ABOUT RAUDZ REGIONAL TABLE

RauDZ-community-table-&-boo

Our philosophy is simple…support local, buy local, eat and drink local.  We are committed to our community, our suppliers, our environment and to you, our friends and neighbours.

BC Restaurant Hall of Fame inductee Chef Rod Butters’ menu focuses on fresh, local, seasonal and organic produce with an amazing 80% regionally based.  He feels so strongly that the producers are a major ingredient in the success of his menu, framed photographic portraits of the suppliers and their colourful produce are featured around the entire restaurant.  Guests can literally feel a connection to the food on their plate with this artwork.

The focal point of the restaurant is a beautiful 21-foot table in 120 year old reclaimed Midnight Pine. This table was custom made by local woodworker, Will Brundula, and features no nails or screws but uses a mortise, dowel and tenon construction.  The table sits on a trestle base reminiscent of the Kettle Valley Railway trestles. Comfortable banquettes and booths surround the entire space that features the brick from the original 106 year old heritage building,

RauDZ Liquid Chefs host guests at the expansive 28-foot, 15 seat fir bar where you can create your own fruit martini from fresh fruit purees made in house, enjoy a locally crafted beer or a glass of award winning Okanagan wine.

In the words of food and arts critic Jurgen Gothe, “Butters is the consummate Canadian-born, Canadian trained, Canadian chef, the kind that eventually….create what we’ll come to call Canadian cusine.”

“I liked it so much I wished I could stay longer for a second visit to try more dishes.”  Mia Stainsby, Vancouver Sun

“It’s a commitment to local organic ingredients that make RauDZ Regional Table the unique and flavourful dining experience it is.” Wine Trails

“The table is so much more than just a cool Euro-style share table—it stands for community and that is what Rod and Audrey are all about. Huge supporters of the eat local movement; they even have beautifully framed photographs of their suppliers dotting the walls in tribute—love that. Nice to look up and see the smiling familiar faces of these suppliers knowing that the food I am eating is also supporting their businesses—this is community.”  Kelowna Capital News
