Whistler’s Rising Foodie Scene: What To Order

Aside from the mountains, fresh air and nature, Whistler has a booming foodie scene that you just can’t miss.

1. The Spot: Bar Oso

Why Now: This has to be our top pick – a unique slice of San Sebastián in the middle of Whistler Village. Chef Jorge Munoz Santos is at the helm of the menu at the new, hip Bar Oso (Oso means “bear” in Spanish). His details and pinxtos will make any foodie swoon (imagine foie gras hand-painted with butter). And master mixologist Jason Redmond has put an experiential twist on craft cocktails, such as a maple bacon infused pisco sour and a gin and tonic enlisting winged kelp as an ingredient – think fishbowl without the swimmer!

Must Order: Oso Sour, G&Ts, Pinxtos, Wild Scallop Crudo, and Duck Liver Parfait.
