News From Scout supporters Fraîche and Beachside Forno

West Vancouver, BC | From the soil to the sky there’s fun to be had at West Vancouver eateries, Beachside Forno and Fraîche Restaurant.  Make the most of the sunny days and warm nights by adding some flavour to two signature Greater Vancouver events, the 20th Annual Celebration of Light Fireworks Festival and the Ambleside Farmer’s Market. Details on both after the jump…

Visit the Ambleside Farmers’ Market – Join us for Brunch at Beachside Forno

Nothing says summer like fresh local produce and Beachside Forno has a ringside seat to the Ambleside Farmer’s Market every Sunday from 10am to 3pm, now through the end of October.  Join us for a leisurely brunch or lunch  of hearty and healthy west coast favourites before or after the charming outdoor market. The Ambleside Farmer’s Market hosts a great variety of produce from organic and conventional farmers. There’s also a good selection of prepared foods like baking, syrups, jams, jellies, honey, salsas, anti pastas and more. Not all the goodies are edible, save some room in your bag for locally made crafts including  jewellery, clothing, wrought iron, garden sculptures, soaps and pottery.  Ambleside Market also has a book exchange, games table, kids play area and live music. Hope to see you at Beachside Forno this weekend –  reservations are welcome, please call us at 604.926.3332.

Beachside Forno is THE place to go in Ambleside.  Offering a stylish relaxed space overlooking the beach, ocean, mountains and Vancouver skyline, this “landmark” building has long been a neighbourhood favourite.  Chef Dino Renaerts has created a fun, casual atmosphere where mouth-watering nourishing fare and welcoming service are served up. With its large sunny patio and airy interior, it’s an ideal spot for a romantic cocktail, friendly lunch, gatherings for family and friends and, of course, to watch the summer sunset.

Enjoy a Delicious Vantage Point for the 20th Annual Celebration of Light Fireworks Festival

What pairs well with Spanish fireworks?  How about a summer corn bisque, roasted Fraser Valley duck breast and a nice bottle of Spain’s 2004 Tinto Pesquera?  Add some friendly service, a welcoming dining room and a stunning, panoramic view and you’ve got the makings of a great night out.  In fact, Fraîche has all kinds of fantastic west coast inspired dishes and worldly wines that pair perfectly with all matters of pyrotechnics.  Join us at Fraîche Restaurant for dinner and drinks as Spain, the USA, Mexico and China compete in the world’s largest off shore fireworks competition this summer.  Fraîche will be broadcasting the fireworks’ synchronized music so that guests don’t miss any impact of the sensory spectacle. The Celebration of Light events are scheduled for July 21, 24, 28 and 31 and are sure to be popular nights at Fraîche. Book now by calling us at 604.925.7565 or online.

Renowned as one of West Vancouver’s most celebrated dining experiences Fraîche Restaurant offers food that celebrates the best of the west coast, steadfast service and inspiring panoramic views. The menu reflects Chef Dino’s varied experience as one of Vancouver’s top chefs, while his sommelier training lends to an evolving wine selection paired to the menu and to great “by the glass” choices.  Food. Service. View. WOW!
