The Fairmont Pacific Rim is bringing back the art of the dinner party by introducing The Curator’s Table, a new table for eight dinner guests dedicated to the art of great conversation, fueled by food and wine.
Perched on the hotel’s second level, over-looking The Lobby Lounge, this exclusive table seats eight guests only, and invites the question, “If you could invite seven people to a dinner party, who would they be?” Guests will be encouraged to craft their thoughts and share them in the dedicated guestbook.
The evening begins with a reception featuring a signature cocktail designed to complement the evening’s affair, and to bring guests together for a mix and mingle before the ‘main event.’ Guests then move to The Curator’s Table- a solid custom-made round table surrounded by eight chairs of beech wood and chic off-white leather, and set with Versace chargers, and Sambonet ‘Imagine Gold’ flatware. “The table was designed to be a destination experience in one of the world’s iconic cities, and we hope that guests will count it as a social highlight,” says Philip Barnes, General Manager Fairmont Pacific Rim & Regional Vice President, Pacific Northwest.
The hotel’s executive chef and his culinary brigade will take the lead in creating a personalized menu, in the moment or planned ahead of time, if guests prefer. It is intended to be a multi-course menu of the freshest regional, seasonal ingredients – paired with wines of the guests’ choice or selected by the hotel’s sommelier.
Guests at The Curator’s Table will have a front row seat to the never-ending lobby activity and nightly live music in The Lobby Lounge, while enjoying their own robust conversation. An evening experience that illustrates the power that food has to connect people together.
The Curator’s Table is available for private bookings each evening. Reservations can be made through the hotel’s food and beverage office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with a minimum of 72 hours notice.
