H Tasting Lounge and H2 Rotisserie & Bar at The Westin Bayshore, Vancouver, Celebrate Chinese New Year
Afternoon Tea, brunch menus, and a special festive cocktail honour
the Year of the Pig
As well, the HTL bartending team will be pouring the exclusive Year of the Pig cocktail ($16), crafted for the Lunar New Year and available exclusively during The Westin Bayshore’s celebrations. The complex concoction is a deliciously aromatic blend of Johnnie Walker Black Scotch whisky, golden apple and ginger-infused vodka, Buddha’s hand citron jelly, yellow chrysanthemum tea, and lemon juice.
H2 Rotisserie & Bar will ring in the Year of the Pig by complementing its sprawling, ever-popular Sunday Brunch ($39/person) with a variety of additional items just for Chinese New Year. From noon to 3pm on February 10 and 17, chef Caitlin Mark and her team will be serving up congee with traditional toppings, assorted dim sum, longevity noodles, “action stations” featuring made-to-order Peking duck rolls and bao buns, traditional desserts, and much more.
H2 Rotisserie & Bar’s bustling open kitchen emphasizes fresh local ingredients — including organic, free-range rotisserie chicken from Maple Hill Farms — while its bar features top Vancouver microbrews, cocktails using regionally distilled spirits, and BC wines on tap. H2’s Sunday Supper Series and rotating Fresh Sheets promote family-style dining, while the room is kept lively with chef-led cooking classes, Happy Hour and “Reverse Happy Hour” specials, and an expansive weekend brunch buffet featuring live music. h2restaurant.com
