Best Okanagan 2010

Gold: Waterfront Restaurant & Wine Bar

Silver: Bouchons Bistro
Bronze: Cabana Grille
Honourable Mention: RauDZ Regional Table

Top honours to Waterfront for sending miraculously layered dishes from its tiny kitchen. Bouchons takes Silver for elegant French bistro classics. Cabana Grille (Bronze) “is doing everything right” with topnotch ingredients, careful preparation, and a home-cooked approach; our judges loved chef Ned Bell’s Okanagan apples dipped in hot cheese fondue. Honourable Mentions to RauDZ Regional Table for “great rockfish and chips, made deep-fryer-free, and a modern tuna casserole. Chef Rod Butters made a smart shift from formal to casual dining, without dumbing down the clever comfort food.”
