Summerdine 2019



Imagine 22 separate dinner parties, more than 200 seats, all at the same time on one night from Vancouver to the Okanagan, the Fraser Valley to Vancouver Island. Yup, that’s right. Les Dames d’Escoffier – BC Chapter’s annual dining extravaganza Summerdine returns this year even bigger and better than ever on Wednesday, August 14 (and one special dinner on August 15).

With unique locations that include aboard a yacht in Coal Harbour, at a table set in a vineyard, in a Teepee in the Okanagan and on a private terrace overlooking the North Shore mountains, Summerdine is a not-to-be-missed evening of delicious food, fine wine and conviviality.

Most dinner parties are small (between four to eight seats only) with a couple of exceptions – a long table for 20 set on the top of Pacific Yacht Charter and a special dinner on Thursday, August 15 at Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse on Vancouver Island which is for 100 people.

In addition to many returning favourites such as ARC at the Fairmont Waterfront,Fable KitchenHart HouseVij’s and RauDZ Regional Table, some of this year’s new locations include:

In Vancouver:  Coquille Fine SeafoodDouce DinerEdible CanadaPacific Institute of Culinary Arts (PICA), The Vancouver Club

In the Fraser Valley:  Annora RestaurantTrading Post BreweryTownship 7 Vineyards (with Well Seasoned)

In the Okanagan:  Red Fox Club at Indigenous World WineryOld Vines Restaurant at Quail’s GateTime Winery

Summerdine 2019


Regardless of the location, all diners will be treated to a specially-designed multiple-course menu, wines (or beer or cider) selected to complement that menu, a special table or location and an opportunity to meet and chat with the chefs and restaurateurs.

All Summerdine dinners are value-priced at $80 per person and include the multi-course meal with paired beverages (gratuity not included). The Vancouver Island event at Sea Cider is priced at $100 per person. Not a bad deal when you consider the price of a good meal including wine or how hard it is to get reservations at some of these places while others are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

Les Dames d’Escoffier – BC Chapter are very grateful to all of Summerdine 2019 restaurant/location hosts for their support and to Summerdine’s beverage sponsors –   C.C.
