Seven Restaurant – A Jewel In Whislter

Whistler, British Columbia is the resort to watch from now to 2010. With the Olympic Games just three small years away, operators are making their moves and polishing their acts. Seven Restaurant opened in December of 2006 to a record season for snow in this cozy ski village. In the former location of Val D’Isere Brasserie, this a the latest jewel at the foot of Whistler Mountain.

Walking into the room at Seven, you notice dark woodwork with vibrant color on the walls with contemporary Asian accents. The lounge area features a comfortable, inviting and fun atmosphere, with leather couches strategically placed in front of the front windows to people watch. A excellent amount of tables are available as well to sample tapas, Apre Ski, discussing the days rugged terrain over one of their signature Martini’s. A long bar is towered by a huge plasma T.V. playing classic black and white movies, while jazzy sounds come through the sound system. The main dining room is intimate with white linen adorned tables, fireplace burning, and a huge fabric covered bench on the right wall. Each table has polished silverware and small square “tapas” plates which our server informed us were to share the small plate offerings amongst ourselves.

Content with the dining ambiance we pursue the menu which is the”Jewel of Seven”. This list of options is billed a Fusion Cuisine done “Tapas” style to share. The menu reads like a journey abroad; Dungeness Crab Maki Rolls with Avocado Carpaccio, General Tso’s Calamari, Salmon Latke’s with Wasabi Bearnaise, Bison, Duck Pasta with Truffle Broth, Lettuce “wrapped” Fried Oysters. We started with a sesame seared tuna tetaki, cooked rare and sliced with an fascinating salad of pea & bean sprouts with sesame, soy and “liquid wasabi”. The Wok Fried Calamari came with chopsticks, as we sampled it we were enthralled by it’s sweet and sour elements as well as spicy from charred hot peppers. We also tried the duck breast tapa which was another sweet sauce affair led by a sangria-baby pear reduction. It really worked quite well as the meatiness of the duck and the sweet sauce were offset by some plain but earthy steamed baby bok choy. Seven also offers large plate entrees, we tried the rack of lamb and local sablefish. The sablefish is really black cod and it came with an espresso glaze over orange brandy scented cous cous. The lamb rack was close trimmed and cut in chops with creamed leeks, mashed potatoes and a goat cheese stuffed fried “ravioli”. High marks for their small but clever dessert list, “chai” tiramisu, creme brulee with a fresh berry “martini” and molten chocolate bread pudding all stood out.

Seven has some nice options, dinner by the fireplace or appetizers in the lounge. The best part is the the food delivers in flavor and are all presented on over sized square and rectangular platters with some infused oils and contemporary garnishes. Seven is located in Bear Plaza in the Whister Ski Resort. Reservations can be made on line at Sevenwhistler.com or by calling 604.932.4666.
