Enjoy summer themed menus and events at the lakeside oasis of Nita Lake Lodge
Summer has arrived and where better to soak in the long days and warm nights than on Nita Lake Lodge’s lakeside patio at Aura Restaurant. Encapsulated by unparalleled views and forested surroundings, Executive Chef Dean Hossack & Aura Chef Carl Wilks offer an array of fresh, seasonal flavours with Aura’s Summer Trio menu, alongside winemaker and brewmaster long-table dinners.
With a focus on sustainable, local produce and seasonal bounty, the Summer Trio menu begins with your choice of starter: Aura’s Summer Salad made with Rootdown Organic Farm’s greens and shaved veggies and drizzled with an aromatic truffle vinaigrette or Vancouver Island Salmon Tartar served with an apple & cucumber salad and crème fraiche. Followed by your choice of main: Grilled New York Steak and fingerling potatoes, finished with a veal jus, or vegetarian and vegan selections such as a house-made buckwheat gnocchi or slow roasted celeriac & roasted shallot soubise. To finish, indulge your sweet tooth with your choice of seasonal dessert, such as their vegan dark chocolate cremeux or tropical fruit vacherin with mango sorbet & coconut meringue.
All summer long, Aura Restaurant will also host a series of outdoor, long table winemaker and brewmaster dinners. Each of these four-course dinners with pairings will welcome a winery or brewery, such as Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers (July 25), Averill Creek Vineyard (August 8), Red Truck Beer Company (August 22), and LaStella Winery (Sept 12) to showcase the best of the B.C. region. Tickets cost $59/pp for brewmaster dinners and $79/pp for winemaker dinners, with advance bookings required. To book, please call 604.966.5700.
This fall, Aura Restaurant will follow in Cure Lounge’s footsteps with a complete renovation to welcome the winter season. Honouring the alpine surroundings, interior designer Carolyn Scholz and award-winning Scott & Scott Architects will weave in modern design elements for a perfect blend of rustic meets contemporary, renewing the space and anchoring Nita Lake Lodge as one of Whistler’s best culinary destinations.
