The GOODS from Wildebeest
Vancouver, BC | It’s ‘the more, the merrier’ this Valentine’s Day at Wildebeest when the Gastown dining destination celebrates the special day with a decadent, multi-course feast that’s a perfect fit for double dates on Friday, February 14.
Tickets to the dinner, which offers a choice of dishes such as poached sablefish, confit pork belly and Beretta Farms flat iron steak, as well as a Valentine’s dessert for two of ‘chocolate & cherry’ (dark chocolate ganache, preserved titan cherry, cannoli pastry, Chantilly), are available for $69 per person plus tax and gratuity. Groups of four can also take advantage of special ‘double date’ pricing, with four-top tables offered at a special rate of $60++ per person.
Optional wine pairings handpicked by Wine Director Christina Hartigan are also available for an additional $35++ per person, while Bar Manager Darren O’Grady will shake up a special Valentine’s Day take on the classic Clover Club cocktail with the ‘Clover Over Dover’ — a tart and lip-smacking libation served tableside that mingles gin, sweet and dry varieties of vermouth, raspberry liqueur and citrus.
