Fun and elegance collide at The Westin Bayshore this spring with lively Easter brunch and refined afternoon tea

Step into a new season at H2 Rotisserie & Bar and H Tasting Lounge

 

The Westin Bayshore’s H2 Rotisserie & Bar and H Tasting Lounge welcome spring with menus that your taste buds are bound to remember. Poised at the edge of Stanley Park and boasting views of Coal Harbour and the North Shore Mountains, The Westin Bayshore is a restful base from which to enjoy the blossoming of a new season.

H2 Rotisserie & Bar pulls out all the stops this Easter with an extensive brunch buffet and activities that promise fun for all ages. Known for its farm-to-fork fare and family-style dining, H2 blends traditional Easter activities with an over the top buffet display on Sunday, April 1, from 11:45am until 3pm. Feast on the Chef’s seasonal creations while children take part in an Easter egg hunt in the poolside garden and enjoy a special delivery by the Easter Bunny himself.

This Easter spread is one for the books and boasts a variety of seafood on an ice tower; braided Easter bread; granola pancakes; artisanal cheese and charcuterie, and much more. These choices complement chef-manned action stations serving H2’s signature rotisserie chicken and honey-glazed ham, prosciutto sliced to order, and customized omelettes. After the savoury element of the meal, few will be able to resist Easter cookies, chocolates, a fully-stocked candy bar, cinnamon walnut coffee cake, and Easter-themed cupcakes. Throughout the brunch, live music and tableside Caesars, mimosas, and Bloody Marys liven the mood.

The entire experience is available for $70 (adults) and $25 (children under 11). To reserve your table, visit h2restaurant.com or call 604.691.6966.

Eastern and Western afternoon tea brings a daily dose of spring to H Tasting Lounge. Thoughtfully prepared sweet and savoury options make the whimsical display as picture-worthy as it is delicious. Throughout April, both tea services will offer seasonal TEALEAVES Cherry Blossom Green Tea, a Japanese sencha that is lightly infused with sweet candied cherry. The tea was created to commemorate Japan’s Cherry Blossom Festival and is especially timely as Vancouver’s own cherry trees begin their gorgeous display.

Pair up your selection with a Sakura Sidecar, the Cherry Blossom Green Tea-infused cocktail that blends Hennessy cognac, fresh lemon juice, dry curacao, and a cherry blossom white cotton candy floss together to form a tasty concoction.

H Tasting Lounge offers tea service Monday – Friday from 11:30am to 5pm, and on weekends from 12pm to 5pm for $48 per person. For reservations, visit htastinglounge.com or call 604.691.6962.
