When I was a little girl, my parents took me to Sunshine Village for a family ski vacation. I remember waking up every morning and eating my fresh fruit breakfast in a dining room that, for me, epitomized the 1970’s. Imagine orange knit drapes, an open fireplace, tiled and wood walls, orange carpet and dark wood tables. Very hip.
Well, I relived my childhood in Whistler
last week – only this time I was feasting on black cod, crème brulee and sipping the best of BC wine in the Fifty Two 80 Bistro
, which is tucked away in the Four Seasons Resort
. The Bistro is also very 70’s – orange drapes, a round, open fireplace decorated in a mosaic of coloured tiles, low chairs, and orange carpet. Very hip, but now in a more chic-chic, retro way.
The service was incredible and the attentive waiter managed to make me feel as though I was getting special treatment. However, by the end of dinner I realized he was making everyone at our table feel as though they were the ones getting special treatment.
Overall, a hip place for an après-ski drink or a swanky dinner.
