If you’re going to Dine Like A Critic, you’d better drink like one, too.
Alexandra Gill is perhaps best known as the long-time Vancouver restaurant critic for The Globe and Mail, but she is also the new editor of Canada’s Best Bars. So it’s no surprise that she has put cocktail pairings on the menu of her new luxury food tour company.
The Downtown Fine Dining Tour includes a one-hour stop at the Botanist in the Fairmont Pacific Rim—number 9 on the Top 50. After a tour of the cocktail laboratory, guests sit down to four courses (liquid and solid) including at least one of the bar’s high-concept lab drinks. “These are some of the most innovative cocktails in the country made by one of the best bars teams in the world,” says Gill. “It’s an honour to showcase them on my tours in this new way.”
The tours are $350, all inclusive. For more info or to book your own tour, visit dinelikeacritic.com.
