Dine @ Whistler
Culture Club. |
La Brasserie des artistes.
Whistler Village Square.
La Brasserie is a nod to an emerging cultural scene that is maturing Whistler.
Featuring European charm blending into the
winding pedestrian stroll right off its patio, The Brass, as it's known, brings
an air of casual sophistication to Whistler's dining scene.
Run by congenial host Paulie Lavender this Brasserie fits ever so naturally into its environment.
La Brasserie's rustic booths line a
fabulous street mural on its upper level. A smattering of free standing 'street'
tables on the lower are graced by a French storm drain.
You know, just in case.
Large Windowed doors
then spill out to a showcase patio year round. In summer a superb rotation of
local musical talent
light up the Village Stroll from The Brass patio.
Whatever the season, the patio at La Brasserie is a prime people watching position that
draws many devotees.

Nothing beats kicking back on La Brasserie's patio over a nosh and drinks while a
steady stream of skiers come off the mountain at the end of any day.
In fact, anytime of the day is a good time to take in La Brasserie because they do a great
breakfast starting at 8am.
From a miniscule open kitchen just behind the busy bar comes a tasty menu
that's remarkable for its range.
Breakfast, available 'til 3 pm starts with The Usual eggs done
like you like then makes its way to
a great selection of Bennies, Rancheros or Pancakes. If
you're looking to start your day with a fluffy Omelette then La
Brasserie is definitely the place to go.
Afternoon appies start with the best French Onion soup in Whistler or
custom salads, inspired soups of the day, Calamari and a range of Specialty Nachos. Tex-Mex or Southern BBQ anyone?
Go Canadian and order Quebec style
Poutine or try a thin crust pizza.
Six Brass Burgers or a BLT are a hit
with adults, but even kids get their own menu.
Yes, The Brasserie is child friendly. How else are they going to learn to be social?
If there is any doubt you should
see Paulie being child friendly with locals near closing.
Speaking of evening, Mussels and Frites, Chicken Masala
and Wild Sockeye Salmon Filet crack the Dinner Menu
along with Braised Lamb Shank or a tremendous Jaeger Schnitzel.
Tiramisu, Lemon Tart or a Chocolate Brownie with gelato are desserts
with a message.
A Brasserie with terrific atmosphere
and menu to boot.
Not only is La Brasserie des artistes in
a prime location, but they put out inspired
plates as well.
It's wonderful when a restaurant
lives up to its location instead of milking it.
Don't give The Brass a try, Get Here!
You'll love the view and the food.
