and breakfast buffet where insiders have been heard to claim it’s the place on the mountain to come for mountains of food. Hearty and warm winter favourites dot the menu during ski and snowboard season, but when the snow melts and winter gives way to the long, warm days of summer, a menu featuring lighter fare is served inside and out on the 70-seat patio. Those looking to taste some of the best food and drink in the village should call to make a reservation at the Aubergine Grille.
