Bar Oso Sets High Standards

I had high expectations when I visiting Bar Oso last weekend. Owned by celebrated hospitality group Top Table, They run some of BC’s most iconic restaurants, including CinCin, West, Araxi and Blue Water Cafe. So, it’s no wonder that I had high hopes for a delicious meal.

Let’s start with the locale: Whistler Village. This town’s mostly known for its sky resort reputation,  Bar Oso fills the need of a high-end, quality experience with a more casual atmosphere. A Spanish-tapas inspired menu and an inspiring cocktail list is just what Whistler needed.

Speaking of, menus, there are some items that are a must have when visiting Bar Oso, starting with their Fresh Charcuterie Boards.  If you’re serious about Spanish tapas, the Jamon Iberico is a must order. This Spanish ham comes from pigs on a strict acorn  diet, and the nutty taste of the meat is undeniable. Other a la carte delicatessens include Prosciutto San Danielle and aged local cheeses.

Included in their lunch menu are soups and side dishes that fit any budget. Their Ajo Blanco Soup for example, is a mix of almonds, olive oil and grapes that’s simply delightful without breaking the bank.

Make sure to save room for dessert! Bar Oso’s the Valrhona chocolate tart is totally worth it.
